Morning Pixels: Panel discussion with David Stern

December 20, 2012

On Jan. 10, the Smithsonian Associates will be hosting a panel discussion featuring NBA Commissioner David Stern. From the release:

In a lively and insightful panel discussion moderated by Phil Hochberg, veteran Washington stadium announcer, Stern discusses the current state of professional basketball; the increase in foreign stars in the NBA; and some of the controversies such as the control of the New Orleans franchise and age limits on NBA players in future Olympics.

The panel will also include Michael Lee, Mike Wise and Wolf Blitzer, so it should be an interesting discussion. Maybe Wise will sing. 

The event is at the National Museum of the American Indian and Post readers get a discounted ticket here with the promo code 191678. I’m a little disappointed the promo code isn’t didthewizwinlastnight.

 

BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER

* Maryland basketball teams find a source of strength in performance coach Kyle Tarp.

* RGIII says he’s ready to play whenever he’s asked to. 

* Jason Reid says Kirk Cousins is not the type of guy you trade

* Wizards lost.

 

TWEET OF THE NIGHT

 

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT

Robert Griffin III, on not resenting coaches for sidelining him:

“There’s no strained relationship. What they’re going to tell me is they did the best thing for me. But as a player, I’m not going to say sitting out a game is the best thing for me. That’s just not how you operate or how you think.”

FASHION STATEMENT OF THE DAY

RGIII was fined again for wearing adidas, and not Nike, to a postgame news conference. Perhaps adidas worked enough money in his contract to cover a couple of $10k slaps from the league. 

 

LARON LANDRY UPDATE OF THE DAY

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, Landry’s offseason plans are to “Head back to Arizona, do my work, get big as f— get fast as f—, get strong as f—.” Good plan, bro.
