In relation to the new rule possibly being set forth by the NBA…

David Stern is caving in way we never would have predicted only a few years ago. Owners, players (see: Wade, Dwyane during the recent lockout) and now television executives have crowded him so far into a corner that the man who once berated NBA officials for revealing Darius Miles’ knee issues prior to the draft recently announced that he would be retiring in 2014, a notice the old david Stern would have kpet close to the vest at least until the end of this season.
