NBA Commissioner David Stern was on Jim Rome's talk show today when Rome asked him if the NBA Draft Lottery was fixed. Stern said "no" and then followed it up with "Have you stopped beating your wife?"
Well, the Internets are freaking out because everyone is saying Stern accused Rome of literally beating his wife. Heck, I think Rome even took it that way. I think we have some generational gap thing going on. I absolutely understood that Stern was saying "that's a loaded question just like if I were to ask 'have you stopped beating your wife'". I've heard that example for over twenty years. Maybe more. But so many people are taking it literally. Silly kids.
