For Immediate Release:
STATEMENT OF NBPA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR WILLIAM HUNTER REGARDING THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT NBA COMMISSIONER DAVID STERN IS STEPPING DOWN
NEW YORK, NY, October 25 - "There is no debate that David Stern has earned his spot in the pantheon of sports Commissioners. Deservedly, his name and reputation will always be synonymous with the phenomenal growth and success of the NBA over the last three decades. His absence will surely be felt by anyone connected to the NBA and the sport of basketball. although clearly the league will be left in very capable hands with the appointment of Adam Silver as the next Commissioner."
