Former NBA Commissioner David Stern, who is credited with dramatically overhauling and expanding the national sports league while serving as its longest-tenured commissioner, has died, according to the NBA. He was 77.
Had the pleasure of dealing with him when he was #nba commissioner. He had a great, inclusive, easy-to-approach manner about him. And no one is more responsible for the world wide growth and popularity of the league than David Stern.
