Platitudes and generalities abound

Go figure that Professor Ford would talk in ephemeral circles while talking in vagaries. Super affable. Produces content routinely.

As an aside, frequent guest Tony Jones the sort of analyst that compares Keith van Horn, Croshere, Hansborough, allll to Larry Bird.

Entertaining but

I really enjoy listening to Chad talk about the prospects and the way NBA teams may view them, but I really don’t like the way he does his “big board”. Ranking it based on where teams generally may be drafting guys given his contacts is a great way to both avoid any criticism for getting his evals wrong and also avoid telling us any actual details about the specific interests of any specific team. Take a risk Chad, tell us what you honestly think about each player.

Who’s better than Chad Ford??

Chad does a great job breaking the game of NBA Draft prospects.
