Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 149: NBA Draft Lottery Recap + UCLA Tourney Ban?

It’s an all new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, as Aaron is joined by Nick Coffey to recap a surprisingly busy week in the world of college basketball. The guys hit on a number of issues, including:

Reaction to the NBA Draft Lottery: The guys react to the shocking news that the New Orleans Pelicans have won the draft lottery! Does this make it more or less likely that Anthony Davis is traded? What if Zion really went back to Duke? And Aaron explains why he actually thinks things worked out nicely for the Knicks.

A new rule allowed players to profit off their “likeness”: The guys talk about the NCAA looking into players profiting off autograph signings and other things related to “their likeness.” What potential problems could that cause?

Could UCLA be hit with an NCAA Tourney ban? Finally, the guys discuss UCLA potentially being banned from the NCAA Tournament because of a bad APR. Aaron says this proves that the concept that “one and done players stop going to class after the first semester” is dumb. Also, does Nevada regret giving Steve Alford a 10-year contract?

    This UCLA story is good for us and we ought to talk it up: UCLA is on the verge of falling below the 930 line (way under last year and the use a rolling average) while UK has a perfect 1000 score and has for 5 years. You see L a and it’s apologists say they got hurt by having good players leave early… really? Because I don’t think anyone had more players leave early in the last five years then we did and we had a perfect score.
