Delve into the world of the NBA with someone who has coached in the NBA, has played as an all-star, and now works behind the scenes. Kiki VanDeWeghe is a basketball executive, currently the vice-president of basketball operations of the NBA.
VanDeWeghe is a retired professional basketball player and was formerly general manager of the Denver Nuggets and the New Jersey Nets, and a head coach of the Nets.
As a player, VanDeWeghe was regarded as an excellent scorer and outside shooter, averaging 20 points for seven consecutive seasons. His offensive repertoire was essentially limited to a single move, the step back, but he was so proficient at this lone move that it was often referred to as the "Kiki Move" toward the end of his career. VanDeWeghe's teams qualified for the NBA playoffs in 12 of his 13 seasons in the league, although none of his teams ever won the NBA championship.
