Kim Stone’s NBA journey in becoming one of the most powerful people in sports business

Kim Stone’s anxiety swelled with each keypad touch. It was a call she had made over and over and over again, to a voice that loves her unconditionally, yet she was still nervous.

She was in her early 30s, a rising star in sports business with the Miami Heat navigating a public life in private. She wasn’t disingenuous, but she wasn’t revealing, either. Stone didn’t ask her employees how they spent their weekends because she didn’t want to be asked how she spent hers.
