I want to be a nba gm. I know you have to work your way up. But what steps do you have to take to become a nba gm
wouldn't we all like to be an nba gm. two words - pipe dream
Join the club. If we knew we wouldnt be here answering this dumb post. I'd fight you to the death to be a GM.
...become an NBA player. That will improve your chances exponentially. Otherwise, get to know an NBA owner really really well, and/or work as a very successful scout for a good 25-30 years.
Becoming a NBA player is the best way, since most of the current GMs, assistant GMs, and presidents of basketball operations are former professional basketball players. Of course there are plenty of former NBA players that might have the same dream as you of being a GM one day.
Also, like ch15r36is said, being a very successful scout for a long time. To even be considered for a NBA's team scout position it would be best if you have some college basketball experience. That would really help you get your foot in the door.
Obviously, it isn't an easy job to get. There is a JV coach in my town whom's dad (played at UK with Pat Riley) is one of the top regional scouts for the Miami Heat (he advised them to select Wade) and this JV coach wasn't too big on traveling alot to scout these players.
Either way or option you take it will be a job you have to earn through years of hard work. Of course David Kahn, GM of the Wolves, had a crazy career path to get his position.
you have to pass this test.....
you just fill out an application at the nearest arena. Seriously, I'm not one to shoot down someone's goals, but I would probably aim a little lower. And I seriously doubt anyone here can help you out on this quest. Good luck.
Having a rly good education prob helps
you have eat a crab leg, a walnut and a Spicy meatball 5 dollar footl ong ( in that order) while doing pushups with David Stern and Stu Jackson on you back in front of the NBA Store in NYC....
Thats how you become a NBA GM
You have to be smart, well connected, having played/coached basketball at a high level or potentially been a lawyer. But they got you with that one? Well, guess you figured it out when you didn't become a GM.
No my friend asks when I was like 14...he did all that and Stern laughed at him and mule kick him....I learned that is not the route to becoming a NBA GM
