CORPORATE LADDER: SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL's John Lombardo notes with the recent hires of Granger and 76ers CEO SCOTT O'NEIL, the NBA's team marketing and business operations department "increasingly is serving as an executive pipeline to some of the top jobs in sports." Stern last week said of the group, "As a conveyor of best practices, it is an incubator for extraordinary talent." Bill Sutton & Associates Principal and former NBA VP/Team Marketing Services BILL SUTTON, who helped create the group, said, "I don’t think we ever knew it would be such a pipeline. It was originally set up to improve team performance" (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 7/15 issue).
