It ranks these days as one of the most enviable job titles in the Bay Area: digital initiatives lead, Golden State Warriors. And the guy who owns it, Daniel Brusilovsky, is just two NBA games away from making his LinkedIn photo (pictured) ring true for a second straight year.
For a piece in the Summer issue of CNET magazine by Terry Collins, Brusilovsky teased some of the latest gadgets he’s looking into to make the team better. Watch out, rest of the NBA:
Brusilovsky sometimes takes a personal role in that testing. Case in point: the Neuroon, a sensor-equipped sleep mask to help combat jet lag.
“I sleep with it every single night,” says Brusilovsky. “We’re talking with the company each day to provide feedback on what’s working, not working and what features they could possibly add.”
Players on the Warriors’ minor league team in Santa Cruz, California, also serve as the guinea pigs in many tests.
We look forward during the 2016-17 regular season to Doris Burke or some other NBA courtside reporter asking a Warriors player how they stayed so fresh at the end of a long road trip and then grappling with the word Neuroon.
