WHO'S HOT?

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling: Since becoming owner in 1981, he has built the biggest laughingstock franchise in NBA history. The Clippers have just four playoff appearances all-time and only once have survived the opening round. But the laughing figures to stop pronto, with the offseason acquisitions of Chris Paul, Chauncey Billups and Caron Butler, plus the re-signing of DeAndre Jordan.


WHO'S NOT?

NBA Commissioner David Stern: The new collective bargaining agreement was supposed to be Stern's goodbye gift to the league, a crowning achievement to his 27-year reign as commish and 45 years with the league. Not a very realistic expectation because no CBA has ever made both sides happy. Sure would be nice for Thunder fans to go above and beyond and show Stern some love at the Thunder-Orlando game.
