Masai Ujiri is one of the most successful NBA executives in the last couple of years with the Toronto Raptors. The Nigeria native shared his story talking to NBA on TNT host Ernie Johnson.

Ujiri is the only non-American front office executive to win the executive of the year award in 2013, while, last season, he became an NBA champion with the Raptors.

As Ujiri said, he feels blessed to working in the NBA and meeting plenty of his idols like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and others.
