David Stern has had a few too many — too many waters, that is.

The NBA commissioner ran into a little problem while trying to take a swig from a bottle of water in the stands. Instead of a smooth sip of refreshment, Stern briefly choked on his H2O. If that’s what happens when Stern drinks water, our money’s not on him if he takes the cinnamon challenge.

At least Stern was good-natured about it. Seeing that his choke was noticed, Stern smiled.
