NBA Commissioner David Stern is spending the final hours of his 30-year tenure the way one might have expected. The party is on. The private celebration Tuesday night in Manhattan was attended by past and present league executives and owners who are closest to the Commissioner.

The speakers included the following: USA Basketball chairman and former Phoenix Suns president Jerry Colangelo; Val Ackerman, the original executive director of the WNBA and current commissioner of the Big East; NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman; Golden State Warriors president Rick Welts; and Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver, who succeeds Stern on Feb. 1.
