Where do you think Bettman cut his teeth?

Bettman joined the National Basketball Association in 1981, serving mainly in the marketing and legal departments.[9] Bettman rose to third in command of the NBA, spending many years as the league's general counsel and senior vice president.[10] Bettman played a key role in the development of the soft salary cap system implemented and agreed by the NBA in 1983,[11] a system it continues to use today.[12]
