What's a Poor Man's Commish?

We are the anti-thesis of David Stern.

He oversees one league of thirty-plus teams consisting of elite, privileged, wealthy athletes who play basketball for a living. We oversee dozens of leagues spanning hundreds of teams consisting of Average Joes -- and Janes -- who wish they could play basketball for a living.

His yearly salary is a reported $25 million. Ours is roughly $1/25-millionth (i.e., zero).

We all know what life is like for Superman, but don't you ever wonder what a day in the life is like for Bizarro?

The basketball world through the eyes of Bizarro Stern, in which we might be considered indulgent, placable and undemanding, or even friendly or genial.

Strangely, sometimes we're more alike than we are different.

That's what the Poor Man's Commish is all about.
