New York, New York --Former NBA Commissioner David Stern has had emergency surgery after suffering a brain hemorrhage while having lunch not far from league headquarters. The league had no update on his condition Friday.
The 77-year-old Stern was stricken a day earlier at a midtown Manhattan restaurant. Support for Stern has come from all across basketball. Stern served exactly 30 years as the NBA's longest-tenured commissioner. Adam Silver replaced him in 2014. Stern has remained affiliated with the league with the title of commissioner emeritus.
