    I'd vote for Sheed. He'll take care of refs pretty quickly.

    Michael Curry, Lindsey Hunter, Dennis Rodman, the list of former Pistons is long.

    Isn't John Salley the Commissioner of the ABA? Sounds like he's already in an apprenticeship position.

    Chancey as player/ commissioner.

    He's just have to sign some sort of conflict of interest waiver.

    Given how he performed in the playoffs last year, I don't think anyone will think he has an opinion about who should win. Where's the conflict?

    Well, it would be awkward when he'd have to decide on suspensions for Sheed. On one hand, he would want a 6'11" 3-point specialist on the floor at all times, and on the other hand, he would have the responsibility to hold all players to the same standards.

    Mark Cuban would be an amazing commissioner, but too many of the old guard ownership dislikes his style. They are a boys club, dedicated to the tried and true imperialistic approach to sports franchise ownership.

    We should really stick with Stern and see what he can do going forward. I think after this scandal, he'll come back really motivated to get the job done. Especially since there is no clear cut answer for who you could get to replace him. If you're gonna can Stern, who are you gonna get? Who else is out there?

    He's a cowboy, so he'd probably want to see the Texas teams do well.

    Remember that time George Blaha interviewed Kid Rock? Kid Rock was obviously high and he asked George if he wanted to light one up? I'd vote for him just on that alone.

    I'm sure he meant a cigar.
