Functionally, it’s a multi-day scouting opportunity-slash-midseason summit attended by all 30 teams.
1. Having watched this annual event on television in the past, I can now confirm that the G-League Showcase is not for the faint of heart. But for scouts, executives and writers alike, it’s also a massive daily slog made palatable mostly by the fact that the ability to sit in one or two places for 12 hours at a time and retain a reasonable percentage of cognitive function is a prerequisite for anyone remotely interested in working in basketball.

It was back in early May 2009 when Gruden launched this new phase of his life—he and a top producer at ESPN sat across a table at the Michelin-starred Gramercy Tavern in Manhattan’s Flatiron District to talk television. Gruden had been fired by the Buccaneers months earlier after his seventh season with the team, six seasons removed from winning a Super Bowl over the Raiders. Jay Rothman, who had produced Monday Night Football since ESPN acquired the rights beginning in 2006, told the coach he believed he could be the Y2K version of Madden—“with the Chucky factor,” Rothman added, referring to the scar-faced, redheaded doll antagonist of the Child’s Play horror films.
Eight seasons and six Sports Emmy award nominations later, Gruden sat at a conference table at the Raphael Hotel with about 30 MNF staffers to run down the plan for the upcoming broadcast, his last.
