Commissioner David Stern still says the NBA is need of some tweaking even after following the black eye of the lockout with a better-than-expected regular season.
At the start of the NBA Finals, Stern says he wants to eliminate flopping or downright “trickery” players use to fool officials. He is considering expanding instant replay use. He’s also discussing whether players from his league should compete in the Olympics.
There are also decisions to be made after the Memphis Grizzlies found a buyer this week, now that Sacramento’s plan for a new arena to keep the Kings fell through and as Seattle continues to pursue a team to replace the SuperSonics.
Stern says this season was “better than we could have hoped for” and fans expressed their support in record numbers.
