This petition is made to start the movement to remove David Stern as NBA Commisioner for gross mismanagement and acting against the best interests of the league, players, and fans. This is made to stop a man who, by the admission of executives in his own league, is 'drunk with power.'
The NBA is a fantastic league with wonderful fans; after one of the worst things a sports-fan can endure (a long drawn-out lockout, which, coincidently, is another example of Mr. Stern's gross mismanagement) we are tired and need to be convinced again why we love this sport and to see it improve to something even better than before. Actions like what took place on Thursday, December 7th, 2011 when Mr. Stern went against his own earlier words to not interfere and vetoed a trade proposal made between teams/owners in good faith destroys fans' goodwill and confidence in his stewardship of a league we love. This must be stopped, now.
