HR Happy Hour 188 - Live from the NBA Summer League - Featuring The 8 Man Rotation
Recorded Live from Las Vegas, Saturday July 19, 2014
Host: Steve Boese
Guests: Kris Dunn, Lance Haun, Matt 'The Professor' Stollak
This week on a very special HR Happy Hour Show, the guys from The 8 Man Rotation series of Ebooks on Sports and HR made their annual midsummer pilgrimage to Las Vegas to take in a few days of the Samsung NBA Summer League competition, catch a little music courtesy of Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails, and record a fun HR Happy Hour podcast over a few cheeseburgers.
Steve and the boys talked basketball (of course), but also hit upon many of the angles that apply to non-sports contexts as well, and can be relevant to HR, talent management, and building teams of any kind. The NBA Summer League is one of the great, real-life experiments in talent management and development - you have players trying to learn and acclimate, coaches and on-court officials also trying to prove themselves, and you see played out how team executives talent management strategies manifest in how they try to build their teams.
This was a really fun show, (apologies for the background music and the occasional interruption of the waiters), and many thanks to the guys for participating.
Back to more 'normal' HR content in the next show, we promise!
See you next year at NBA Summer League...

How is that old saying? How times flies when you are having fun, or something like that. Well, in a period where the World Cup has taken center stage that time sure has gone by quite quickly. Today, on "Pushing the Envelope" (10:00 til 11:00 am EST), I will give you my thoughts on the US Team, on its head coach and on the few naysayers. But there has been more than just futbol going on, the NBA Summer League is under way in Orlando. Here again I have much to say about it, and unlike the first topic, there won't be much positive on this. And of course, if we are having fun there has to be something to ruin it, and for all of you that know me, the one thing in sport that can turn things sour for me is... the NCAA. It has nothing to do with UNC or the ACC, but it does have something to do with: life or death.
We chat with LGHL writer and Upside and Motor Editor in Chief Sam Vecenie about a variety of Ohio State and basketball related topics, including what new Buckeye big man recruit Daniel Giddens brings to the table, and who he can be compared to, Aaron Craft's summer league performance, which Buckeye hoopsters are best situated in the NBA Summer League, and yes, a little about Lebron as well.
