A much needed All-Star break
Today on BRING IT IN, TrueHoop’s David Thorpe, and Jarod Hector discuss:
Ime Udoka and taking time with young coaches.
All-Star weekend—Coach Thorpe is not a fan, particularly of the Rising Stars game.
Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetokounmpo out on a show on national TV Thursday night.
The three best players right now are all seven footers and not American, what should we make of that?
Is Ja Morant the best American player at his age since LeBron? Coach Thorpe thinks so. Jarod adds in another player who belongs in the discussion.
The All-Star break is a chance to reset, what should coaches do during the break to prepare for the stretch run?
The 2023-24 season will be the end of the current CBA. Changes are coming and the owners will want some control back. What changes should be made?
Jarod and Coach Thorpe agree on abolishing the draft, a 58-game regular season, with in-season style tournaments. Jarod also thinks all contracts should be 2+1 deals with mutual opt-ins.
