David Stern Officially Retires as NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver In

After 30 years to the day, David Stern has retired as the NBA’s commissioner. His tenure was the longest serving and arguably most successful of any in major sports.

Adam Silver has officially been named the league’s fifth commissioner.

While most Laker fans will continue to view David Stern’s tenure in a negative light, due to the Chris Paul fiasco — no commissioner has played a bigger role in a league’s growth and expansion than him.
