The RKYHS sports management club recently had the special opportunity to visit the offices of the NBA. The group heard a presentation from Kushner parents Jeremy Rosenfeld and Rita Rak about sports business and the global business of the NBA in particular. The students took a behind-the-scenes tour of the facilities, including the replay center, and got an inside look at digital media and production operations at the NBA. The visit was eye-opening into the inner-workings of the league and they gained much insight into the business end of the organization. The students asked many engaging questions that displayed their breadth of knowledge about the NBA and their interest level in the business of sports.

The sports management club also recently heard from Brian Geltzeiler and learned about broadcasting in the NBA. Geltzeiler is a sports talk radio personality on Sirius XM NBA Radio and a television studio analyst for NBA TV’s nightly pregame show “10 Before Tip.” He spoke to the RKYHS sports management club about his career as an NBA analyst and also fielded questions from the students about some of the many insights into the player performances as well as predictions for the future.
