    BRING IT IN: Scottie Barnes is GOOD

    59:57

    Today, after maybe being a little harsh in talking about the weather, I—Henry—note that you should subscribe to TrueHoop because David is a real basketball professional working in media—rather than a real media professional working in basketball. It started with this Tweet, from friend of the show Chad Ford.Yup! Before the draft. when everybody thought Mobley and Barnes were the third-, fourth-, or fifth-best prospects, TrueHoop subscribers learned that David would take Evan Mobley with the first pick, and Scottie Barnes with the second.These kinds of things happen all the time. Now there’s a lot of content about James Harden looking a little off. Based on David’s preseason observations, TrueHoop subscribers learned something was up with Harden ten days ago.We plan to continue being early to all kinds of things. Of course, no one makes perfect predictions. But there’s a reason all 30 NBA teams pay attention to David. Why not join them?RECENT BRING IT IN EPISODES:FRIDAY October 22, 2021 David is betting Daryl Morey has a good trade up his sleeve to handle the Ben Simmons mess.MONDAY October 18, 2021 Now that Giannis has a title from owning the paint, more teams with top talent seem to be OK shooting 30ish 3s a game instead of 40ish or more.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?
