This week NBA Sunday Social takes a look back on the life and legacy of former NBA commissioner David Stern

Straying away from the usual positive vibes of this column, this week’s edition of Sunday Social will mainly focus on the loss of former commissioner David Stern. Mr. Stern passed away due to complications from a Hemorrhagic stroke he suffered last month in an NYC restaurant.

The NBA world was taken back by the devastating loss. Stern was much more than the former commissioner. He was an innovator, pioneer, a business person, a husband, and a father. Stern is survived by his wife, Dianne Bock — the couple was married for 57 years  — and his two sons Eric A and Andrew Stern.
