Kevin PritchardThe following is an update regarding content across the Business of Sports Network.

In our continuation of interviews with those making news in the business of sports, we bring you The Biz of Basketball interview with Portland Trail Blazer general manager, Kevin Pritchard.

Pritchard was hired by the Blazers in 2004 as the Director of Player Personnel after spending a year and a half with the San Antonio Spurs. Prior to that, he spent three years with the Kansas City Knights of the ABA where he served as the team’s general manager, head coach and director of player personnel. During the 2000-2001 season, Pritchard had seven players promoted to the NBA. At the end of the ’04-’05 season, Pritchard was named the interim coach of the Blazers after the firing of Maurice Cheeks. In June of 2006, John Nash was fired as GM after going 21-61; the worst record in the NBA that season, and in March of 2007, Pritchard was named GM.

This interview looks into the Zen that the Blazers have seemed to capture along with the youth movement; what value Pritchard places on chemistry and team play; how the team will be brighter still when Greg Oden returns; the payroll flexibility coming up in the near future that will allow him to work the free agency market; the status of Oden and Darius Miles in terms of injury; the use of statistical analysis in basketball, and much more.

Live Without A Net: Super Bowl XLII Blog

Super Bowl XLII

 

SUPER BOWL XLII

New England Patriots (18-0) vs. New York Giants (13-6)

University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Ariz.

FOX
Pre-Game: 2pm ET
Game Broadcast: 6pm ET
Kickoff: 6:17pm ET

The biggest sporting event of the year breaks loose when Super Bowl XLII is played later today between the New England Patriots and New York Giants. And, while the game starts at just after 6PM ET, we know that to many of you, the Super Bowl is an all day event.

The Biz of Football will be blogging the event from the angles that only we do. For example…

  • Live outside the US, and wonder where the game is being shown? We have a listing of the 223 countries and what broadcasters are airing Super Bowl XLII.
  • We’ll be watching those who are watching. From pre-game to post-game and in-between, Maury Brown and Bill Jordan will be critiquing the broadcasters.
  • We’ll be reporting on the commercials for the big game. Want to know who’s advertising, and when? We have a list of the 63 advertisers for the game, how many ads they will run, and what quarter you can see them in.
  • We’ll be covering the halftime entertainment. If Tom Petty muffs a chord, we’ll catch it.
  • During the game, Maury and Bill will be providing live reports on every aspect of the game – the serious, and not so serious (Maury wonders, “How many times will “Spygate” be said? How many times will Joe Buck say, “Peyton”? And, just how many, “1972 Dolphin” references will be had?)

The festivities start in just a few short hours, so don’t miss it on The Biz of Football.


The Biz of Football is part of the Business of Sports Network. For details on our interviews, latest new on MLB, the NBA, the NFL and the NHL from outside the lines, check www.businessofsportsnetwork.com for information and links to the Network's sites.
