The Ranadive Five

Before Vivek Ranadive bought the Sacramento Kings and joined NBA basketball he had his own squad. He took an unlikely group of Silicon Valley daughters to national prominence with an unorthodox style of play. The team became the basis of a story by Malcolm Gladwell that was later featured in his book “Outliers”. Though we don’t know the name of the team we’ve affectionately dubbed them “The Ranadive Five.”
