“After having relied on Don for his programming and entertainment knowledge at NBA All-Star Jam Session for 12 consecutive years, Don’s expertise was requested on multiple international events, the highlight of which was the 2010 Asia Challenge in Manila, Philippines, featuring over a week of grassroots, community and sponsor events anchored by a special NBA Legend exhibition game. Don’s efforts were instrumental in the development and execution of programming the entire week and were met with praise and appreciation by sponsors and our regional office in Asia. He’s proven his abilities on NBA business on both domestic and international platforms.”
