Have lunch with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and other senior executives at the NBA offices in NYC

Adam Silver was appointed NBA Commissioner on Feb. 1, 2014, following unanimous approval by the NBA Board of Governors.

Prior to assuming the role of NBA Commissioner, Silver held five positions at the NBA, all working directly for former Commissioner David Stern. He served as NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer from July 1, 2006 to Jan. 31, 2014. Before serving as the league’s second-in-command, Silver spent more than eight years as President and COO, NBA Entertainment. Since joining the league in 1992, Silver also held positions of Senior VP & COO, NBA Entertainment; NBA Chief of Staff; and Special Assistant to the Commissioner.

Silver has helped establish the NBA as one of the world's preeminent sports leagues, as a model for global sports marketing organizations, and as one of the largest providers of sports programming in the world. He has been instrumental in many league accomplishments including playing a key role in the negotiations of the league's last two television agreements, the last three collective bargaining agreements with the National Basketball Players Association, the development of the WNBA and NBA Development League, the partnership with Turner Broadcasting to jointly manage the NBA's digital assets, and the creation of NBA China.

Silver has consistently been named one of the 100 Most Influential People in Sports by BusinessWeek, the Sporting News and the SportsBusiness Journal. He has also been recognized by Time Magazine and CNN on their list of Global Business Influentials, which features 20 of the world's leading corporate executives.

In addition to serving on the boards of NBA China and the Lustgarten Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, Silver is a member of the University of Chicago Law School Visiting Committee.

Prior to joining the NBA, Silver was a litigation associate at the New York law firm of Cravath, Swaine & Moore, where he concentrated on media and antitrust cases. He also served as a law clerk to Federal District Court Judge Kimba Wood in New York. Silver graduated from Duke University and the University of Chicago Law School.
