ATH Live: Prospect rankings, Filippo Barresi

James and Chase are joined by Italian Filippo Barresi.

NBA: Preseason-Boston Celtics at Charlotte Hornets Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

At The Hive writers Chase Whitney and James Plowright are back for episode three. This week, they discuss The Athletic’s Sam Vecenie’s NBA team prospect rankings in which the Hornets were seventh in the league, and then they make their own rankings and discuss the impact and development of each young player so far, and how they project as future members of the Hornets before ending the episode with an interview with Filippo Barresi.

Interview topics:

-How Filippo became a Hornets fan living in Italy

-His thoughts on the rookies (LaMelo, Carey Jr., Richards, Riller, Darling)

-The things that have surprised him the most/least about the Hornets this season

-Gordon Hayward’s All-Star chances

-Bold prediction for the rest of the season

-Best moment so far as a Hornets fan

Chase and James will be taking mailbag questions from Hornets fans at any point. If you have a question or topic you’d like to hear discussed, send it to or comment on this post and it’ll likely be discussed on the next episode. Again, any feedback listeners have is welcome and constructive criticism is appreciated. We want this show to be as good and fun to listen to as possible and are willing to make changes/adapt on the fly.
