    Tyronn Lue: The Coaching Series

    Tyronn Lue: The Coaching Series

    We are proud to present a new installment of The Old Man and The Three's 'Coaching Series' where we dive deep into the insights and strategy of the top coaches in basketball. In this episode, we welcome former NBA player, form Head Coach of The NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers and current head coach of The Los Angeles Clippers, Tyronn Lue. Ty Lue has cemented himself as one of the best coaches in The NBA and we are so psyched to share this conversation. Topics include: Ty's brief time playing with JJ Redick in Orlando, how he first got into coaching, what he learned from Doc Rivers in Boston, what he learned from Phil Jackson on The Los Angeles Lakers, why he feels former players are uniquely suited to coach in The NBA, what it was like coaching LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love on The Cleveland Cavaliers, the unique way he inspired and motivated his team when they were down 3-1 to The Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals, coaching Kawhi Leonard on The Los Angeles Clippers, his message to The Clippers going into this season, what he learned from playing with Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan and what makes those guys different from everyone else and of course we had to ask about the iconic Allen Iverson step-over. Also in this episode, JJ and Tommy discuss their initial takaways from the first week of the NBA season and JJ clears the air on a Lakers take that has since been aggregated and criticized.

Show was awesome until having to pay for it. Did jj not make enough as a player and is now having to charge everyday people to listen to a podcast. The insight of getting a former player talking to players and coaches is awesome for fans who really enjoy the NBA. Guess it’s about that bag though…….
