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!
