NBA All-Star weekend hasn't lived up to its usual lofty expectations quite yet, but there was a brunch on Sunday morning that may have changed everything for the better. It wasn't really about anything on the basketball court, but NBRPA CEO Arnie Fielkow slipped up and said he'd like to spank NBA commissioner David Stern ... and everybody laughed.
Fielkow quickly corrected himself, saying he'd like to thank -- not spank -- the most powerful man in the NBA, but the damage was already done. The CEO of the National Basketball Retired Players Association had to pause his speech for laughter and, even through Fielkow was able to get through the rest of his speech without any other issues, TNT's Ernie Johnson couldn't keep from laughing during the follow-up.
Video of the incident, via Jose3030, is embedded below.
Man, it kind of makes me feel bad for Mr. Fielkow ... but then I just keep laughing at the thought of spanking Stern. Thanks for that ugly visual imagery, sir.
