On Episode 71 of our In The Paint Podcast, co-hosts Ronnie Flores and Devin Ugland welcome three basketball industry guests who share their expertise on a variety of topics.
First, Braeden Proctor, a former high school hoops reporter in Michigan and current assistant coach at Sunrise Christian Academy, joins the show to discuss Emoni Bates’ commitment to Michigan State and his transfer to Ypsi Prep.
What were some of the main reasons Bates made these moves? Will he ever play a minute in a Michigan State uniform? What will Ypsi Prep’s schedule look like next season?
Our second guest is ESPN senior writer for The Undefeated, Marc Spears. Marc brings his wealth of NBA knowledge to the show and discusses how NBA players, teams and the league will address social justice issues during the Orlando restart. Marc also breaks down the NBA “bubble” protocols and gives an insider’s perspective on how players, coaches, and team front office members are feeling about getting back to action.
Our third guest is Lakers beat writer Kyle Goon of the Southern California News Group. Kyle gives our local listeners an idea of how the purple and gold are preparing for Orlando. How big of a hit is the loss of Avery Bradley? Which way is Dwight Howard leaning? What role to the Lakers see for newly-signed guard JR Smith? You can hear all that and more on the latest episode of the In The Paint Show.
