Emma was a Duke University basketball team captain in 1983 and was drafted by the Chicago Bulls.
The Daily News says he was also a high school star in Manhasset, on Long Island, and wrote a book titled “Basketball Player’s Comprehensive Guide to Strength Training.”
He was president of Power Performance, Inc., a company devoted to training young athletes.
The New York City medical examiner will determine the cause of his death.
