I had the chance to chat with Indiana Hoosiers safety Jonathan Crawford about why “work” is his word for this season, a quick chat about Netflix’s Last Chance U series, why he loves playing for Coach Allen, going balls to the wall for a bowl game, and he shares how he blocks out NFL Draft buzz and focuses on his senior season.
Here are some highlights from Kelly Olynyk’s media scrum following Canada’s 97-61 win over the Dominican Republic in a World Cup qualifying game.
Olynyk talked with the media about being part of Canada Basketball during its lean times and what it’s like to play with talented teens in R.J. Barrett and Andrew Nembhard.
This past weekend I had two chances to chat with USA Basketball head coach Bill Self. During the first chat he talked about USA Basketball’s condenses training camp and what being inducted into the Hall of Fame meant to him. During our second chat, he explained what winning the gold medal meant to him and which players stepped up during the tournament.
While I normally only post my questions and answers in Podcasts, I also included a couple of questions asked by other members of the media. In particular, there was a great response and explanation about why Toronto has become home to a large number of the greatest high school basketball players.
