Brian Shaw on Isaiah Todd: Isaiah Todd is, I think, under the radar. I hope that the guys aren’t really paying too much attention to the mock drafts and things of that nature. There have been a lot of them that I haven’t seen his name on at all. I can’t imagine that there would be 30 to 60 guys that are better than him when you watch him and his skill set as a 6-foot-9, almost 6-foot-10, young player.
Brian Shaw: You get to train. You’re surrounded by staff that has been on being a part of NBA teams from our trainers, our strength and conditioning coach, from our assistant coaches to myself, as well as Strickland and Abdur-Rahim, the president of the G League, that they can lean on and spend the majority of the time preparing. You don’t have to go to class. You’re getting paid a pretty significant salary. If you choose the college route, unless you’re getting paid illegally, you’re not in that same category in terms of being compensated for what you’re doing on a daily basis. That’s preparing you for what’s coming next and giving you a jumpstart on the business of basketball. Much like a lot of international players that go to academies and things of that nature and play professional ball from their teenage years on, they have an opportunity to do that, and just really concentrate on the game. But at the same time, they take courses and things every day, from financial literacy to mental health, to death and dying, to the business of basketball, and they’re talking to professionals in all of those fields.
