Rolling Stone quietly deletes article about domestic violence and the NBA

Rolling Stone quietly removed an online article about the NBA and domestic violence on Friday, two days after it was published, POLITICO has learned.

The piece, titled “Why Derrick Rose Rape Trial May Wreck NBA Commissioner Adam Silver’s Legacy” by weekly columnist Beejoli Shah, examined how league commissioner Adam Silver has disciplined different basketball players accused of domestic violence and specifically noted his silence regarding Derrick Rose, the New York Knicks star whose civil trial for alleged gang rape is currently underway.
