About This Meeting

In a late afternoon Detroit Economic meeting moderated by Dan Gilbert, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver discussed the continued expansion into international markets and the business side of basketball.

When reflecting on what he learned from his predecessor David Stern, Silver mentioned how the best practices of business are applied to measuring success in the NBA.

“It is not always what people may see from the outside, because you are going to be measured by wins and losses,” said Silver. “But even when it comes to building culture on the field or on the floor, it is making good decisions.”
