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...

Which NFL QB is most likely to win their first superbowl first? Does that make sense? Sure it does. There are a lot of great QB's in the NFL who have never won a ring, and the team debates who they think, if any, will get that ring first. Names like Romo, Rivers, Ryan, Dalton, Stafford etc....
The NFL is investigating the "sticky gloves" that WR's may be wearing. They want to see if it gives players a competitive edge. The team decides if this is a good thing or a waste of time.
One of the best "work-beefs" of this generation was the famous split between Shaq and Kobe. The two could have done so well together. Shaq says today, according to CBSSports, that he forgives Kobe. More to come, so tune in!
