Some years go, David Stern defeated Donald Trump in a tennis match — a scene that would almost certainly go viral if the images existed today. But in an exclusive video, NUNYO & COMPANY has recreated the memorable tennis match between the future president of the U.S. and the then NBA Commissioner. Although details remain sketchy, an investigation reveals that the victory occurred in a doubles matchup among heavy hitters: David Stern and Bob Tisch (co-owner of the New York Giants) versus Trump and John Veronis (a prominent media dealmaker). Did Trump end up taking a knee? 🤔😶
Regardless, the most telling aspect of the affair occurred in the weeks and months that followed: Trump pestered Stern for a rematch — but never got it. Trump’s reaction — his competitiveness and ego — provides insight into the president, and perhaps the future of our great nation. Okay, that last part is probably hyperbole; it’s best to leave any exaggerations to the caricatures in story.
Warning to some residents of Seattle and L.A., those so-called liberal strongholds: watching Stern defeat Trump may elicit deeply conflicting emotions. Lakers and Sonics fans understand exactly what this means🙃.
Anyhoo, the following isn’t an overstatement: "David Stern vs. Donald Trump in Tennis" includes artwork of a fascinating half-court basketball game from 1967: Arthur Ashe and Bobby Knight versus Bill Parcells and Norman Schwarzkopf — with the future Coach K nearby. Stern’s anecdote evoked the fascinating scene in the Parcells book: Those legends-in-the-making were all members of West Point at the same time — and often competed in half-court hoops. What a sight!😶👁
