Adam Silver has become the NBA's fifth commissioner, succeeding outgoing commissioner David Stern, who retired after exactly 30 years in charge. Silver joined the NBA as Stern's assistant in 1992 and has been the deputy commissioner since 2006.
He took the NBA around the globe in nearly three decades as commissioner, turning what was a second-rate league into a projected $5-billion-a-year industry.
