NBAchaplain.com -- PART ONE: WHAT DOES AN NBA CHAPLAIN DO? -- Joel Freeman speaks all over the world on various topics (leadership, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, diversity, etc.) to many different organizations.
PART ONE: Joel Freeman was asked to speak at the AOL headquarters in Dulles, VA on December 4th, 2013 about his experiences as one of the first sports chaplains in the history of the NBA. Joel served as mentor/chaplain for the Washington Bullets/Wizards for 20 seasons (1978/79 to 97/98) and still keeps in touch with many of the players throughout the NBA and other professional sports.
AOL provided this video to me...from a brand new A/V system they had just installed. And i am grateful for the footage. This was the first time they had ever video-taped an event. I am not sure that the audio and lips are synced perfectly. Sorry about that...
