NBA Commissioner Slams Sports World For Staying Silent On Russia And Gays

"I’m gonna behave myself, for the record here, which is unlike me. But you know, the first phone call to the new head of the Olympics was from President Putin, and everyone wants to talk about the Russian law on homosexuality. Think about the opportunities that sports have to make a continuing statement, and the only thing that we’re saying in that context is ‘Shhhh! No one say anything!’" - NBA Commissioner David Stern, speaking yesterday at the Beyond Sports Summit.
