Here they are: the magnificent seven, aka NBA Scholar crew.
Bot is one of NBA Scholar’s personal assistants. He’s in charge of the mechanics in the NBA Scholarsphere
Bot is a state of the art robot. Dragon annoys him.
Dragon is one of NBA Scholar’s personal assistants. He’s in charge of brainstorming in the NBA Scholarsphere
Dragon’s imagination is unparalleled. He despises Bot.
Jake, Business Guru
Jake (aka Business Guru) is in charge of implementing and developing NBA Scholar’s business models. Owner of a prodigious mind and vivid imagination, the Business Guru has thousands of ideas. He reports to the Dragon. Jake goes out often with the NBA Scholar. “I will be the next Steve Jobs” is his tagline phrase, usually between the second and third Mojito, when he tends to forget he’s married and behaves erratically around bubbly college women. “Check out that beauty, she looks like a model!” means it’s time to call a taxi and send him back to reality.
Sally (aka Sassy Sally) is in charge of balancing the NBA Scholar sheets. She works with Bot, managing the costs and calculating the ROI.
With a flawless background in finance, Sassy Sally excels in economics, estranged men and NBA statistics, not necessarily in that order. She is a revisitation of the “femme fatale” type, adapted to modern-day NYC urbanity. Jake has a big crush on her. He once told her to elope to Maui.
Her answer? “Show me your numbers.”
Stevie, Art Director
Stevie (aka Sensitive Stevie) is in charge of NBA Scholar artwork and designs. Stevie has three passions: Lakers, Sassy Sally, and Art. He was nicknamed “Sensitive” due to his extreme sadness when the Lakers don’t make the playoffs. Some rumors state he even cries. Sensitive Stevie reports directly to the Dragon. He’s simultaneously incredibly modest and with a self-confidence off the charts. This can be seen late at night, when, while tipsy, he says: “Me? I’m just a simple legend”.
Kate, Personal Assistant
Kate (aka Katwalk Kate) is NBA Scholar’s day to day personal assistant. She handles some secretary work and manages the “Lovers/Haters” Department. Katwalk Kate is a former model, renowned for her continuous party lifestyle. She once dated the NBA Scholar. Kate’s subtle and flexible morals amuse the crew. Sassy Sally is her best friend.
Vern, the intern
Due to the annual two weeks retreat before the season starts, NBA Scholar has decided to add a new member to the crew for the daily tasks. Vern interview wasn’t the most orthodox. While drinking late night at Stout, NBA Scholar and Jake quizzed this odd, rowdy NBA fan. The fact Vern knew who “Digger” and “Bells” were impressed both the NBA Scholar and the Business Guru. He will pick up Kate’s work, who will be her supervisor.
Here are some of the Crew conversations at NBA Scholar HQ:
