Athlete Plus: Adam Flagler

June 8, 2022

One of the best guards in college basketball discusses his plans for the summer as he prepares to try and lead Baylor to another Big12 championship and national title.  

Discussion Notes

  • Adam discusses some of the lessons learned going through the NBA draft process such as the importance of taking care of his body so that he can be at peak production during the season.  Eric Bledsoe was at the same training facility and he was able to glean some wisdom from him.  
  • Adam is taking the month of June to focus on getting his body as strong and prepared for the upcoming season working out in Houston with trainers.  He will be on the trip to Canada with the Baylor team but won’t play for precautionary reasons.  His plan for July is up in the air but the goal is to be ready to go full speed in August (along with LJ Cryer) to prepare for the season ahead.  This will allow some of the younger guards to speed up their development in Canada and during the summer.  
  • We discuss his relationship with Tweety Carter and the importance of promoting an unselfish culture on the basketball team.  He’s excited to have him on staff and to be able to pick his brain on how to be the best PG under Coach Drew because Tweety has walked that path.  
  • Adam discusses his plans for graduation and an internship in the Spring.  He has time capacity as a student for the first time in a long time so he will be able to spend a lot more time on basketball- watching film, honing his craft, etc... 
  • Adam talks about the role of leadership on a roster that includes 6 guys from the national title team two years ago.  He mentions the importance of making sure the chemistry on the team is excellent and how he needs to get everyone involved and engaged on both ends of the court.  
  • We discuss his advanced analytics, 56% at the rim, almost 50% inside the arc but outside the paint and almost 40% from 3 point range.  He answers the question “does Coach Drew give you the green light?”  
  • Adam shares his opinions on fan support and what he likes about Baylor fans.  He loves the opportunity to go thank fans in the student section right after the game.  
  • He shares his renewed appreciation for goal setting and what he wants to accomplish this season.  And why he wants to win not only a Big12 championship, national championship but also a Big12 tournament championship.  
  • Why he wants to beat Texas Tech after getting swept this past year.
