People are always asking me to share anecdotes about my decades in professional sports, to tell the stories behind the stories. They want answers to many questions. What are the players really like? How do you know which coach to hire? Will Seattle get another NBA team? What does a general manger actually do? How do you get a job in professional sports?
I’ve always been inspired by sports fans, so I decided to write a book to answer all the questions and share stories from behind the front-office curtain. Game Changer, An Insider’s Story of the Sonics’ Resurgence, the Trail Blazers’ Turnaround, and the Deal that Saved the Seahawks, publishes October 10, 2023.
