Sports Bash Saturday REWIND (May 17): Chip Kelly’s Advantage, Michael Carter-Williams’ Future, Dante Exum’s Ceiling, Mark Helfrich and Chad Ford Join the Show
Here's what you missed on the Sports Bash Saturday with Matt Hammond on May 17:
-- Pushing back the NFL Draft 2 weeks means coaches have less time with players -- a huge advantage for Chip Kelly and the Eagles.
-- I get why Michael Sam would sign onto a reality series before checking with the Rams. But Oprah, Sam's agents -- they should know better.
Mark Helfrich, Oregon head football coach
-- Working for 3 years under Chip Kelly
-- Coaching Eagles draft picks Josh Huff and Taylor Hart
-- Marcus Mariota's NFL future
-- How the Ducks stack up in the Pac-12
-- If only fans crushing Michael Sam for doing a reality series had so much self-control.
-- Fear of the unknown the reason fans won't listen to Michael Carter-Williams trade talk.
Chad Ford, ESPN NBA Insider
-- Is Michael Carter-Williams untouchable?
-- What would Sixers have to get back to trade MCW?
-- Is Australia's Dante Exum an upgrade over MCW?
-- Should Sixers draft Andrew Wiggins No. 1 overall?
-- Should Sixers trade out of a top 3 pick if they get it?
-- Are we scared to say Eagles will be better in 2014 -- on both sides of the ball?
