NBA commissioner Adam Silver spends most of his public appearances being very critical as he discusses league enterprise. Often he’s being requested about issues like bigger plans for the longer term (like the in-season tournament or enlargement) or how the NBA is dealing with a fragile scenario, just like the investigation into Ja Morant‘s newest video holding a gun on Instagram Live.
As such, there aren’t a number of alternatives for him to indicate off a humorousness, however he couldn’t assist however make a sly little joke whereas ending an interview with Dan Patrick on Thursday. As they talked about gamers carrying the ball and Adam Sandler, Patrick joked he would get the Sandman to do a PSA for an Anti-Carrying Program for the NBA. That opened the door for Silver to make a refined crack about how an “Anti-Carrying Program” might maintain a double that means, seemingly referencing the continued saga with Morant.
It’s form of jarring to see Silver let this one fly given he sometimes stays buttoned up, however Patrick appeared to be proper on it and understood he was referring to Morant. I additionally suppose that is much less him making gentle of the scenario and extra expressing somewhat exasperation that that is the second time Morant has discovered himself on this spot, however I even have little doubt there can be some who’re upset with the comment.
