The NBA Draft is over and the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast is your home for the most comprehensive post-draft coverage anywhere. Aaron is joined by Nick Coffey and they chat for over an hour on the draft’s biggest storylines.
Mikal Bridges’ Mom: Bridges and his mom, a 76ers employee, were the story of the draft… right up until Bridges got traded from Philadelphia to Phoenix. Was this an even ploy by Philly? And how can Philly even make trades without a GM.
Michael Porter Jr’s Fall: The guys do a deep dive on Michael Porter Jr’s fall, and why it might be the best thing for him. Did the Nuggets actually get the best player in the draft? And is it really a risk even if he is injured?
How Good is Luka Doncic? The guys debate the third overall pick Luka Doncic and whether we should actually buy the hype. Aaron explains why Sacramento didn’t make a mistake passing on him, and the guys wonder why so many draft snobs are obsessed with European prospects. Also, how many top European prospects actually work out at the NBA level?
Why Kevin Knox to the Knicks is a Perfect Fit: Aaron explains why he believes that Knox was the steal of the draft with the Knicks. The guys also talk about why they hate Mo Bamba to the Magic and give a big shout out to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Plus, stay til the end for a conversation on Reid Travis, and why John Calipari shook up all of college basketball with his decision to attend Kentucky.
