We visit with the legendary Pat Williams, former general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers and Chicago Bulls. In addition to his MLB and NBA front office stories, Pat shares his journey of faith including his daily spiritual disciplines. As a father of 19 kids, you don’t want to miss out on his words of wisdom for parents. Pat recounts his time in Philadelphia including the chapel programs with the Sixers and Phillies (with players like Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Bobby Jones, Doug Collins, Mike Schmidt, Garry Maddox, Bob Boone and Jim Kaat). Pat shares his mentors and influencers in his life and career along with wisdom for the workplace. Kobe Bryant and his lifelong connection to Pat Williams is a fascinating story you’ll want to hear. Pat will talk about his “leap of faith” in starting an NBA expansion team. You will be encouraged by the conversation with this faithful follower of Jesus Christ who is a prolific author (over 100 books), cancer survivor, and influencer of people. You will hear the lessons learned over the course of Pat’s lengthy career in the sports world. Stay tuned until the end for a fun one-on-one fast break with Pat Williams.
