NBA commissioner Adam Silver, whose statement over the weekend defending LeBron James from comments made by President Donald Trump didn’t mention the president’s name, was one of many friends of Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, whose unflattering stories were deleted from the New York Observer, which Kushner owned until 2017.
