Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 91: Walter McCarty

The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast is back and ready to talk about all the big storylines in sports. This week Aaron has a special guest, new Evansville head coach, and former Kentucky Wildcat and long-time NBA veteran Walter McCarty. Before McCarty joins the show, Aaron is joined by his buddy Nick Coffey, as they recap the whole weekend in college football, including:

Is Clemson a challenger for Alabama? The guys start by talking Clemson, which – for the third straight game – dominated an opponent. Are they finally a team that is built to challenge Alabama? Also, are we starting to see greatness from freshman QB Trevor Lawrence?

Kentucky’s Wild Win over Missouri: The guys also talk about the Wildcats wild, last second win over Missouri. What a crazy win – and Aaron explains why he believes the Wildcats match-up well with Georgia next week.

Next up, Aaron is joined by a very special guest, as new Evansville basketball coach Walter McCarty joins the show. He and Aaron hit on a number of different topics, including:

McCarty’s Playing Days: Aaron and he talk about his time playing in both Kentucky and the NBA. They discuss how his ’96 title team was kind of like a John Calipari team years before John Calipari ever got to Kentucky. Also, what about how he was born a few years too early – and how his game would perfectly translate to today’s NBA.

His time coaching in the NBA: Next up, McCarty discusses his time coaching in the NBA with the Boston Celtics. What did he learn from Brad Stevens that he will take to college and what was it like to game-plan for LeBron James. Also, would the Celtics have won Game 7 last year if Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward hadn’t been hurt?

Purple Aces: Finally, Walter wraps by discussing his new team at Evansville. What are his hopes for this year and what does he hope to build long-term in his home town?
