STERN LIGHTENS UP ON POSSIBLE LEAFS/RAPTORS PARTNERSHIP
Published November 20, 1997
NBA Commissioner David Stern said yesterday that the NBA "would do a lot to make it happen" if the Maple Leafs decide to move into the Air Canada Centre with the Raptors, according to Bill Harris of the TORONTO SUN. Stern: "In principle, if it's better for the city to have two franchises in one building, we're all for it." Harris: "This is a far cry from the combative Stern who attacked the Leafs a little more than a year ago." Now Stern said any possible deal is "not an issue for us. We made a commitment to have a building in Toronto" (TORONTO SUN, 11/20).
