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.
Before I forget, go read this year's SLAMMYS - the basketball ones, yeah - by the fine folks over at THE LINKS: http://slamonline.com/links/04182005/index.html The ABOVE link will change as the week goes on. You can find it.
