many of you who read this know my friend, dan. we played basketball together in san fran & became great friends. after graduating from HBS, dan got a job at the NBA. at first, doing CRM work specifically dedicated to retaining season ticket holders and acquiring new ones. he then got a promotion that had him liaising with 9 teams across the league on a number of marketing and operations issues. his dream job. well, last week, he got called into David Stern's office - and offered a new job. David asked Dan to be the PRESIDENT of the NBDL, the development league that primes players to get to the NBA (like the minor leagues in Baseball). this is an awesome opportunity for him. i am so happy to see such a good friend succeed.
