When Adam Silver was announced as the successor to long-time NBA Commissioner David Stern, we all believed that we were getting a Stern disciple who would follow in the former commissioner's footsteps. Boy, were we wrong. He actually is tuning out to be better than his predecessor. Here are five reasons why I think he is a much better commissioner than Stern.
While former commissioner Stern loathed having his picture taken, Silver welcomes the sports paparazzi. He does not turn down an opportunity to take a photo, which leads us to...
Stern was never one to mingle with NBA fans, but Silver has taken a new approach to make himself available to the fans who pay the outrageous ticket prices to see their favorite team play.
Stern was clearly getting on the players nerves, but Silver is taking the steps to rebuild the relationship between the players and the commissioner's office.
Even though Stern got all the praise for keeping the Kings in California's capital, Silver played a huge part in influencing Stern to allow local buyers to purchase the team.
When Silver was faced with his first crisis as the commissioner with the Donald Sterling incident, Silver did a masterful job in taking a stand against racism and owners who condone racism owning NBA teams.
