Chat Live With NBA Commissioner David Stern
Chat with NBA Commissioner David Stern on Tues. March 4.|
Mr. Stern's tenure has been marked by an intense commitment to social responsibility both in the United States and around the world. In 2005, the league launched NBA CARES, through which the NBA, its players and teams have committed to donating $100 million to charity, providing a million hours of hands-on service and creating 250 places where kids and families can live, learn or play. NBA CARES supports a host of community outreach initiatives including the league's award-winning Read to Achieve program, which encourages young people to develop a lifelong love of reading; The Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA program that helps young people develop the fundamentals of the game with a focus on sportsmanship and teamwork; and Basketball without Borders, an initiative designed to bring international communities together through grassroots basketball and community building efforts. Through NBA CARES, the league also works with internationally-recognized youth-serving programs that support education, youth and family development, and health-related causes. The NBA and its players have also supported, among other causes, volunteerism, child abuse prevention, drug abuse prevention, hunger relief, HIV/AIDS awareness and the Special Olympics.
Commissioner Stern is in Portland visiting the Trail Blazers and is scheduled to chat live online with fans at around 2:45 p.m. PT (5:45 pm ET) on Tuesday, March 4. Post your questions now and come back for the live chat.
