NBA to review policies in wake of NFL woes


NEW YORK: NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) the league will review its policies on domestic violence, trying to head off the kind of crisis now facing the NFL. Silver, attending an event on Staten Island to announce a youth outreach program linked to the 2015 All Star Game at Madison Square Garden, said that the NBA learns “from other league’s experiences.” The NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell are facing a public relations nightmare over the handling of a spate of high-profile cases of off-field violence — starting with an initial two-game suspension of Ravens running back Ray Rice after he knocked his future wife unconscious in a casino elevator in February.
