Jim Rome Asks David Stern If the Lottery Is Rigged….David Stern Asks Jim Rome If He Still Beats His Wife
So this interview is going viral right now. Basically Jim Rome interviewing David Stern and asking Stern if the lottery is rigged. A totally fair question since the league owned/owns the Hornets and everybody thinks it is. Stern responds by asking Rome whether he beats his wife. So far out of bounds it’s not even funny. Because I’m sure just like everybody else who was listening to this my kneejerk reaction was to think that Rome does or did beat his wife. For the record he doesn’t and never has been accused of that. It was just Sterns way of saying how dare you ask me such a ridiculous question. I thought Rome did an unreal job of handling that response. Kept his cool and really made the commissioner look like the smug, arrogant baby that he is. And when you seem smug and arrogant compared to Jim Rome you know somebody is really smug and arrogant. In fact I think I need to retract what I said a couple days ago about Tiger Woods being the smuggest human being on the planet. I was wrong. It’s David Stern. Just an insufferable SOB. I’d love for somebody just to beat the shit out him and take him down a few notches. Such an assface.
PS – The thing that triggered this and pissed Stern off was the Seattle jab. Totally fair and totally hilarious.
Double PS – Did I mention that after we filmed one of the Rome segments for his TV show he turned to me and said “That was 3 power minutes” Ha. Still cracks me up thinking about it.
