BRING IT IN: Good young players
Today on BRING IT IN, David Thorpe notices an incredibly smart foul, and game awareness, from 25-year-old unheralded Heat guard Gabe Vincent. There’s a false choice: that you can play old, wise players, or athletic learners. The magic is to have it all: incredible young athletes who make heady plays. Of course that’s possible! Henry and David discuss.
