"David Stern: 30 Years" will air at 7 p.m. ET. Stern will be interviewed by Turner Sports' Ernie Johnson during the hour-long program, which includes comments from former and current NBA players such as Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Jerry West, Charles Barkley, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.

He was scheduled to present the Top 10 list on the "Late Show with David Letterman" on Wednesday night and was to be honored during Thursday's game between the New York Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers at Madison Square Garden.
