Jarrett also explains how the Cavs had an amazing record when Darius Garland and Evan Mobley with both injured.

Portland Trail Blazers Superstar, Damian Lillard for our 150th episode. This is a TRULY special conversation that we hope you all enjoy as much as we did. Topics include: Dame's historic scoring stretch and how it was birthed out of necessity, how he attacks drop coverage and other defensive schemes, why he isn't totally satisfied with his 71 point game, if he believes anyone in The NBA can score 100 points in a game, his unique shooting technique that allows him to confidently pull-up from deep, how he feels The NBA has changed with the 3-point revolution and when he felt comfortable to start taking 10 a game, why he feels the NBA's de-emphasis on veterans is hurting the game, how he feels the NBA is changing for the worse and how he finds peace in all the discourse/noise, why he also feels 'rings culture' is cheapening the game, what he personally defines as a 'successful career', the reality of why he's choosing the NBA path he's currently on instead of joining a super team, reliving his game winners against The Houston Rockets and The Oklahoma City Thunder and so much more.

Other topics include: Being drafted by The San Antonio Spurs and what he learned playing for Gregg Popovich, getting traded from The San Antonio Spurs to The Boston Celtics, what it's actually like for NBA players during the 24-48 hours right after getting traded, trying to fit into The Boston Celtics offense, what it's like playing with Jayson Tatum, marveling over Tatum's playoff performance last season and pinpointing the subtle changes he's made to his game this season that's made him even more of a thread, Derrick shares just how awesome Joe Mazzulla has been as the Celtics head coach in light of all the moving parts, what Marcus Smart is really like off the court, just what exactly is making this Celtics team so good right now and so much more.

Episode 125: Jalen Brunson

There are life changing moments in sports... and there are life changing moments in life itself. Jalen Brunson has recently experienced both with one crucial decision, as he signed a big contract to play center stage for the New York Knicks. Money from the new contract? Sure, that's life changing. Calling Madison Square Garden your home and satisfying Knick fans? That's your life changing sports moment. Only time will tell if the latter of those two statements comes true, but listening to Jalen speak, it's easy to come away with a healthy dose of confidence that he will get the job done on every level. In this conversation, Jalen shows the personal insight and basketball IQ that makes him so special on and off the court. And that should be music to every Knicks fan's ears.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 121: Kendrick Perkins

Wow. Sometimes there's not much more you can say than just... wow. On the court, Kendrick Perkins was a fierce competitor who backed down from no one. As a member of the media? Well, he's pretty much the same. There's really no subject that is off limits and there is virtually no team, player, or media member he won't take on. Which is a big reason why this interview is so damn good. Perk just tells it like it is, plain and simple. He speaks the truth as he sees it, and if it ruffles some feathers along the way, then so be it. It's part of the reason JJ and Tommy have been working long and hard to get him on the show, and now that he finally made it on, boy does he deliver. Sit back and enjoy.

Episode 120: Grant Hill

It's not often that you hear of a player who suffered a devastating injury that radically changed his physical ability (an injury that also basically broke new medical ground along the way), but still went on to have a successful career. Well, how about one that did just that and is in the hall of fame? Enter Grant Hill. The former Duke legend and NBA HOF member joins JJ and Tommy for an incredible discussion that covers just about everything he went through during his career. From his days at Duke and the iconic full court pass to Christian Laettner to beat Kentucky, the relationships with Laettner and Hurley during those championship runs, all the way through his NBA career and what it was like to be considered the next MJ, and the difficult road he had to travel to get through the demoralizing and crushing ankle injury that nearly ended his career. The conversation is just like Grant himself - real, honest, humble, and outstanding.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 118: Gary Payton and Mikal Bridges

If you're an NBA fan, then you know exactly who we're talking about when the words "The Glove" are uttered. That's right, on the pod today is NBA Hall of Famer and one of the greatest defensive players to step on the court, Mr. Gary Payton. He discusses his career in full detail - from making the jump from a draft disappointment to an elite player, his journey to try and win that elusive ring, his presence on and off the court and what made him such a special talent. He also breaks down his partnership with Hennessy and their "Unfinished Business" campaign to help small businesses as part of the NBA 75th Anniversary. Now, you would think that's enough, but there's even more great conversation to cover as NBA correspondent Mikal Bridges joins the program as well. He starts everything off by addressing the Suns devastating playoff exit to the Mavs and tries to make sense of what went wrong. Then, after the Payton interview, he returns for the OM3 draft, which focuses on the "Top 5 dishes served at chain restaurants". It's a can't miss double shot on the OM3.

Episode 116: Trae Young Darth Vader. The Joker. The Terminator. Trae Young? Hey, being a villain isn't easy, but some people just do it so damn well. Enter Trae Young. He'll drain a three from the logo, tell the defender how good he looked doing it, all the while giving the crowd a little shimmy just to drive home the point. On the court, he fears no one and seems to relish the villain role. But has it always been that way? In this wide ranging interview, you'll learn much more about Trae Young than his edge on the court. He delves into topics such as how he creates so much offense for a relatively small NBA frame, or how he reacted the first time the vitriol really started raining down from the stands, or what really gets him going on the floor. Plus, the guys dig deep into the X's and O's of the game and nerd out for a while as well. It's an outstanding interview that shows you a side of Trae that people don't often see.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 115: Jose Alvarado

What makes a good player? To the casual NBA fan, oftentimes the bottom line is scoring. And let's be honest... many of the top players in the game are indeed elite scorers. But if you look a little closer, and you know the game well, you know that so many other aspects of the game are just as important. And if you can find a player that does the little things - whether it's taking a charge, diving for a loose ball, coming up with a key defensive stop - chances are you have yourself a winner. Well, Jose Alvarado does ALL of those things, and combines all of it with an atomic force of energy that gives opponents fits, and his teammates confidence. Jose joins JJ and Tommy for this incredibly humble interview and shows what makes him so special on and off the court.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Ok let's be honest, there are some basketball conversations - whether it be on TV, podcast or whatever - that just don't deliver anything concrete or new. Well, it's pretty much an ironclad lock that today's episode of the OM3 won't leave you feeling that way. That's because joining the pod is former NBA 10 year vet and current ESPN and Sirius XM NBA analyst Tim Legler, and the sheer amount of hoops talk that is covered is staggering. From a complete breakdown of the playoffs thus far, to Legler's playing career, what it was like playing in the 90's, the evolution of the game, social media pitfalls, Kobe and MJ, and more, there isn't much that wasn't discussed. An amazing pod for any hooper, especially with the playoffs in full swing. Don’t miss it.

Episode 110: Mike D'Antoni (Coaching Series #4)

Mike D'Antoni is synonymous with coaching. It's hard to imagine him anywhere else but roaming the court in front of an NBA bench. Accolades? There are plenty. We all know his history and what he's done for the game. But as much as you think you know about Mike D'Antoni the coach, it's pretty certain you don't know all there is to know about Mike D'Antoni the man. Or Mike D'Antoni the player. In this 4th installment of the OM3 Coaching Series, presented by Future, you'll learn so much more than just what this legendary coach did on the court. Displaying a personality that reeks of humbleness and honesty, D'Antoni details his career and accomplishments in a way that few would expect from a man of his stature. It's a truly outstanding interview that will surely open your eyes to a different view of a man who has dedicated his life to the game of basketball.

Episode 109: Bam Adebayo

There are all kinds of scary things in life... death, taxes, etc. - take your pick. But I would imagine one of the scariest things an NBA player can encounter is the prospect of driving down the lane and coming face to face with Bam Adebayo. At that point, the chances of success are pretty slim, with the most likely outcome being the ball ending up somewhere in the second row. And given the fact that he doesn't care whether you're a 1,2,3,4, or a 5, escape is not an option. Well thankfully, an interview with Bam is quite the opposite. He joins JJ and Tommy on this episode of the OM3 for an open and entertaining conversation about all things Bam - his defense, his early years, the Heat culture, playing for John Calipari, the bubble run, and so much more.

The best way to describe a great interview is with an analogy. Imagine yourself at a restaurant, and the table next to you is having the most incredible conversation. And all the while, you're listening and quietly taking in all the great information that is going back and forth. Now imagine it with four guys talking hoops and breaking down some of the most intricate basketball info you've ever heard. Oh and one more thing... one of those guys is a recently retired 15 year NBA veteran who has seen and heard it all, and another one just happens to be one of the best basketball players on the entire planet. Yep, that's today's episode on the OM3 as JJ and Tommy join forces with The ETC's podcast, which is hosted by Kevin Durant and Eddy Gonzalez, for an absurd hoops conversation that is loaded with unique and personal basketball info.

Episode 107: Joel Embiid

It’s no secret that JJ is very close friends with Joel Embiid. They go back several years and have formed a very tight bond on and off the court. It’s also no secret that Joel Embiid is a monster on the court and is enjoying a spectacular season, which could lead to him taking home the MVP. But besides all of that, he’s also a fantastic interview, as he has gone head to head with JJ and Tommy multiple times before, always bringing his 'A' game to keep the fellas on their toes. Well, this time is no different… except that it is. Because not only do you get a great interview, but a new OM3 approach as well. In showing him handpicked video highlights, JJ has Joel breakdown four integral aspects of his game, forcing him to give his own inside scoop as to how these very important parts of his game come to life. All that and, of course, the occasional haymakers that Embiid and JJ toss back and forth at each other.

Episode 105: Luka Dončić and Alex Caruso

Luka. Dončić. Need we say more? While watching him on the court often leaves us all wondering "is there anything this guy doesn't do??", there IS one thing that he hasn't done that much of at all. Interviews. Well, at least not like the kind you'll hear on this episode of the OM3. Luka joins JJ and Tommy for a sit down discussion and quickly shows us all that there is much more to him than just his incredible basketball skills. Displaying a sharp, sarcastic wit and humor, Dončić dives in to several topics, including the Mavs red-hot run over the last half of the season, his matchups with the game's other elite players, comparing NBA players to EuroLeague stars, his days of hooping for Real Madrid, and much more. It's a special discussion with someone you certainly don't hear a lot from so don't miss this one. But, that's not all. In fact there's much more that follows as new OM3 correspondent Alex Caruso joins the pod to catch us up on his injury, the Bulls march into the playoffs, and also participates in the Top 5/Draft, which focuses on the 'best March Madness plays that you would have liked to have witnessed in the arena'. So, bottom line, it's a power packed episode of the OM3.     To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 104: Willie Green (Coaching Series #3)

Some people are just made for certain jobs. They meet the criteria so well that it just seems like a perfect fit. To go a step further, often times others who are close to this person can see the scenario playing out even before the individual can see it him or herself. And if you were to ask JJ directly, he'd likely admit that he knew Willie Green belonged in the NBA coaching ranks probably before Willie did. In this third installment of the OM3 Coaching Series, you find out how it all came to be. Going back through the years when JJ and Willie used to play hypothetical NBA GM's, it was pretty obvious that Green had a place in the game after his playing days were over. And that's just what he's done, as he's weathered the New Orleans Pelicans through a potentially disastrous 1-12 start to the season, all the way to a potential 'Play-In Tournament" appearance. Along the way he has garnered a whole lot of respect, admiration, and a few "Coach of the Year" rumblings as well. Pretty impressive for a guy who seems to be just getting started.

Episode 103: Pat Beverley

On the court, there are players who bring it... and then there are players who BRING it. Pat Beverley is one of those players. Backed by his tenacious defense - and an equally tenacious personality - Beverley is widely recognized as a premier defender in the NBA. But that aggressive approach isn't just limited to the court. In this spectacular in-your-face interview, you will quickly realize that when Pat Beverley wants to say something, he's going to say it - damn the consequences. The reason he can do this? Well, that's easy...the man can back it up. Join JJ and Tommy as they head straight into the storm with "Mr. 94 Feet". Trust us when we say, you won't be disappointed.

Episode 102: Matt Barnes and Mikal Bridges

It's not often in life that we're lucky enough to get something good for no cost at all. But here at the OM3, that rule doesn't really apply. Take today's episode for instance... it has not one but two great guests, and all you have to do is listen. Leading things off is very close friend and former teammate - as well as OG pod host - Matt Barnes. Now, it's no secret to anyone that Matt speaks his mind and takes no prisoners, and this discussion is certainly no different. Imagine yourself sitting at a bar and listening in to a conversation between NBA players in the next booth... that's the vibe for this one, no doubt. Then, as if that wasn't enough, JJ and Tommy welcome in the OM3's brand new correspondent - Mikal Bridges of the Phoenix Suns. He joins the show for some playoff talk, a little music discussion, and the Top 5 Draft. And if there was ever a draft that went off the rails in a hurry, this one is it. The finger is pointed at you, Mr Bridges.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 100: Jayson Tatum

If you're looking for a breather from all the great interviews lately, you might want to up your game a bit because the OM3 train just keeps rolling. JJ and Tommy celebrate the Old Man & the Three's 100th episode with yet another spectacular discussion with one of the game's very best - Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics. Jayson actually visited the show way back in August for the pod's 4th episode, and while he's still the same outstanding player he was then, a lot has changed with him, the Celtics, and the NBA overall during that time. Jayson really digs into and breaks down some hot button topics, while also displaying the attributes that make him such a special player on and off the court. Oh, and there's also some talk on the Duke brotherhood and where the program might be headed now that Coach K is leaving. Don't miss this great conversation... and start getting ready for the next 100.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 99: Marcus Smart (Live Show from the Crystal Ballroom in Boston)

Let's face it... The OM3 live shows are fire. They're a perfect combination of great guests, great atmosphere, and a whole lot of fun. But the unfortunate aspect of having a live show in a specific city, is that only a select few get to experience it first hand. But thankfully, the boys always remember to hit the record button for these special occasions, and we're happy to share the latest OM3 event that took place this past Wednesday, live from the Crystal Ballroom in Boston. Marcus Smart of the hometown Celtics joins the crew for an amazing night of laughs, a bit of trash talk, some brutal honestly, and good ol' fashioned hoops x's and o's. It was a fantastic night on every level, and you can catch it all right here without getting out of your seat. Enjoy.

Episode 98: Desmond Bane

We've seen the story before right? An underrated player comes out of college, somehow hits another level in the pros, and then surprises everyone en route to becoming an NBA star. But what about the guy who hardly got a sniff in the recruiting game coming out of HIGH SCHOOL? Quite simply, that basketball story usually ends right there. Well, don't tell that to Desmond Bane, because getting overlooked coming out of high school only lit his fire to succeed even more. After paving his way through a solid career at TCU, he has taken the proverbial 'next level' leap in the NBA and has become a bonafide force for the Memphis Grizzlies. Teaming with Ja Morant and company, they've got the Grizzlies well on their way to creating some major havoc in the playoffs. Listen in as Desmond discusses his rise to the top, his struggles with the recruiting game, how his body type is the antithesis of the typical NBA shooter, whether or not he believes the Grizzlies can win a chip this season, and so much more.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 97: Chris Paul 2

So... last week when Draymond Green visited the show, there were an awful lot of superlatives being thrown around. And why not? It was an incredible interview that was certainly deserving of high praise. Well, if this week proves anything, it’s that you can never have enough superlatives when it comes to the OM3, because joining the show this week is yet another surefire first ballot Hall of Famer, Chris Paul. And even though CP3 and JJ are the closest of friends and have gone through just about everything together on the court and off, this discussion has Chris breaking new ground on several topics. To say this conversation was spectacular on every level is an understatement. Once again, it’s a can’t miss interview on the OM3, so sit back and enjoy the ride.

Episode 96: Draymond Green

Hype. It's all around us - in sports, in business, and generally all throughout our everyday lives. But seldom does the anticipation of an event or product live up to its potential, often leaving us disappointed or wanting more. This... is not one of those times. In what can already be pointed to as one of the top interviews ever on the Old Man & the Three, JJ and Tommy welcomed in the one and only Draymond Green for a spectacular discussion on basketball, life, and everything in between. Never one to shy away from his opinion or passion, Draymond tells it only as he can, leaving zero room for doubt or misinterpretation. It's a unique conversation that you will surely enjoy and appreciate just as much as his game on the court.

Episode 95: Kevin Love

Let's be honest, one of the aspects that makes the interviews on the OM3 so great is the fact that JJ and Tommy often cause the guest to dig a little deeper to answer questions and roll a bit out of their comfort zone. But somehow when Kevin Love joins the podcast, there's no need to try and pull info out of him or force delicate subjects into the mix because... well, he does that all by himself. And as usual, this interview is no different. Kevin displays his typical intelligence, humor, sarcastic wit, and basic down to earth nature as he digs into his current season with the Cavs and opens up about the team's past, present, and future. Oh, he also sticks around for the OM3 draft as they break down the worst things you can do on an airplane. Hmmm... I sense a campaign for OM3 correspondent coming on.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 94: Dawn Staley (Coaching Series #2)

As you go through the coaching ranks, you see all different types of personalities. On one end of the spectrum you have the coaches who have mastered the art of "coach speak", where they are able to get by with few words, even fewer emotions, and with what many would call a vanilla approach. Then, all the way on the other side of the spectrum you have... well, you have Dawn Staley. Never one to mince words, emotions, or temper her fiery personality, Staley has brought success and pride wherever she has gone - both on the court and controlling the sidelines. Coming from a person who didn't see herself as a coach, it's hard to imagine the game without her presence on the bench. From turning around a Temple program - while still starring in the WNBA as an all star point guard - to taking South Carolina to the pinnacle of the NCAA universe with the 2017 Championship, Staley has done it all. Don't miss a chance to listen to her incredible journey as she joins the show for this second installment of the "Coaching Series" on the Old Man & the Three.   To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

It’s a double shot of entertainment on this week’s Old Man & the Three as JJ and Tommy welcome in not one but two stars in Josh Hart and Jalen Brunson. After opening his home and having JJ live in his house for a large part of last year, (and also hounding him and Tommy for his chance on the big stage), close friend Hart kicks things off as he finally gets his shot to be the lead guest on the OM3. And deservedly so, as he brings his humor and intelligence to the table for a fantastic interview. He also has some comments on the size of the following guest’s head, but that’s beside the point. (You’ll understand when you hear it). Then, another friend of the pod Jalen Brunson joins the show for the return of the OM3 draft to give his take on the most unrealistic sports plays in movie history. Just like his game on the court, Jalen doesn’t disappoint.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 92: Nick Nurse (Coaching Series #1)

2021 was a great year for the Old Man & the Three as many of the NBA's brightest stars joined JJ and Tommy to present an intimate look at the players who make the league such an incredible force. But along with the NBA stars, there were also interviews that took a step outside the box to shed light on the different aspects of our society, business, and life in general. Those were encompassed in the OM3 Leadership series where the likes of Bob Iger, Stacey Abrams, Ben Winston and many more paid visits to the show. Now, to open 2022, we step forward with a new look at the league with the "Coaching Series", which will focus on specific coaches from around the NBA - and maybe some other sports as well. Who knows who will show up... that's part of the fun. And to kick things off for the first installment, JJ and Tommy welcome in Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse for an incredible interview where he breaks down his coaching journey and how he reached the top, what intangibles make a great coach, motivation in players, the preparation it takes to succeed, and so much more.

Episode 91: John Collins

For many NBA players, the ‘hoops' road to the NBA is often bracketed in a similar framework. Meaning, eyes were on them from a relatively early age, they were highly touted high school standouts from a strong program, and then expanded on that path in college and transitioned to the pros. But as we saw last week with Georges Niang, that’s not always the case. And that can certainly be said about John Collins, the guest on today’s OM3. Raised in a military family, Collins moved plenty growing up and although a basketball was always in his hands, he flew a bit under the radar. That is, until he got to Wake Forest and his game exploded. John breaks down his journey to the league in this honest and down to earth interview, and also touches on several other topics, including his recent posterizing dunk on Niang, what it actually feels like to be that high in the air, the present Covid situation in the NBA, and much more.  Editor's note: There will be no OM3 pod next week for the holiday break. JJ, Tommy and everyone at ThreeFourTwo productions and Cadence13 wish all of you a joyous and healthy holiday season and a safe and happy new year.

They cover a bunch of really solid listener questions from around the globe that has them scrambling a bit at times to find some good answers. But the fun doesn't stop there as the show then pivots to a great interview with Philadelphia 76’er Georges Niang. Similar to Haliburton in that he’s great guy on and off the court, Georges discusses several different topics and shows why he’s a respected and well liked player in the league. Don’t miss this episode of the OM3.

Episode 89: Joe Ingles

If you’re an OM3 regular, you know very well that JJ is not afraid to bust on his fellow players and break some major chops. And if you know that, then you also know there’s one player who has taken more heat from JJ than anyone else. I mean, let’s face it… there aren’t many episodes where Joe Ingles name doesn’t come up at one point or another, and suffice it to say the comments aren’t loaded with sunshine and rainbows. But if you listen a little closer, you become keenly aware that it's all in fun and comes from a place of great friendship. Well, finally, the time has come for JJ to face his so-called “nemesis” as Joe joins the show for an amazing discussion that bounces from hilarity to deep and thoughtful discussion. And that’s what makes Joe Ingles so special. You may start out hating him, but invariably you end up loving him - especially if he’s on your team.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Pause for a moment and imagine this scenario. You’re a teenager from another country, and someone says “hey, I want to introduce you to a game. It’s called basketball.” You pick up the ball and begin to play. Then fast forward 7 years down the road (a virtual blink of an eye in an athlete’s life), and you’re not only good at the game, you’re a superior talent. And you’re now playing in the world’s greatest basketball league, the NBA. Oh, and one more thing, you’re an All-Star as well. Wait, what? Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? Well, that’s pretty much exactly how it played out for Pascal Siakam, the former Camaroon teenager and present Toronto Raptors all star forward. His story is almost too crazy to believe, but he breaks it all down for you on today’s Old Man and the Three. In this incredible interview, Pascal not only tells the story of how his hoops career came about, but he also covers where things stand now with the Raptors, what it was like winning a chip, his relationship with his late father, and so much more. A true can’t miss interview.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 77: Retirement

All good things must come to an end. It’s a cliche thats used often but rarely does it hold its true meaning. This, however, is not one of those instances. On this special episode of the Old Man and the Three, it is with a heavy heart that JJ Redick - after 15 years of excellence in the NBA, two national player of the year awards during a spectacular four year college career at Duke, and a state championship at Cave Spring High School in Roanoke - is finally calling it a game. Yes, you read that correctly, JJ Redick is retiring. In this candid, honest, and humbling statement, JJ addresses the people closest to him - his family, friends and fans - to explain the reasoning behind his decision and also offers a glimpse of what may lie ahead for him as he takes the next step of his journey.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 76: Michael Porter Jr (featuring Sue Bird)

Michael Porter Jr. has always had the talent and drive to dominate with the ball in his hands, but injuries sometimes have a way of being the equalizer on whether or not that talent translates to success on the court. Well, it seems any questions that might have lingered have been put to rest as MPJ has taken his game to a new level over the last two seasons. And in this interview, it’s easy to see why as he speaks well beyond his years and touches on both the difficulties and successes he has encountered on his hoops journey. Following that up, JJ and Tommy welcome in OM3 correspondent and favorite Sue Bird to tackle another Top5/Draft. This may be the one that gets JJ off his recent slide as Tommy reaches for some highly questionable picks, putting the onus on Sue to come through in the clutch. Who knows how it will play out.   RUNDOWN On how great Denver and its fans are What was his motivation to start his own podcast  ON the atmosphere of playing the bubble last year How his game took a leap during that time. What clicked Does he look back at the bubble as his turning point Discusses playing on the same AAU team with Trae Young in High School  On having the freedom to play the game your way When did feel playing the NBA was a possibility With all the talent in his family, what were those backyard games like On former players telling AAU players that most of them won’t make it If he were in high school now, would his decision be to go to college or somewhere else On what it was like being home schooled How he dealt with the injuries he suffered along the way What was draft night like dealing with the unknown because of his injury What was his first impression of Nikola Jokic TOP 5/DRAFT with Sue Bird “Top 5 fictional bands or musicians you would want to see in concert" To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 73: Brook and Robin Lopez (featuring Mina Kimes and Shea Serrano)

Ok, we here at the Old Man and the Three don't usually toot our own horn, but we feel each OM3 interview is pretty damn entertaining. However, with that being said, JJ and Tommy reach some rarified air with this episode as they welcome in the Lopez brothers (Brook and Robin) to discuss everything from childhood fights, being teammates in the NBA, beating up NBA mascots, not being able to room together because their cats don't get along, and so much more. Honestly, it almost seems as though JJ and Tommy might have been able to sit this one out and just let Brook and Robin hash everything out for themselves. I mean, after all, Robin did punch Brook in the face when they were sleeping in bunk beds as kids. So, to say it was an entertaining interview is quite the understatement. Now, you would think that would be enough for one episode, but there's more. Joining the show for the OM3 Top 5/Draft is the lovely and talented Mina Kimes... and the equally lovely and talented Shea Serrano. Both add their incredible wit and humor to the draft, which focuses on "the top 5 fictional schools you would like to have attended". Get your pen and paper ready... it's go time.

Anyone who listens to the Old Man and the Three knows that Jrue Holiday is not only a great player, but he’s also a very close friend of the pod and is universally known as ‘one of the good guys’ - on and off the court. And there’s no denying that he’s had a great career thus far. However, the last two months have brought his life and career to a completely new level, as he brought home an NBA Championship and then followed that up with a gold medal with Team USA in the Olympics. Suffice it say, things have changed just a bit, and thats what Jrue discusses today on the pod. It’s an incredible listen as he gives his account of the last couple months and what it was like going through these two unique and life changing experiences. Then, as if that isn’t entertaining enough, the OM3 crew welcomes in Chris Long to the pod for a draft that is sure to ruffle a lot of music feathers out there when they debate the "musical acts you would least like to be stuck in a festival crowd for”. Lots of options here… who knows how this one ends up.   To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

But tune in next week for an extra special draft with two guests that is easily one of the craziest OM3 drafts so far.   RUNDOWN • What's it's like to be named an all-star • Does he set goals for himself • Does he pay attention to the accolades and records that he's set this season • Did he have any other plans for all-star weekend (dunk contest??) • Has he spoken to B.I. about not making the ASG • Talk about players who got snubbed  • Discusses the improvement in Lonzo Ball's game • Dealing with negative comments on social media • Breaks down his progression as a player • Talking some X's and O's about the N.O. offense • At what point in high school did he get his handle • Talk about the viral video of the small kid fouling Zion in HS • Who are some of the people he has really enjoyed playing against • How the superstars can make good defense moot • What parts of his game does he feel needs improvement • On working with Fred Vinson on his shot • Looks back at his 17 in a row against the Spurs in his first game • Does he feel the game is different without fans • Has this season been more fun for him  • Is he following the Top Shot mania right now • JJ asks Zion about his poetry skills To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.
