15 for 15: '15 people that I'd like to interview for 15 minutes each'.
Some of you may be wondering -- who's Shane Battier and why do you want to interview him?
Had my business partner Matt C not played with him at Duke, and had the NY Times article The No-Stats All-Star not been written by Michael Lewis, author of Liar's Poker and Moneyball, I wouldn't have paid the article any mind.
But I'm glad I did because the more I read, the more intrigued I became.
Let me share just a few quotes from the Lewis interview before I get to my own questions.
Shane Battier is widely regarded inside the N.B.A. as, at best, a replaceable cog in a machine driven by superstars. And yet every team he has ever played on has acquired some magical ability to win Battier...seems to help the team in all sorts of subtle, hard-to-measure ways that appear to violate his own personal interests.
