Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 162: NBA Free Agent Frenzy + XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck

We’ve got a little bit of a different Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. After recapping the weekend that was, Aaron is joined by a very special guest: New XFL commissioner Oliver Luck. Highlights:

NBA Free Agency: Aaron talks about the crazy first day of NBA free agency. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are heading to the Nets — but Aaron thinks it says more about the Knicks. Is this the lowest moment for franchise ever, in the history of pro sports? Aaron thinks it just might be. Also, can KD and Kyrie work in New York?

The Indiana-Kentucky conversation pops up again: Last week, the debate on renewing the Indiana-Kentucky series reemerged when John Calipari was asked about it in the SEC Basketball Teleconference. Aaron understands why Kentucky doesn’t want the game, but he also thinks Indiana is missing out on a big opportunity. Does IU need this game to help re-establish their national brand?

XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck joins the show: Aaron and XFL commissioner Oliver Luck sat down for a face-to-face conversation about the new football league. Luck explains what it’s like to start a professional football league from scratch, and why this version of the XFL will be different than the one back in the early 2000’s. What will the league look like when it launches next year? Luck has all the details!
