Weasely-ass ESPNBAvid $tern reversed his decision to waive the fine for LeBron’s press conference no-show after game 6. No huge surprise there, considering the avalanche of criticism he’s been receiving. It’s only $25K, after all.
After announcing the reversal, Stern then proceeded to apologize for his little brat:
“He asked that I express to the media, the Magic and the fans his apology, and particularly the young fans, because he knows he has a responsibility to all of our fans, and that sportsmanship is appropriate whether you win or whether you lose,” Stern said.
LeBron can’t just go on television and say he’s sorry?
Bad: Not immediately apologizing when you’ve been a huge jerk.
Worse: Refusing to apologize the following day after considering how big of a douche you’ve been.
Worser: Having your PR chump apologize for you.
The absolute fucking worst: Never apologizing. Having your daddy clean up the mess by inventing and issuing an apology for you.
What a joke. I think it’s pretty obvious that Stern simply invented this apology.
