Why do people hate him so much? I think that about 90% of the things that people hate him for were done at the behest of the ownwers. Those things would have occurred no matter who was the commish. Of the other 10%, remember that includes things like blocking that ridiculous Chris Paul trade, RIGHTFULLY suspending Stoudawhiner during the Spurs-Suns series, and being a constant thorn in the side of that a-hole on I-35 400 miles north of here. I think he's been pretty damn good for the NBA and especially the Spurs.
