Stern thinks Shaq will be better coach than Barkley at Rising Stars game

David Stern has never been afraid to ruffle a few feathers or stick a needle when he wanted to.

The NBA commissioner has inflamed the  Rising Stars Competition Feb. 24 in Orlando when he said that he thought that Shaquille O’Neal will be a better coach in the game between the league’s top rookies and second-year players than his fellow TNT commentator Charles Barkley.

“I can’t wait to critique Charles. Oh boy, I am on this, all over it, okay,” Stern told reporters. “I think that Shaq is going to be a better coach than Charles. And he was a better rebounder than Charles. I’ll even go to the question that he’s a better commentator than Charles … [but] that’s for after All-Star [Weekend].”

How come I feel like I’m in the middle of a WWE promotion?
