The most versatile player in the NBA Draft was also the biggest steal of the night, Justise Winslow. The Miami Heat struck gold with him falling to No. 10.

How the Spurs Keep Winning #nba   #spurs  
The San Antonio Spurs haven't missed the NBA Playoffs for nearly 2 decades. They are the benchmark for consistency in sports, but how do they do it?

Why Plan B Was Better Than Plan A #nba #lakers 
The first few days of free agency were brutal for the Lakers. Failed attempts at LaMarcus Aldridge, DeAndre Jordan and Greg Monroe had Lakers fans furious and thinking this was a repeat of last offseason’s fiasco. RELATED: 5 Things D’Angelo Russell Can Learn From Kobe Bryant Yet the same day Aldridge signed with San Antonio, Indiana […]

The Sleeper in the NBA Draft #lakers   #nba   #nbadraft  
So far the Lakers resemble more of the recent past than the future during the first 3 games of summer league, but it’s too early to pass judgement just yet. Jordan Clarkson has been the Lakers best player. D’Angelo Russell is turnover prone. Julius Randle has looked one-dimensional and rusty. Robert Upshaw is raw to […]

How Ed Davis Will Impact the Portland Trailblazers #nba  
One of the Portland Trail Blazers key free agent acquisitions this week was the 26-year-old big man, Ed Davis. They reportedly agreed on a three-year, $20 million contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Davis is hardly a LaMarcus Aldridge replacement, but he does have a specific skill set and seems to be the […]

Introduction
Author. I wrote a book based on my transition from Youth Pastor to Entrepreneur called The Startup Church. Jumping from the non-profit world to owning a business was a challenging, but the experience gives me credibility to help others make career changes.

Blogger. Two of my favorite hobbies are: leadership and sports. I’ve been able to combine both by writing for Lakers Nation, The Lake Show Life and Game 7 Network. I also turned my personal blog into a podcast called Winsight, which uses leadership in sports examples to help you win at the game of life.

Speaker. Nothing is more compelling than a great storyteller. I speak monthly at churches, schools and networking events. I get my inspiration from other exceptional communicators, especially through TED Talks.

I’m a Certified Professional Coach, have a MA in Organizational Leadership and a BA in Psychology.

I love connecting with people and exploring new opportunities/partnerships. Feel free to contact me at scott@growingforward.net
