This week’s edition of Assembly Call Radio was recorded while the NBA draft was going on, so we decided to make it our own little IU-themed draft party.
First, we discuss which players on the current roster will someday play in the NBA. Romeo is a lock, Juwan seems probable, but who else? We break down the NBA chances of guys like Justin Smith, Jerome Hunter, Jake Forrester, Damezi Anderson, and more (including Clifton Moore).
Then, we have a little offseason fun.
It’s our own IU basketball draft, in which each of us pick a 7-man roster plus a coach from the last 12 years of IU basketball. We draft live, snake-style, then debate our rosters before turning it over to you to tell us whose team is best. Send us a tweet and let us know.
Here are the final rosters, for reference …
• Starters: Jordan Hulls, Victor Oladipo, Troy Williams, Juwan Morgan, Thomas Bryant
• Bench: Noah Vonleh, Jerome Hunter
• Coach: Tom Crean
• Starters: Eric Gordon, Romeo Langford, Will Sheehey, Christian Watford, Cody Zeller
• Bench: Robert Johnson, Robert Phinisee
• Coach: Dan Dakich
• Starters: Yogi Ferrell, James Blackmon Jr., Zach McRobers, OG Anunoby, DJ White
• Bench: Max Bielfeldt, Nick Zeisloft
• Coach: Archie Miller
Which roster do you think would have the best chance at winning a national title?
Then it’s Q&A time. We answer questions about:
• What do we think of the Crossroads Classic?
• Why isn’t Al Durham getting any love as a potential answer at the point guard slot?
• Is Indiana being underrated in the way-too-early preseason polls, or rated about right?
All of that and more on this week’s edition of Assembly Call Radio.
