You could apply this quote to half the teams in the NBA right now (Lakers, T-Wolves, Magic), but you're right. It takes a special kind of ineptness to get called out personally by the Commish. Of course, you can hardly blame the guy for lashing out, considering he had to hear about Zeke's sexual harassment suit while he was in the middle of dealing with the Tim Donaghy scandal.
Last year Oklahoma was a No. 1 seed in the NCAA. This year, they will go to the NIT after having a wretched season. I wonder if there are any facts out there on how often a team that was a No. 1 did not even make the tournament the next year.
