"Highlights": This is a special episode that highlights 5 different episodes with examples of the variety of topics that we go through on this podcast! It starts with problem-solving within an executive group in the NBA Player's Association team and how they approach problems that players have to deal with throughout the season. This was episode #23 with Matteo Zuretti that was recorded in New York at the NBPA headquarters. The next highlight is a clip from my conversation with Coach Andrej Lemanis and his wide ranging experiences with culture-building. He talked about his authentic style of coaching and how he tries to get his message across to the players by giving them ownership and staying humble. One of my biggest highlights was from a very special episode with David Blatt, which was EP#35. In this short clip he talked about his view on the importance of 'Cultural Competency' when coaching in different environments and getting to know the nuances of each culture in order to connect better. Furthermore, I've added a highlight from a very recent conversation with one of the most successful Executives, Maurizio Gherardini. This clip is from EP#36 where he talked about the importance of constant communication with the Head Coach in order to find the right path together. The final highlight-clip is from my biggest and most important episode (EP#20) thus far this past year with Šarūnas Jasikevičius where he talked about the roles of his Assistant Coaches as well as all the nuances of being a Head Coach in the decision-making process.

Matteo and me first met during his time as an agent while working for the “ProTalent” Agency under the helm of Maurizio Balducci, who served as a mentor for Matteo. Before he was an agent, he took his first steps at the Stellazzurra Basketball Academy in Rome. Meanwhile, Matteo is serving as the Chief of International Relations and Marketing at the NBPA office in New York, working to provide a better perspective and pathways for international players within the NBA. Matteo has a rich experience of dealing with different cultures around the world and managing all the different challenged that arise during a season, helping International players to find their own ways and mentoring them throughout the whole process after being drafted. Today, Matteo and me met at the NBPA office in NYC and enjoyed a great live-conversation in the Playstation room, where all the players usually come to relax during their training days. We sat down and talked about his work, about culture in general and the main differences between US & Europe. Off course, Identity is a huge part and we used this episode to discuss the challenges players deal with as they start their career, with all the noise and attention around them. This was a special episode not only because it was filmed live with both of us in the same space but also because we talked about “Identity”, which is also a huge topic for me and my journey.

Roger Mason Jr. has always been ahead of his time. As a professional basketball player, he spent time with seven different NBA franchises, most notably the Chicago Bulls, Washington Wizards, San Antonio Spurs and New Orleans Hornets. Similar to the way NBA players switch teams frequently today, Mason Jr. bet on himself through short-term deals that maximized his earnings, including stints in Greece and Israel after his rookie deal expired. He also sought out markets that would raise his profile off the court, leading to his signing with the New York Knicks in 2010. While playing, Mason Jr. began to show an insatiable curiosity for business opportunities off the court. This led to his ascension within the NBPA, where he eventually became deputy executive director alongside Michelle Roberts, the NBPA's current executive director. Toward the end of his playing career and during his time with the NBPA, Mason Jr. had an idea for a player-led media platform that would enable athletes to tell their stories to fans directly. This was before social media had become ubiquitous, and it led to the eventual company he founded in 2014, Vaunt. Today, Roger Mason Jr. is do-founder and CEO of Vaunt, which creates in-person, once-in-a-lifetime experiential events and streams high-quality content. The company provides fans with access to professional athletes, while also creating opportunities for players to build and monetize their own brands.
