Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 159: A Full NBA Draft Recap

It’s Friday, and the NBA Draft is officially over. What better way to re-live it all, than with an all new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast? Aaron takes you through the highs and lows, and peaks and valleys of the draft, discussing a number of topics, including…

The NBA Draft shows the value of college basketball: For all the talk about the NBA Draft being about “upside” and “potential” Thursday night’s draft proved the value of having success in college basketball. Aaron discusses how players like Jarrett Culver, Cam Johnson and PJ Washington, who performed in college were rewarded, while those who struggled like Romeo Langford, Nassir Little and Bol Bol felt the effects of their play. Who says college basketball doesn’t have value?

The teams with the best draft’s: Next up, Aaron breaks down individual teams, and shares his winners and losers of the 2019 NBA Draft. He explains why he loves what teams like the Hawks, Grizzlies and 76ers did on draft night, and why they will have success down the road. He also wondered what was up with New Orleans? Yes, they drafted Zion Williamson, but if they are trying to win now, why draft a project in Jaxson Hayes?

The best of the rest: Finally, Aaron wraps by talking about the rest of his favorite picks. He explains why he thinks Jarrett Culver works in Minnesota, and PJ Washington will be a steal in Charlotte. Also, why Tyler Herro was always destined for Miami, and how Daniel Gafford could be the guy that everyone regrets passing on.
