It’s Monday, and we’ve got a WILD edition of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. Aaron reacts to breaking news of Michigan’s John Beilein headed to the NBA. Plus he shares thoughts on Tuesday’s NBA Draft Lottery, discusses big recruiting wins for Kentucky and Memphis and as well as how the NBA Playoffs prove the value of college basketball. Here is a rundown of today’s show:
John Beilein to the NBA: Aaron reacts to the shocking, stunning news that Michigan head coach John Beilein will go to the NBA. He explains why this makes sense from the Cavaliers perspective, and what they will be getting in a head coach. Also, what the heck does Michigan do now for their next head coach?
The NBA Playoffs Are Proving the Value of College Basketball: As Aaron watched the NBA Playoffs this weekend, he noticed how many players – from Steph Curry to Kawhi Leonard to Damian Lillard – stayed in college for more than one season. He explains why the numbers show that we’re looking at the NBA Draft wrong, and why players should be staying in college longer, not leaving for the NBA as quickly as possible.
Previewing the NBA Draft Lottery: The NBA Draft lottery is Tuesday and Aaron has some thoughts leading into the big event.
A Big Basketball Recruiting Weekend: Johnny Juzang is going to Kentucky — what kind of impact will he have on the Wildcats? Also, after Memphis added two more big-time players it’s fair to ask: Just how high will Penny Hardaway’s club be ranked heading into next season?
