Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 152: R.J. Hampton to New Zealand + NBA Draft Decisions

Big news on this Tuesday afternoon, as Aaron survived his bachelor party and is back with an all new edition of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. He discusses all the major developments from across basketball, including RJ Hampton to New Zealand, Kansas getting a key piece back, and even some NBA Finals thoughts. Here’s a rundown:

RJ Hampton to New Zealand: Aaron reacts to the somewhat shocking decision of five-star guard RJ Hampton, who elected to play in New Zealand next season. Aaron understands Hampton’s desire to play basketball full-time, but also questions if it is really “better preparation for the NBA” than going to college. He has some stats and notes that will surprise you.

LSU will once again be loaded next year: Next up, Aaron discusses the late-breaking news that LSU will return Skylar Mays and Marlon Taylor to next year’s team. This news came after Javonte Smart announced his return last week, and Trendon Watford committed to the school. Love them or hate them, Will Wade’s boys are going to once again be an SEC contender next season.

Other odds and ends from across the basketball landscape: Finally, Aaron wraps up by discussing the NCAA’s surprising decision to reinstate Silvio De Sousa at Kansas. Plus he even talks a little NBA Finals, and explains why he thinks that yes, the Raptors have a chance against the Warriors.
