The Indiana Pacers Director of Player Personnel, Ryan Carr, is done with the NBA draft and was able to make time to chat with Bob Kravitz.

He talked about the demands of life on the road (4:30) and the process of drafting UCLA guard Aaron Holiday (6:25). Carr revealed what it's really like in an NBA team's draft night war room and why it's not what people expect (18:30). He then discussed how he ended up making the trip from Washington state to Indiana as a student at IU (28:35) and his first time meeting legendary coach Bobby Knight (33:00). He wrapped up the conversation with how Burger King helped him with his first job with the Pacers (39:35).
