David Stern, Former NBA Commissioner, Passed Away at 77

Stern always had a plan B (lawyer) in case his passion to basketball won’t yield a job in the NBA.

He never used that plan B.

Stern served as the NBA commissioner for 30 years and turned the league. From a league which was known for its drug addicts and unprofitable games to a league that worth Billions of dollars.

Michael Jordan said –

“Without David Stern, the NBA would not be what it is today, he guided the league through turbulent times and grew the league into an international phenomenon, creating opportunities that few could have imagined before.”

David suffered a brain hemorrhage in mid-December and underwent emergency surgery.

The NBAPA announced –

“The entire basketball community is heartbroken. David Stern earned and deserved inclusion in our land of giants.”

Stern was the commissioner of the NBA from Feb 1st, 1984 until 2014. Under his control the NBA became a $5 billion industry per year.

The current NBA commissioner, Adam Silver said – “Because of David, the NBA is a truly global brand — making him not only one of the greatest sports commissioners of all time, but also one of the most influential business leaders of his generation. Every member of the NBA family is the beneficiary of David’s vision, generosity and inspiration.”

How can You Fulfill Your New Year’s Resolution?

It’s the same story every year, right?

Every year, on December 31st,  you have a list of all the things you want to do in the next year, and most of the times it’s the same things – exercise more, read more, eat healthy, find your dream job, spend more time with your family or even find the love of your life. But in reality, you can’t really keep up with all the promises you wished for yourself.

So how can you achieve more in the next year alone and even in the next decade?

We got a list of small simple actions you can take in order to maximize your chances of sticking with your new habit –  

  • Set your goals the right way – it all starts here; you have to set your goals high enough for them to motivate you and get you excited but keep it somewhat real. Be specific as possible.
    • Good – Train 3 times a week on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.
    • Bad– Train 6 days a week.
  • Visualize your dreams daily – take yourself 10 minutes a day to visualize your future self. Focus on how it feels after you achieved all your goals, and again – be as specific as possible.
  • Make commitment for yourself to do whatever needed and find people to keep you accountable for your actions. Publish your goals on social media – it will be much harder to give up after you announced it online.
  • Find a mentor and model his actions – look for someone who is where you want to be in the next few years, reverse engineer his steps until you got a plan in your hand.
  • Surround yourself with the right people – cut out toxic people who gossip all the time and find people who has big goals – you will push each other to get out the best of you.

One of James Bond’s producers Barbara Broccoli said to Entertainment Weekly:

“We’re really super excited by it. We always start off these movies saying two things. ‘What is Bond’s emotional journey throughout the film?’ And we’ve really thrown the book at it on this one. And the other is: ‘What is he up against in terms of the villain, and the villainy, and what’s happening in the world?’ And I think on both counts we’ve really pushed the boat out.”

New Drama Featuring Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx – “Just Mercy”

Warner Bros. released a trailer for their new drama featuring Jamie Foxx, Michael B. Jordan and Brie Larsen – “Just Mercy”. Based on a true story of Walter McMillian who was convicted falsely on Alabama’s death row.

This drama, “Just Mecry”, will be released on Jan 10th, 2020 worldwide and was premiered in September at Toronto International Film Festival. Destin Daniel Cretton directed the film and Andrew Lanham wrote the script.

Short summary of the movie – Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan) is a defense attorney who tries to defend Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx) in his death trial.

More of the cast members – Tim Blake Nelson, Karan Kendrick , Rob Morgan, O’shea Jackson Jr. and Rafe Spall.

Warner Bros. brief summary: “A powerful and thought-provoking true story, “Just Mercy” follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson). One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx), who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds — and the system — stacked against them.”
