Well "backfires" is an interesting comment. Twitter was buzzing last night about a November NBA game. Today it was discussed in my office a bit. Stern even had me, a fan of a rivaling Western Conference team, rooting for the Spurs.
Maybe, just maybe, he knew what he was doing. I don't know. I do know that this is the most attention the NBA has gotten in November from casual NBA/sports fans in a long time.
