NBA Betting Probe Weighs on Commissioner Stern; Teenage Slang Symptoms Apparent

This Tim Donaghy betting investigation has truly rocked the foundation of the NBA's integrity, and now it looks like NBA Commissioner David Stern is showing the effects of the FBI's probe and the relentless media coverage. Stern, usually polished and articulate, had this to say at a recent press conference (and though not technically incorrect, it still is pretty funny):

"I also understand [Donaghy] is the only referee alleged to have bet on NBA games and disclosed confidential information to others," Stern said, adding "Let me make it clear that's my current understanding."

"If that understanding changes tomorrow, I will so inform everybody," he added later.

No way! Commissioner Stern so did not go there! He is so busted! Peace out.
