Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre - Team USA Basketball Bricked Again + ESPN Basketball analyst Jay Bilas
Manage episode 298322609 series 1923100
On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on Team USA Basketball's loss to the France in the Olympics. The fact that several players are already reportedly fed up with head coach Gregg Popovich's offense is not a great sign moving forward. If things continue to go sideways during this tournament, Pop could get the axe. Later, Jason gives us a full breakdown of the tennis tournament he played in over the weekend. Finally, ESPN basketball analyst Jay Bilas swings by to share his thoughts on Team USA's disappointing loss to France, why guys at the top like Cade Cunningham, Evan Mobley and Jalen Green could make this the best NBA Draft class we've seen since the vaunted 2003 class that featured LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade, how the G-League helped prepare Green and Jonathan Kuminga for the pros in ways that the NCAA just can't, the inevitable Scottie Barnes-Ben Simmons comparisons, how Jalen Johnson's decision to leave the Duke basketball program in the middle of the season could impact his draft stock, why some NBA teams have an aversion to taking upperclassmen at the top of the Draft, why there's a bit of a Moneyball element these days to the way NBA teams evaluate talent, and much more!
