And Another Thing



OK, so explain something to me.

("You say that a lot," you're sneering).

Explain to me how NBA commish David Stern can admit that flopping (at which the Miami Heat are particularly adept) is becoming a "concern" for his league, then turn around a fine Pacers coach Frank Vogel 15K for pointing out the same thing?

Stern's explanation was that Vogel was trying to work the refs prior to the start of the series. What he doesn't explain is why that's fine-able in this case but never was when Phil Jackson/Pat Riley/Jerry Sloan/any number of other coaches used to do it.
