Borislav Stankovic, the FIBA Secretary-General Emeritus, died at the age of 94. He served as FIBA's second Secretary General from 1976 to 2002 and was a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). He had been FIBA's Secretary General Emeritus since 2003.

During his time at the helm of FIBA, he is credited with countless achievements, the most significant of which was working closely with the former NBA Commissioner David Stern in the late 1980s-early 1990s to bring world basketball into the modern era. This resulted in having, for the first time ever, professional players participate in top-level national team competitions (Olympic Games, FIBA Basketball World Cup), starting at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992.
