Commissioner is a title far too limiting for David Stern. He has been part comedian, part dictator, part visionary, part man on a mission, and there's nothing Ron Artest's fists, Gilbert Arenas' guns or Allen Iverson's wardrobe could possibly do to stop him. In his 30 years as the NBA's top boss, which will end with his Feb. 1 retirement, Stern has shown he almost always knows what he's doing. One of his first acts as commissioner in the summer of 1984 was to try to terminate the Clippers' franchise after it moved from San Diego to Los Angeles without league approval.

NBA Commissioner David Stern and sports talk personality Jim Rome got into a heated exchange Wednesday on Rome's nationally syndicated radio show after a question regarding the integrity of the NBA draft lottery.

Betfair Hollywood Park had its last big day of racing Saturday, and Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer had a big day. His 2-year-old, Shared Belief, owned in part by television personality Jim Rome, won the 33rd and final chapter of the CashCall Futurity, a $750,000 race that annually establishes at least one top prospect for the Kentucky Derby. It was the final chapter because its home, Hollywood Park, will close its doors after racing next Sunday. A real estate development is projected to replace the legendary Inglewood racing facility.

Former Ram quarterback Jim Everett, upset by comments made by ESPN2 talk show host Jim Rome during a live interview Wednesday night, attacked Rome in the network's Hollywood studio. Everett became upset when Rome repeatedly called him "Chris Evert," a reference to the female tennis star and Everett's questionable courage to take a hit, during an interview on "Talk 2." Everett shoved a table between them away and knocked Rome backward off his chair. Everett then jumped on Rome.

"My hair is on fire right now," says Jim Rome as he hustles around his squat radio booth. "If you could get inside my head right now and see what's going on, you wouldn't believe it. This interview, that interview, the TV show. This is crazy. Even by my standards." And by Jim Rome's standards, it has to get more than crazy. He doesn't oversee an asylum, however. Rome is gamekeeper of "The Jungle," an ever-expanding, multimedia environment filled with sports talk.

Kobe Bryant did not hesitate when asked how he would have reacted if a coach like Rutgers' Mike Rice was being abusive and throwing basketballs at him during practice. "I would have smacked the hell out of him, no question about it," Bryant said in an interview for Jim Rome on Showtime, which airs Wednesday night at 9 Eastern and Pacific times. "It probably wouldn't have been the best way to react to it," Bryant added, "but that's probably how I would have reacted. " Rome mentioned that when the video of Rice pushing and shoving his players surfaced last week, eventually leading to his firing, the All-Star guard tweeted, "That's not coaching, that's a power trip.

The black eye Jim Everett had targeted for Jim Rome's face during a talk-show confrontation last week missed, regrettably, landing instead on the already swollen face of journalism. The proliferation of tabloid talk has so blurred the lines of the legitimate and the fringe as to raise rightful concerns about the meandering boundaries of the First Amendment.

On a fall Sunday early last decade, a young reporter living in Berlin wanted to follow a regular-season NFL game being played by his favorite team. But he had few means to do so. The closest American-themed sports bar was 20 miles away. An online written account would offer only scant details and hardly in real time. Television wasn't an option; the lone European sports network was four hours into a Formula One marathon. The reporter hit upon a solution: He called a family member in the U.S. and asked him to turn on a radio play-by-play call.
