Stern: This NBA season may be 1 ‘of the greatest’

NBA Commissioner David Stern says anticipation surrounding the

Miami Heat is one reason why he expects fans may see ”some of the

greatest basketball ever played” this season.

Speaking Thursday before the reigning NBA champion Los Angeles

Lakers played Euroleague champion Regal FC Barcelona, Stern was

asked if Miami getting LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to

play together on what’s expected to be a title contender would make

the Heat ”bad guys” in the league.

Stern says, ”We’re going to have, really, our most successful

season. I don’t think it’s good guys and bad guys. I think you’re

going to be getting to see some of the greatest basketball ever

played.”

He added that it’s ”very interesting and exciting” to see how

James, Wade and Bosh teamed up.
