Show Notes

Defense is returning in a big way this NBA season and a new generation of star perimeter defenders is carving its path. To discuss this revelation, Ray is joined by Head Coach Adam Spinella of Boys' Latin School (MD) and 'The Box and One.'

The tandem discusses six players: Luguentz Dort (3:58), Matisse Thybulle (5:50), Davion Mitchell (8:38), Gary Payton II (13:11) Devin Vassell (15:40), Jae'Sean Tate (22:59), and Herb Jones (26:12). They close out with a conversation about defensive philosophy, the influence of coaching, and scouting for defense.
