Monday, David Stern appeard on the "Colbert Report" and in his infinite David Stern-ness, was extremely clever while being at the same time being extremely serious. Nobody balances that line better than Stern.
Stern didn't make a joke out of the interview, instead answering Colbert's question honestly. Which is one thing I love about Stern. He's pretty straightforward. For example, Colbert asked him what the most popular sport in America was and even tried to finish Stern's sentence with the NBA. But Stern was truthful, saying it's football.
I was really hoping Colbert would hammer Stern good on lockout questions, but it was really something that was glossed over. Probably largely because Colbert didn't necessarily know that much about it and didn't have a good idea how to follow up. Anyway, fun to see Stern on there and if I'm giving him a grade, I'd say he gets a B-plus.
