Marc Lasry, Milwaukee Bucks Co-Owner and Avenue Capital Group Co-Founder/Chairman/CEO is the featured guest for the Sports Business Radio Road Show presented by Boingo (@Boingo).
Lasry’s Bucks are in the Eastern Conference Finals and on the cusp of advancing to their first NBA Finals since 1971. The Bucks are led by international star and 2-Time @NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and they play in a new state-of-the-art arena, Fiserv Forum, that opened in 2018 in downtown #Milwaukee.
Lasry tells us how the Bucks were able to sign Giannis Antetokounmpo to a max deal last December and how they extended star guard Jrue Holiday earlier this year, thus keeping the Bucks’ core intact for years to come.
We discuss potential NBA expansion, the possibility of a mid-season NBA Tournament, the success of the NBA Play-In and other topics that are being discussed amongst NBA owners at the Board of Governors meetings.
Lasry, a former college basketball player, even offers up a scouting report of his own hoops game and tells us how often he is able to get shots up with his Bucks team during the NBA season.
Boingo CEO Mike Finley joins Brian Berger and Marc Lasry for a portion of the conversation to discuss technology, connectivity and the acceleration of digital during the pandemic.
