Rank #2: 08/07: The NCAA wrongly changed its player-agent rule, angering LeBron James and presidential candidates in the process

Podcast cover
Read more
On Tuesday, news leaked that the NCAA made major alterations to its rules regarding which agents could represent players in the pre-draft process. The rule modifications have been widely panned, most notably by LeBron James, who dubbed it #TheRichPaulRule, though the guys explain why that's not true at all. The podcast opens with a 25-minute conversation on this, then gets to Evan Mobley (26:45), the No. 1 prospect in 2020, finally committing to where his father and brother already are: USC. Now we wait on the No. 2 prospect, who has a family member employed at Oklahoma State, to commit. Cade Cunningham, what's the hold-up? The pod wraps with a cool story on a D-III player with NBA connections who wound up committing to Illinois this week (48:00).

Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander have a 56-minute podcast entirely dedicated to the 2018 NBA Draft, including an opening debate about what is happening with Michael Porter Jr. Is a hip issue now affecting his stock? Norlander says he wouldn't draft him. Parrish is torn. They get into Deandre Ayton's case (is it so convincing?) as the top prospect, and try to predict two top-10 projected picks who will flame out. They also label the players slotted later in the draft who have the best chance to wind up as top 20 pros in this year's crop. That includes a couple of players who went from being lowly ranked in high school to becoming first round draft picks.
