The following statement was issued by NBA Commissioner David Stern in regard to Rasheed Wallace's recent public comments: "Mr. Wallace’s hateful diatribe was ignorant and offensive to all NBA players. I refuse to enhance his heightened sense of deprivation by publicly debating with him. Since Mr. Wallace did not direct his comments at any particular individuals other than me, I think it best to leave it to the Trail Blazers organization -– and its players and fans -– to determine the attitudes by which they wish to be defined."
This is kinda a strange thing, though. Say Baker plays through the rest of the season with the Knicks, and then he wins his arbitration hearing and his Celtics contract is re-instated. He just goes back to the Celtics, just like that?
