Behind the Scenes with NBA Commissioner David Stern

NBA Commissioner David Stern

NBA Commissioner David Stern has revolutionized the game of basketball... without so much as a dribble, dunk or three-pointer. Since succeeding Larry O'Brien as the NBA's top exec in 1984, Stern has arguably done more for the game than Bird & Magic, MJ or Kobe and Shaq. Thursday night, you're invited to a conversation with Stern, CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer and The Washington Post's Michael Lee & Mike Wise. Famed local announcer Phil Hochberg will moderate the panel.

The discussion gets underway Thursday night, 7:30 PM January 10th at the National Museum of the American Indian's Rasmuson Theater. Tickets are still available for $25 (Smithsonian Members get in for $20) and can be purchased online (click here.) Thursday's event is brought to you by The Smithsonian Associates.
