David Stern has seen his power to cloud men's minds diminish relative to that of Roger Goodell lately, so you have to admire his new self-granted medical degree.
Or maybe you didn't see his dismissal of the compressed schedule as a potential cause for the number of injuries in the NBA this season, and citing as his source a doctor the NBA pays as a consultant.
I mean, the New England Journal of Medicine has never used the, "We say so because a guy we're paying to say so says so" dodge.
Now maybe the injuries that dropped Derrick Rose and Imani Shumpert, both ACL tears, were not caused by fatigue from fewer days off in this truncated season. We don't know that. Nobody knows that.
