The full statement:
I will miss Stuart Scott. Twenty years ago, Stu helped usher in a new way to talk about our favorite teams and the day’s best plays. For much of those twenty years, public service and campaigns have kept me from my family – but wherever I went, I could flip on the TV and Stu and his colleagues on SportsCenter were there. Over the years, he entertained us, and in the end, he inspired us – with courage and love. Michelle and I offer our thoughts and prayers to his family, friends, and colleagues.
Scott, who as a "SportsCenter" anchor was one of the sports network's most visible personalities, had battled cancer since 2007.
"When you die, that does not mean that you lose to cancer," Scott said during a speech at the ESPY awards last year. "You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and the manner in which you live. So live. Live. Fight like hell.”
