    BRING IT IN: 3s aren't everything anymore

    1:00:08

    Today on BRING IT IN TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott and David Thorpe chop up some preseason data and note that the Warriors took a ton of 3s, and hit a ton of 3s … and barely had a top ten preseason offense. Now that Giannis has a title from owning the paint, more teams with top talent seem, perhaps, to be OK shooting 30ish 3s a game instead of 40ish or more. It’s an interesting early signal. And, Henry, David, and Jarod discuss David’s projected win totals for every NBA team.RECENT BRING IT IN EPISODES:FRIDAY October 15, 2021 David Thorpe and Jarod Hector talk Kyrie, why the Bucks can repeat, Rudy Gobert and much more.MONDAY October 11, 2021 Jarod crushes the dreams of swim parents everywhere.FRIDAY October 8, 2021 Celebrating 75 years of the NBA, who would complete the NBA 50 team?MONDAY October 4, 2021 TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott and David Thorpe dig deep into the Ben Simmons situation—What is the real problem?FRIDAY October 1, 2021 The side effects of “dumb jock” syndrome.

    BRING IT IN: Leadership in the preseason

    59:55

    Preseason essentially means nothing, but it’s still fun to see that the Bulls’ new backcourt is killing it, that very big man Boban Marjanovic is leading the league in points per minute, and that Mo Bamba appears to have turned over a new leaf.

Why is that his approach? It’s unusual. Todd updates on the current state of Pascal Siakam, who had a COVID-funky last season but is on track, he says, to do mind-blowing things this season. What’s his ceiling? “MVP” says Todd, in a way that comes off remarkably unsalesy.There’s something special about Spurs rookie Josh Primo. Why does Todd call him a unicorn?Thomas Bryant won’t be ready to start the season, but isn’t far away and looks tremendous.
