A sad day for basketball in Israel and Europe. Danny Kesten, Chairman of the Israeli Basketball Federation, died tonight at the age of 65. Kesten didn't feel well, and called the emergency units, but when they arrived to his home it was already too late. Kesten collapsed and was already dead when the doctors broke into his home.

Kesten (65 years old) acted as Chariman of the Israeli Basketball Federation since 1992. In the last years, Kesten was also a much known and highly respected person in the European Basketball. In the last years, he built his way up in FIBA-Europe, where he acted as President of the Competitions Commission. Only a few days ago Kesten presented the Europeleague and its structure, as the new top club competition of FIBA-Europe.

May he rest in peace.
