It was well played all around.

Of course the fans in Brooklyn welcomed David Stern to the podium with a chorus of boos to start the night — and over the course of the first round he played along and taunted them a little, saying he couldn’t hear them. But when it came time to make is final pick he got a respectful standing ovation from the crowd.

Then Stern introduced commissioner-in-waiting Adam Silver, and the crowd booed him.

Then Silver brought “The Dream” back out on the stage. Just well don all around.
