Former Commissioner David Stern Undergoes Emergency Brain Surgery

Former NBA commissioner David Stern underwent surgery on Thursday afternoon in a New York City hospital after suffering a brain hemorrhage.

“NBA Commissioner Emeritus David Stern suffered a sudden brain hemorrhage earlier today for which he underwent emergency surgery,” the NBA said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with David and his family.”

As of Friday, the league had no update on the 77-year old’s condition.

Stern served as league commissioner from 1984 and 2014, and infamously vetoed a trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers. During his 30-year run, Stern helped push the league into international waters, and turn the sport into a global force. Under his regime, the league added seven franchises, while relocating six others.

Since stepping away from his post, Stern has invested in a number of technological companies and remains very present in the business sphere. He was replaced by Adam Silver as commissioner of the league in 2014.

Prayers up for the former commissioner.
