    Here's the article from NY Times. Since it is a paid subscription, I was able to get a copy from a blog:

    The author of that article either chosen to forget about NBA history, just ignore it or he has never taken the time to learn it.

    If you know anything at all about NBA history from its inception up until the time that Stern took over as Commish then you would better understand where Stern is coming from.

    I am not saying that that makes him correct in his attitude, but we get a lot further in life by trying to understand why a person is acting the way that they are rather than just dumping on their actions carte blanche.

    It would definitely be helpful. I moved to the US in 1992 and at that point started getting familiar with NBA since the information on US basketball was really scarse other than a few game scores here and there.

    I agree with article, where were these guys until now?

    Guys like that used to tell us to stop whining about the calls.

    Since it is a paid subscription, the article has been truncated.

    Wilt did not get tossed from the game nor fined or suspended for this.
