Alumni of the 2017 Sports Business Classroom have started their own NBA podcast called “The Bench Mob”  which will facilitate in-depth conversations about the NBA, its prospects, and team specific news around the league.

How The Bench Mob began:

“As our time at Sports Business Classroom drew to a close, there were quite a few of us who looked around the room, and did not want that feeling to go away. It was a feeling of camaraderie, of belonging to a group that had many shared interests, part of that feeling was pushing each other to be our very best.

Unsurprisingly, a few people were planning on starting their own podcasts. They decided to join together and keep the SBC feeling going after we left Las Vegas. The podcast didn’t have a name at that time, and only a few of us were involved. Now we have over 20 members, all SBC 2017 alums helping produce content, edit podcasts, come up with ideas for new episodes, and market the show. It has been a real group effort fitting of the name “The Bench Mob”.

What started as a way to keep the class in touch has grown into a very real show about basketball and the culture around the NBA. An extremely talented group of young individuals is bringing a plethora of ideas, takes, and opinions. The Bench Mob is here to serve as their platform.”
