Tony Brown Death

The 55-year-old American had been suffering from pancreatic cancer since last year.

American referee Tony Brown, who divided his nearly two-decade career between the NBA and the Baloncesto Superior Nacional (BSN), died on Thursday due to pancreatic cancer.

The news was given on social networks by the retired Puerto Rican referee Juan “Pucho” Figueroa, who coincided with Brown in the local tournament and they became great friends.

“He was convalescing from a terminal illness. She was undergoing treatments for a given time for almost a year. Last two months she did not have a good time. She fell into the hospital and unfortunately passed away,” Figueroa told El Nuevo Día.

Figueroa received the news from his counterpart José Aníbal Carrión. Officer Joselo Quiñones, also close to Brown, visited the American a week ago in Atlanta, Georgia, where he found him in critical condition.

“He was a great friend. Usually, I don’t write on social media but I had to say this,” Figueroa said.

Brown during 19 seasons in the NBA for a total of 1,016 regular games and 25 postseason games. He worked 35 games of the 2021 season before the league announced his condition.

In 2020, during the “bubble” at Disney World, he made it official for the first time in the final between the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers. In an interview with El Nuevo Día on October 2 of that year, Brown thanked him for his time at the BSN to reach the finals.

“It means a lot because the BSN really helped me prepare to work in the NBA finals and, you know, working in Venezuela was a great training camp, but the BSN is what helped me prepare and become an evaluator of full plays. I’m 18 years old in the NBA, so it’s 18 in the BSN”, he expressed in the interview.

Figueroa attested to Brown’s professionalism and mettle during his time at the BSN.

“He became part of our family alongside Jack Nies, Ed Middleton, Ted Bernhardt, and Anthony Jordan. They were the ones who shared the most with us and were more in tune with the culture of Puerto Rico. Jack spends in Puerto Rico. He even bought a boat. Tony, just like the others, it was very good for them to work here. Middleton, may he rest in peace, told them that if you want to become referees, the first thing you have to do is make it official in Puerto Rico,” Brown recalled.

“Here it is a harder dynamic than in the NBA, the pressure of the fans. Brown handled the crowd in a different way than possibly other Americans who have whistled here. Very kind to the players, a gentleman. He knew how to lower the rude mood of the players with his words…with diplomacy. He had all the tools. He left the NBA due to illness if he wasn’t making it official yet. He was a fully grown man. Life played a trick on him but you have to accept God’s destiny,” added Figueroa.

Retired BSN official Carlos Tarrats also highlighted Brown’s contribution to the Puerto Rican league.

“It was a school for the kids who were coming up. He knew how to harmonize the culture and philosophy of the NBA with that of FIBA, and that was very popular among the referees and the other members of the league. He was a brother to all of us and he never used the three letters (NBA) to look down on the referees here,” Tarrats said.
