|David Stern : Dwight Saga Is Like A "Soap Opera"|
The on-going saga that is Dwight Howard's situation in Orlando has become like an everchanging screenplay, from rescinded trade demands to threats of not signing long-term extensions, we've heard, and seen, it all over the past few months. One might say it has become a "soap opera," and that includes the NBA Commissioner, David Stern. He says that good or bad, fans are engaging in the Howard story.
“To me, it is the soap opera our fans turn in for — the drama on the court and the drama off the court,” Stern said, according to the newspaper. “When we cease to have a story popping up, we probably won’t exist.
“I think what it is, is that that’s the way we are. That’s the way it has been in baseball and the NFL and hockey and basketball. And frankly, it engages our fans, it engages our reporters, it engages our bloggers. It makes people happy, mad, sad. It’s just the life in sports.”
Couldn't have said it better ourselves.
