How basketball can help franchisors land a slam dunk, with James Worthy, NBA All-Star
Play • 19 min

The world of franchising often attracts experts and leaders from industries outside of its close-knit communities, such as NBA All-Star James Worthy and his recent partnership with business collaboration franchise, M3Linked.  

Following a wildly successful career in the NBA, James is now primarily known for his work as a sports commentator and analyst at Spectrum SportsNet – but he’s not finished with learning. By engaging with M3Linked’s Los Angeles community, he’s able to collaborate and learn from business leaders that bring alternative perspectives.  

It’s this sense of community and teamwork that really defines the franchise model, which is why we wanted to catch up with James to talk about his new partnership with the franchise, the lessons he’s learned from the NBA and the advice that he’d give to business leaders who want to make 2022 their most rewarding yet.
