The NBA was the big winner of the 2015 Sports Business Awards, capped with commissioner Adam Silver winning executive of the year. Noting he was a bit overwhelmed by the honor, Silver said it was wonderful to be honored amongst his peers. In a year where the NBA set a number of new league records on the business side, Silver said, “We hardly ever look backwards at the NBA, but this sets a new bar for ourselves.”
