NBA commissioner David Stern joined the show to talk about state of the League as the postseason begins.

Stern explained why it would be hard to shorten the season. He said they plan for 41 games to fill arenas and air something on TV, and they’d drastically reduce income if they went that direction.

Dan asked Stern about the Spurs sitting their stars. He said one of the reasons they’re so good is because they manage their stars’ minutes and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Stern also commented on Metta World Peace’s seven-game suspension. He said they considered it a serious penalty. “All things considered, seven was the right number,” Stern said.

Dan asked Stern if he learned anything from watching Roger Goodell at the NFL Draft and if he’ll change anything. “I’m too old for that,” Stern said. “I’m set in my ways. I’m into handshakes. I could do a knuckle bump or a high five. We’ll see how it goes.”
