On Episode 137 of the Ballislife In The Paint Show, hosts Ronnie Flores, Ani Umana and Chelsea Hopkins go hard in the paint on the second July live period, breaking down standouts from adidas 3SSB open, Nike Peach Jam, The Stage and Las Vegas Big Time. The ITP Crew also breaks down the television showcases games from the Big Time that included Bronny James (Strive For Greatness 17U) and Bryce James (Strive For Greatness 16U). How did LeBron's sons look and what will their future in basketball be like?

Ron and Ani also break down top event performers from the second July live recruiting period, including standouts from 3SSB Open in SoCal where Ron was at and the Nike Peach Jam where Ani was evaluating. The ITP crew goes over an array of prospects that stood out the most and also welcomes on special guest Travis Perry, a Ballislife Underclass All-American point guard from Lyon County (Eddyville, Ky.) who helped Indiana Elite capture the adidas 3SSB Finale and Open 16U titles. Travis talks about his experience on a talented team that went unbeaten in July, his teammates' success (including fast-rising 2024 Flory Bidunga), where he's at in his recruitment and the motivations heading into his junior season of high school.

Chelsea dishes on the WNBA and the "divorce" between Liz Cambage and the L.A. Sparks and gives some insight on the dynamic of WNBA locker rooms.
