Jeremy Woo, NBA Draft Insider at Sports Illustrated

Sports Business Secrets
Season 2 || Episode 401

Today’s guest is Jeremy Woo, staff writer and NBA Draft Insider for Sports Illustrated!


Now typically when Jeremy goes on a podcast, or any NBA Draft analyst for that matter, they are grilled with questions like, "who is going to be the number 1 pick?" or "which players hurt their draft stock the past week?"


Today was a bit different. Of course we touch on some actual draft prospects later in the episode...


But in my opinion, it's more beneficial for you to hear some of the behind the scenes action - in regards to both Jeremy's career journey and what goes on before the story hits the internet!


Today we talked about:

  • How Jeremy grew up and got into sports journalism

  • His career progression throughout the years at Sports Illustrated

  • How important gaining trust is when giving/getting information

  • Differences between the Mock Draft & Best Available Board

  • What characteristics he uses to evaluate talent on court

  • Which off court characteristics help and hurt a player’s stock

  • The debate between drafting the best available vs. the best fit

  • How an NCAA run factors into a players evaluation

  • and much more

Appreciate you tuning in. Hope you enjoy!
