Earlier today, former NBA Commissioner David Stern was rushed to the hospital after suffering a brain hemorrhage at a restaurant in Manhattan, NY.
First and foremost, thoughts and prayers to David and the Stern family. Just horrible news. Secondly, I think new NBA fans forget how much of an impact David Stern had in developing the NBA into the powerhouse it is today. From the time he took over to the time he resigned from his position, Stern saw the league grow from 10 to 30 franchises, expand to Canada, the creation of the WNBA, and reached multiple tv deals to bring NBA basketball into the homes of fans around the world, not just North America.
Stern has done so much for the sport of basketball. Let’s hope he can pull through this unfortunate news.
