On June 17, ESPN analyst Jay Bilas made headlines by tweeting that college programs and coaches didn’t develop NBA talent. Instead, they just recruited them to their respective schools.
“One thing: college programs “don’t “produce” pros, they recruit them,” he said. “Good coaches at every level help players improve but [they] don’t “produce” pros.”
After getting backlash on social media about the comments, Matt Jones decided to have Bilas on Hey Kentucky to discuss his controversial comments this evening.
