Jim Rome’s Interview with NBA Commish Turns Ugly

Things got testy Wednesday morning when nationally syndicated sports talk show host Jim Rome asked NBA commissioner David Stern if the league’s draft lottery is fixed.

(The NBA owns the New Orleans Hornets — the team that won the top overall pick in the draft.)

When Rome questioned Stern about a possible fix, the snarky commish snapped back with the rhetorical question, “Have you stopped beating your wife yet?”

Awkward pause.

Stern went on to take cheap shots at Rome’s professional career before eventually saying “he had to go call someone important like Stephen A. Smith now.”

Shots. Fired.
