NBA Commissioner David Stern Presents Top 10 On ‘Letterman’ (Video)


David Stern’s retirement tour might not be quite as extravagant as Mariano Rivera’s, but the outgoing NBA commissioner did make an appearance on late-night television Thursday.

Stern, who will retire Feb. 1, was a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman, where he recapped the “Top 10 Things I’ve Learned in My 30 Years As Commissioner of the NBA.” It’s a pretty funny list, with entries ranging from “no NBA star has ever made a bad motion picture” (looking at you, Shaquille O’Neal) to “moisten needle before inserting.”

As he’s shown before in his trollerific draft-night performances, the commish certainly knows how to play to the crowd.
