    Episode 78: Matisse Thybulle

    It’s no secret that Matisse Thybulle is a rising star in the NBA, developing into a bonafide defensive stopper in the court. But there’s another part of his game that's pretty damn strong as well - his YouTube game, that is. In this spectacular interview, Matisse shows not only why increasing success in the NBA seems like a forgone conclusion, but also why he will continue to be a winner in life as well. A humble and open individual, he’s very comfortable discussing all aspects of the game, as well as his personal ventures, making it easy to see why he’s well liked and well respected for such a young player. He, JJ and Tommy discuss subjects such as his budding YouTube career, life as a 76’er and dealing with their passionate fans, his draft experience, playing in the bubble, his upbringing, and so much more. Don’t miss this great conversation… all here on the OM3.

    Episode 77: Retirement

    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.

    Episode 76: Michael Porter Jr (featuring Sue Bird)

    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.

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

    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.
