    Experiencing the NBA in China, from those who were there

    Published October 27, 2014

    I was honored to accompany the Kings to China for preseason games against the Brooklyn Nets in Shanghai and Beijing. And even though the Kings were narrowly defeated by the Nets in both games, the trip proved to be a cultural and bonding experience I know we’ll all remember the rest of our lives. The games were part of the NBA’s Global Games and highlight the Kings’ continued commitment to owner Vivek Ranadivé’s NBA 3.0 philosophy: leveraging cuttin...

    Experiencing the NBA in China, from those who were there

    Published October 27, 2014

    The plane was enormous. When the Brooklyn Nets team buses pulled onto the tarmac at Newark airport on the afternoon of Wednesday, Oct. 8, the stunning size of the United Airlines 747 charter provided the first thrill and a prelude of what was to come. Cellphones popped out like umbrellas in a summer rainstorm as almost every player and support staff member took a photo and a selfie with the giant bird. Fourteen hours later the plane would land in Sh...

    Understanding objectives can reveal true value of college rights

    Published October 27, 2014

    In the wake of the NCAA’s August decision to allow its five richest conferences a greater degree of rule-making autonomy, some observers believe that the schools in the Pac-12, SEC, Big Ten, ACC and Big 12 may soon elect to pay their student athletes a stipend. Given that a full 80 percent of the schools in the Power Five conferences are public and receive some government support, combined with the financial tumult that funding cuts have wrought on h...

    How to save thousands while spending millions in pro football

    Published October 20, 2014

    With teams spending millions of dollars on athletes who often spend just a few hours a week in an actual game, professional football may appear to be something of a spendthrift enterprise. It’s not. I run business information systems for the Houston Texans, and it is that office’s job to make sure that we provide efficiencies to the organization under strict spending constraints. Such efficiencies can be hard-fought now that professional football is...

    New collegiate model would end one-size-fits-all approach

    Published October 20, 2014

    I was honored recently to participate on a panel at the Sept. 8 Knight Commission meeting. There, I risked proposing a radical model for intercollegiate athletics: Organize college sports into two groupings — spectator sports and participation sports — with different sets of rules and competition structures applying. This model is designed to address the apparent recognition by many (if not most) in the public, media and courts that a select group o...

    Ready for Rio? How brands can reach the two Brazils

    Published October 20, 2014

    With Brazil’s presidential race heading toward a runoff election later this month, Rio 2016 has taken a back seat in Brazil to issues of politics and economics. There is also a stark contrast between the excitement of Brazil hosting two global sporting events back-to-back and the current economic climate. But no matter the issues of today, one thing is for certain: The Olympic cauldron will be lit on Aug. 5, 2016. This raises the question: What wil...

    Published October 13, 2014

    This week at the CSE Sports Marketing Symposium, Univision will unveil the results of a new, nationwide study conducted in partnership with Vital Findings on the differences between Hispanic and non-Hispanic sports fans. Our results show that while all sports fans are valuable consumers, Hispanic sports fans, “fanaticos” as we call them at Univision, are the best. They consume more sports via more mediums, engage in more sports celebrations and conve...
