The NBA’s Ex-Commissioner, From Thimphu to Tim Duncan (Podcast)

Former National Basketball Association commissioner David Stern joins Scott Soshnick, Michael Barr and Eben Novy-Williams to discuss his 30 years leading the NBA, including lessons learned from a trip to Thimphu, Bhutan, and the sport’s rapid growth in the past few decades. Stern also talks about the stars of today’s NBA, and why he thinks quarterback-turned-activist Colin Kaepernick would still have a job if he played in the NBA instead of the NFL. The group also discusses legal sports gambling, its pending impact on franchise valuations and Stern’s current gig as a tech investor and adviser.
