David Stern announces his final draft pick, 900th in his career (VIDEO)
30 draft picks each year, for the last 30 years. The very first draft pick he announced, Hakeem Olajuwon in 1984, visits for the farewell. Great moment with both boos and applause.
It wasn’t a joke when Stern said that Hakeem wore the same tuxedo in 1984. It’s a marvel how he could still fit in that. Shaq and Chuck have no chance in hell.
David Stern has seen the greatest players come and go, and has seen the NBA as big as it has ever been. A somewhat fitting farewell.
