Stern

David Stern by far. Could've easily stopped the Sonics moving to OKC in a heartbeat. That's power.

David Stern After what went

David Stern

After what went down this NBA offseason WW Wes seems to hold the more power when it comes to amateurs (high school players)

I would add Sonny Vaccaro to the list as well

By default, David Stern has

By default, David Stern has the most power, but he doesn't exercise his power like NFL's Roger Goodell does.

Not sure if you mean the most

Not sure if you mean the most powerful man just as it pertains to basketball but of these guys if you are talking about most powerful in general Richard Lovett should be near the top if not the top. He transcends beyond sports and entertainment. Look at some of the most influential people he controls: LeBron James, Derek Jeter, David Beckham, Peyton Manning, Sidney Crosby, Christiano Ronaldo, Tony Hawk, Jimmie Johnson, Shaun White, Dwayne Wade, Georges St. Pierre just for sports but beyond that Oprah, Letterman, Seacrest, Cowell, Springstein, Mariah, Usher, Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Brad Pitt, Clooney, Bulluck, Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Steven Speilberg. His clients practically own the world. He has also has his hand with American Idol, high school musical, Glee, Lost, House, Hannah Montana, MSG, Yankee stadium, Pac-10, FC Barcelona.

I can't believe I forgot to

I can't believe I forgot to mention these guys earlier.

Derek Fisher and Billy Hunter

Billy Hunter is the executive head of the NBA's player's union and Derek Fisher is the president of the NBA players association. Those two men have a lot power. If they're not happy.....no season.
