Sports Business Classroom is excited to announce its 2018 schedule, featuring lectures, roundtables, interactive training and top speakers from across professional basketball. The one-of-a-kind program runs Sunday, July 8 through Saturday, July 15 at Thomas & Mack Center during Las Vegas NBA Summer League.

Sports Business Classroom maximizes learning in a hands-on environment, with content organized into lectures (16 hours), panels and 1:1 discussions (6 ½ hours), interactive exercises (10 hours), and major-specific deep dives (9 hours). Ample time is provided following every session for Q&As and networking with guests (12 hours).
Featured instructors, speakers and guests for 2018 include Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban, Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey, Nike Ambassador George Raveling, former Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho, Award-winning social and digital media strategist Tracy Weissenberg, Spurs VP of Strategic Research Kirk Goldsberry, NBA Digital’s VP of Content Operations Eric Jackson, NBA TV and NBA.com Analyst Sekou Smith, Golden State Warriors Assistant General Manager Kirk Lacob, and Dunc’d On Podcast host Nate Duncan. The program is led by SBC General Manager and salary cap expert Larry Coon.
