Da Art Of Storytelling (Feat. Rick Welts)

podcast April 28, 2023

share close

Not many people who never laced up and stepped between the lines have had as big an impact on the NBA as RICK WELTS. The longtime executive, who has been associated with the league in one way or another for half a century, sat down with Point Forward hosts ANDRE IGUODALA and EVAN TURNER for an interview recorded during All-Star Weekend – an event he was instrumental in creating – to share his wealth of wisdom. Welts talked about his earliest days with the Seattle Supersonics in the 1970s, moving to the league office to reshape the league’s image in the ‘80s, what it was like working for David Stern, the origins of the Dream Team, his role in evolving the Golden State Warriors from cellar dwellers to a dynasty, and plenty more. If you want to hear how a great business mind ideates, navigates challenges, and evolves – look no further.  

Plus, before sitting down with Rick, the guys talk about Nick Nurse’s time in Toronto coming to an end, players that end up in “Duke jail,” Ohio State quarterbacks, the S2 Cognition Test, and whether or not Usher should headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
