With the start of the NBA program fast approaching, Magellan staff and guests were treated to a special “chalk talk” Lunch and Learn featuring members of the Chicago Bulls front office staff. John Paxson, Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations, and General Manager Gar Forman, stopped by to participate in a hoops-related discussion moderated by the Bulls’ legendary radio play-by-play announcer Chuck Swirsky. The two Bulls executives shared insights into their approach to talent evaluation and drafting players, discussed the current state of the team, and shed light on some of the Bulls’ long term strategic plans. Paxson and Forman also fielded questions from those in attendance. The presentation provided an interesting behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of a professional basketball team and left everyone with a renewed excitement for the upcoming Bulls season.
