Sorry for the terrible job with the cut and paste by me.  Adrian Wojnarowski added that Stern collapsed at the Brasserie 8.5 Restaurant in Manhattan today and was rushed to the hospital for the emergency surgery.

This is a guess, but I bet he's ventilator dependent and they'll try to wean him now.  if he sees 2020 itll be because his family doesnt pull the plug....

Grim reaper ain't messing around.  Barely the first day of 2020 and we already have a major celebrity death.   Although he wasn't a famous athlete, he was just as well known to sports fans as the likes of Michael Jordan and Larry Bird.  He served as commissioner to the NBA for 30 years and was seen as the one responsible for transforming the NBA into the global brand it is today.  
 

Sports fans are in mourning today.

Hudson County (FL) has lost a member of its basketball royalty.

Alice DeFazio, arguably the county first women’s star player, died on Feb. 25 in Florida. She was 63.

A three-time Hall of Famer — Jersey City, Hudson County and Montclair State University — DeFazio was a star at every level of competition. Among her many achievements was helping lead Montclair State to the women’s basketball Final 4 as the starting point guard.   Two years later, as a senior, DeFazio was the runner-up for the Wade Trophy — the annual award given to the best player in the nation.
