I know, I know. Vinny Mac is not really the NBA commissioner; David Stern is. So, before people get up in arms and leave comments, I'll get that out of the way right now.
Well, they have never been seen in the same place together. Actually, he may be better for the job than Stern when you really think about it.
Everyone has seen the NBA playoffs over the last few years and has scratched their heads wondering if what they are seeing is fixed or not. Stern continues to deny any wrong doing but offers no real explanation for strange situations that keep coming up year after year.
Stern continues to label Tim Donaghy as a "lone criminal" and a "rogue official." Buy how does he know that's really true? What investigations have taken place? Where is the paper trail leading only to Donaghy?
There is none.
That is why the NBA needs Vinny Mac to take charge. He has done wonders for regulating wrestling. He was the first promoter to admit that outcomes of matches were predetermined, just like the NBA playoffs. Something most people already knew. He should take over the NBA and tell us all the same thing.
The way I see it the only real difference between McMahon and Stern is that McMahon actually admits that his sport is entertainment, not a true sporting event. Just like the NBA playoffs.
Think of the possibilities. Shaq and Kobe in a flaming free throw line match or Bruce Bowen fake kicking people in the groin. This could be priceless. Not to mention that no one would really be that disappointed when their team "loses" because you knew it was going to happen anyway (you just did not know how it was going to happen).
Just like the NBA playoffs.
