    He can’t jump very high. He’s not very fast. In fact, he fails the ‘eyeball’ test in nearly every basketball category. And yet, Shane Battier has proved to be invaluable to every team he has ever suited up for. In this impassioned and inspiring presentation, Battier shares with audiences the ways in which he believes sacrifice, ownership, embracing failure, championship professionalism, and a Hunger Games mentality contribute to the powerful and significant intersection of art and commerce.
