Two lucky winners will get to attend the 2008 NBA Draft at the Madison Square Garden in New York City. The winners will get a backstage tour, including a visit to the Green Room, where the potential lottery picks wait for their shining moment with their family and friends, and they may get to meet the league's Commissioner, David Stern, other NBA officials, and current and past players. The night could end at one of the many draft after-parties held by current and future NBA stars.
Following the draft, up to four people will get the chance to have lunch with the NBA's Deputy Commissioner, Adam Silver '88. Mr. Silver has largely been credited with the leagues dramatic expansion and popularity abroad. He was an Executive Producer of the IMAX presentation “Michael Jordan to the Max” and the Emmy Award-winning TNT documentary, “Whatever Happened to Micheal Ray?” Mr. Silver was named in 2003 to Time Magazine’s and CNN’s list of Global Business Influentials, which features 20 of the world’s leading corporate executives. In 2005, Silver was named the 16th Most Powerful Person in Sports by The Sporting News. Prior to joining the NBA, he served as a litigation associate at Cravath, Swaine & Moore, where he concentrated on media and anti-trust cases. He also served as a law clerk to Judge Kimba Wood at the Federal District Court in New York City.
