Video: David Stern embraces boos during final draft
Thursday's NBA Draft marked the 30th and final in David Stern's tenure as NBA Commissioner.
And it will certainly go down as memorable in more ways than just being Stern's last draft as the league's head man.
It offered a shocking first overall pick, a countless number of trades, and a heavy contingent of boos, among others.
The act of booing Stern at the NBA Draft has become a tradition of sorts over the past few years. And the 2013 edition was no different.
The video clip above shows a montage of Stern being booed throughout the evening. As you can see, Stern really soaked in the atmosphere, even encouraging the fans to boo louder at regular intervals.
At one point, he even had to jokingly explain to the television audience that the "boo is an American sign of respect."
