Impressive credentials:

She was a gymnast at the University of Michigan

She has a sports marketing background

She has been working in the NBA headquarters since 2015

She competed in American Ninja Warrior

The main question so far is WHY she would leave the NBA for USAG.

Let’s wish her all the best.

”Immortalized” by Hidden Citizens

Feat. Keeley Bumford

This is the song used behind that fantastic Worlds 2017 montage played in the arena.

I haven’t seen the montage online aside from a private phone video version.

Worlds 2015 Glasgow had a similarly excellent montage to Adele’s “Hello” that never made it online.
