R.I.P. Ted Stepien

Imagine that when you die the The New York Times runs your obituary. Now imagine in the first sentence of that obituary they trumpet your biggest public failing. Ladies and gentlemen I give you the obituary of former Cleveland Cavaliers owner Ted Stepien. First sentence:

Ted Stepien, the former owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, whose propensity for trading away draft picks resulted in an N.B.A. rule change, died Monday at his home in Willoughby Hills. He was 82.

Marc, I've been thinking about this for two days and I'm having a hard time coming up with anything. Maybe something along the lines of, "David Kennedy, slow-witted Utah Jazz fan, died Monday in his home in Willoughby Hills. He was 82."
