Stern: Silver worthy successor as NBA commissioner

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — David Stern will reveal only two things about his future as NBA commissioner.

He’ll be retired within five years, and he hopes Adam Silver replaces him.

Stern endorsed Silver for the job on Saturday, calling the deputy commissioner and 20-year employee of the NBA a “first-rate, top of the class executive.”

“I guess I would say that one of the things that a good CEO does, and I try to be a good CEO, is provide his board with a spectacular choice for its successor, and I think I’ve done that, and that’s Adam,” Stern said, with Silver sitting at a table to his right.
