According to my very exclusive sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, NBA commissioner David Stern received a phone call Friday morning from Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak, who complained that San Antonio Spurs general manager R.C. Buford made an inappropriate gesture.
Apparently, during a video conference call, Buford sat on the edge of his desk, grabbed his crotch and yelled, "Take that, Mee-yatch."
Of course, the only reason that Buford felt it necessary to make the call, my sources say, was because Buford himself received a similar call from Minnesota Timberwolves general manager Kevin McHale a few days ago, in which McHale labeled Buford and the rest of his championship ring-wielding front-office cronies "free agency chokers."
San Antonio was so desperate to make a fantastic move to keep up with the other SeaBiscuits that the Spurs did the deal with Sacramento. This is kind of like the U.S. providing weapons to Iraq 20 years ago so that Iraq could defeat Iran. Now, 20 years later, the U.S. uses those same weapons as an excuse for invasion.
