Yeah, Stern is so incredibly smart: he knew
that sending his minion, disguised as a reporter, to goad LeBron about "shirking his responsibilities" would thereby cause Bron to get all funked up and petulant and go exactly
3-11, thereby causing Dirk to catch a fever and miss a bunch of shots, thereby causing Carlisle to sub in Brian Cardinal, thereby causing Dirk to get pissed and go for a lay-up early in the shot clock, thereby causing DWade to go for a dunk, thereby causing the Heat to foul Terry, thereby causing Terry to go 2-2, thereby causing DWade to fumble an inbounds pass, thereby causing Mike Miller to heave up a prayer and miss, thereby causing the series to go for at least 6 games. Really genius, Stern is.

All this and his rebounding as well.
Terry isn't on my team so he bugs me completely. Are people in Houston pissed that he stole Kenny Smith's nickname?
I agree about Chandler: his attitude also seems good, no histrionics, etc.
