NTTB Podcast (Episode 5) – Talking Terrance Ferguson with Will Crouch

IMG_4109On Episode 5 of the NTTB podcast, I got to interview Will Crouch of 9News Adel in Adelaide, Australia. Will covered the Adelaide 36ers while Terrance Ferguson played for them last season. We discussed the following topics:

  • Australian Rules Football
  • What his feelings are on the Kiwi, Steven Adams
  • NBA players from Down Under
  • Terrance Ferguson’s year in Australia
  • Strengths/Weaknesses
  • And Will Crouch’s hilarious summary of an incident that ended with him being pushed into a glass wall by a South African cricket player. Here’s a video of the incident.

Thank you for listening. If you have any Thunder or NBA related questions, make sure you hit us up on Twitter (@alexroig_NTTB or @Montero_A13).

We are on ITunes under the NTTB Podcast. Make sure you leave us a 5-star review if you can. As always, Thunder Up!

An article looking at Dakari Johnson being a worthwhile investment: “For starters, Johnson has been developing nicely in the Thunder’s pipeline. He has played three seasons in the Summer League with Oklahoma City and in two G-League seasons. Each year he has shown growth and development, especially offensively. Playing for some loaded Kentucky teams, Johnson never had much of a chance to showcase his talents and flourish. But once he joined the Thunder’s organization, that changed. Johnson increased his scoring output from 12.3 points per game in his first season with the Oklahoma City Blue of the G League to 18.5 per game this past season.” Continue reading Daily Thunder Rumblings – 01 August 2017
