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.
Obviously the Nets Pistons games was not the best game I have ever seen, but it was damn freaking high up on my list. As far as the playoffs go, I would say it is one of the best games I have watched in a very long time.
