It’s a new week and time for a fresh edition of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast! This week Aaron is joined by his old buddy, Rob Perez, better known as the World’s Greatest Tweeter, “World Wide Wob.” The president of NBA Twitter talked about his rise to stardom, the NBA Playoffs and more.
But Aaron starts things off with his buddy Nick Coffey, as the two talk:
The NBA Draft Deadline: Sunday was the deadline to declare for the NBA Draft, and now that it’s official, who has the most to lose over the next few weeks? Aaron believes that Villanova and Kentucky can go from “good” to “national championship good” if the right pieces come back, does Nick agree? Also, the curious case of Nevada, which could be a Top 10 team going into next year depending on who returns.
Quade Green’s return: The guys briefly touch on Quade Green’s decision to return to Kentucky. They discuss why it was so important, and why it would have been a bad sign for “Calipari’s system” if he didn’t come back.
John Calipari’s NBA Draft Combine idea: The guys wrap up discussing John Calipari’s proposed NBA Draft combine. They explain why Calipari is right, and why if something isn’t put into place it could be chaotic for both pro and college basketball.
Next up, Aaron is joined by his friend, Rob Perez, a.k.a “World Wide” and host of the show “Buckets” on Facebook. The two discuss:
Wob’s unique rise in the industry: Wob tells the story of how he went from an NBA ticket broker, to the “World Wide Wob” phenomenon he is today. He also explains his love of Adam Silver and why he had to once write 14,000 apology letters to Philadelphia fans.
Looking at the NBA Playoffs: What are the most surprising results so far? Does anyone have any hope against the Warriors? Does Cleveland have a chance in the East? And where will LeBron end up next year if it’s not Cleveland.
The Rise of Anthony Davis: Wob and Aaron discuss the rise of former Wildcat Anthony Davis. Is it time to start naming him alongside LeBron James and Kevin Durant as the NBA’s best player?
