It’s Thursday and you know what that means: An all new edition of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. Aaron discusses the big topics in sports this week including the NBA’s wild “bubble” regulations as well as Mike Gundy facing wrath over a t-shirt. He then welcomes Central Connecticut coach, UConn legend and 15-year NBA vet Donyell Marshall to the show. Here is a full recap of the show:
NBA bubble trouble and Mike Gundy: Aaron opens the show by discussing the biggest topic in sports: The NBA bubble. He details the crazy restrictions and asks the question: With the entire country opening up including amusement parks, Las Vegas and more, is the “bubble” too restrictive? And is it all necessary? He then talks about a crazy week for Mike Gundy, why “cancel culture” is a bad trend, and why he loved seeing Gundy and Chuba Hubbard settle their differences by talking them out.
Central Connecticut coach and former NBA player Donyell Marshall joins the show: Marshall and Torres two discuss the difficulties of coaching at a low major school, where Marshall and his players have to buy their own uniforms, sneakers and basketballs. He then talks about his glory days at UConn, playing for Jim Calhoun and alongside LeBron James in the NBA. He shares a crazy story from the night that LeBron scored 48 points against the Pistons in the 2008 Playoffs.
