'You can learn from the chairman of Goldman Sachs'

Lloyd Blankfein

Goldman Sachs CEO Officer Lloyd Blankfein offered advice to National Basketball Association owners on domestic and international affairs as well as ideas on how to best run a business.

Bloomberg reports that Blankfein was interviewed two days ago by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer as part of the league’s two-day Board of Governors meeting, which ended Wednesday in New York.

It was the last board meeting under the stewardship of David Stern, who is retiring and being replaced as commissioner by Adam Silver in February. The next owners meeting is scheduled for April.

'I loved it', Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, said in an interview after the meeting. 'He’s exposed to a lot of ideas, another view of the world. You can never learn enough'.

Boston Celtics managing partner Wyc Grousbeck, who took a leave of absence as general partner of venture capital firm Highland Capital Partners to run the basketball team, said owners were 'all ears' when Blankfein spoke.

'You can learn from the chairman of Goldman Sachs', Grousbeck said in an interview after the meeting, declining to offer specifics. 'I learned a lot'.
