I wondered that when I read an AP story (found on SI.com) quoting Stern, in regard to the Seattle arena situation, as saying:
"I think it's just going to work itself out and I hope it does."Contrast that to Bennett's comments at the Sam Presti press conference (or as they call it in Canada, 'presser'):
"So we’re without a process that I’m aware of relative to public participation in a building."Add this into the whole Las Vegas debacle, when Bennett was called out on national television by Stern, and it leads you to believe that the commish may be slowly coming to the side of Seattle, leaving Bennett even more alone than he was before.
