On Episode 63 of our In The Paint podcast, co-hosts Ronnie Flores and Devin Ugland give their thoughts and takeaways from the first two episodes of The Last Dance.
The guys discuss it all: from Scottie Pippen’s unlikely route to stardom to the interesting front office, player and coach dynamic to who is the real villain: Jerry Krause or Jerry Reinsdorf? Or perhaps both?
Ron and Dev then go in-depth on the decisions of high school stars Jalen Green and Isaiah Todd to bypass college and take the G-League route to professional hoops. Will more elite prospects follow in their footsteps? How does it impact college hoops?
Rivals.com National Basketball Analyst Eric Bossi then joins the show to discuss Green and Todd in addition to how the recruiting landscape is shifting for both college programs and college prospects. Bossi also hits on the booming transfer portal and what college hoops might look like in five years.
Finally, Ron and Dev welcome highly-regarded 2021 point guard Isa Silva to the show to break down his commitment to Stanford. Why did he pick the Cardinal? Which parts of his game best translate to the next level? What kind of player can Stanford fans expect to see?
