Is Drew Hanlen Serious?
He Doesn't Know How Crazy We Are
One thing is clear from the videos that Drew Hanlen released this week, and it's not Markelle Fultz's jumper... it's that Hanlen doesn't know how crazy we all are. Hanlen seems pretty confident, at least publicly, that he's going to fix Fultz. But does he know what's in store for him if he doesn't. Andrew Unterberger goes through all of the if and maybe scenarios of Hanlen, Fultz, and our manic nature. It's a good one. Read it.
You've probably heard that Sacha Baron Cohen is going to release something new that involves him disguising himself as a journalist. This is the one time The Ricky is sort of like Borat. Mike went to Summer League, pretended he was a journalist, and recorded the whole thing. He managed to talk to Jonathan Tjarks from The Ringer, Godner and Hofmann (who don't have a podcast) from The Athletic, James Herbert from CBS Sports, and much, much more. He also talks to Spike and the Fultz videos and the Josh Harris comments. Make sure you listen.
