Well, this is pretty awkward. NBA Commissioner David Stern just made the worst mix up of his career during the Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat game in Miami tonight.

In an attempt to show solidarity with the millions of Americans struggling in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Stern wanted to show that his thoughts were with them.

The only problem is that he named the wrong hurricane when he spoke.

“Before we begin, I know that everyone here and around America watching has in their thoughts and in their abiding concerns those who were affected by Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. That said, we have a celebration tonight.”

Sir, Hurricane Katrina was in 2005. Get your facts right.

Sheesh, if he’s mixing up the names of natural disasters, we can only imagine the awful job he does in keeping the names of his NBA groupies in order.
