NEW YORK (AP) - NBA TV will televise an interview with David Stern on Friday night, the day before he ends his 30-year run as NBA commissioner.

David Stern: 30 Years” will air at 7 p.m. EST. 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.

It’s part of a busy few days of tributes for Stern, who is leaving exactly 30 years after becoming the league’s fourth commissioner on Feb. 1, 1984. 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.
