Ep. 142 - Pangos Fr/So Standouts, Biggest NBA Questions & More!

On Episode 142 of the Ballislife In The Paint Show, hosts Ronnie Flores and Ani Umana go hard on the recent Pangos Frosh/Soph Camp in SoCal, the first of four regional stops across the country in the next month.

Ron breaks down camp MOP and one of the fastest-rising prospect in the country, 2025 wing Tounde Yessoufou (St. Joseph, Santa Maria, CA), and other top event performers. Ani also previews some of the players we should expect to evaluate at the next stop in Dallas, October 1-2.

Ron and Ani also dish on the main themes of the 2022-23 NBA season and the explosive situation surrounding the Boston Celtics. Will Ime Udoka return as the head coach next season? Will he eventually be hired by another NBA franchise? How could the Celtics have handled the situation differently? The ITP Crew also dishes on LeBron chasing Kareem’s scoring record, the Brooklyn Nets and their chemistry, Zion Williamson and the Pelicans and the fortunes of the Cavaliers and Timberwolves.

The fellas also give their hard line takes on Emoni Bates’ plight, the cold relationship between Brittney Griner and her college coach Kim Mulkey, and the heart-breaking story of Aquira DeCosta, a 2018 girls high school All-American who was forced into sex trafficking earlier this year. 

The ITP crew gives some terrific insight in this week's episode, so make sure to tune in from start to finish!
