    You think too much. ;)

    It was good radio, the back-and-forth between the two of them today.

    Whether he called him "Mr. Commissioner" or not.

    Patrick was on The Pulse and Gottleib asked him about the Commish's tone. Patrick said it was condescending and sarcastic.

    He also said he's known Stern for 24 years. Called himself a "mouthpiece for the NBA" because he covers it for ESPN/ABC. Said he felt it took 7-8 minutes for Stern to finally admit that the rule sucks or at least needs to be changed.

    It was a much tougher interview than the one on PTI. And Stern is one of those pricks that you just can't argue with. He's always right in his mind and any slip-up by you he throws back in your face. He's the type of guy that'd get popped in a barroom frequenlty. Although he probably just orders a private bar to be constructed out of gold in any city he is in so he doesn't have to worry about things like that.

    You're right, Boobie. There were 3-4 times this afternoon that he took the same condescending posture with Patrick, like, "Oh, yes, let's do it your way and see how THAT works."

    Yes and when he's on PTI to promote some global expansion he turns on the charm and his dry wit and everyone loves him. But when he's on about a tough topic like this or Joey Crawford he speaks in the tone usually reserved for a funeral (when he's not on the offensive) and gives one word answers in a real prickish way.
