    Dan "Big Cat" Katz

    Dan "Big Cat" Katz

    Our guest this week is the host of one of the biggest podcasts in the world, Pardon My Take, Dan Katz aka Big Cat. This was originally supposed to be a draft but the conversation was too good so we made it it’s own ep. We’re psyched to share it (get ready to laugh). Topics included: Why Joe Burrow rules, how Luka reminds JJ of Burrow, who should win MVP and why Big Cat doesn’t think it will be Jokic, why sitting players on the second night of a back-to-back game happens and the downside to doing it, how Big Cat doesn’t believe LeBron James should’ve backed Shannon Sharp after he got into it with The Memphis Grizzlies, behind-the-scenes of the success of Pardon My Take and an all-time draft of ‘Sports moments we hope get made into movies one day.’ Get ready for a highly entertaining show!

    Frances Tiafoe and Mikal Bridges

    Frances Tiafoe and Mikal Bridges

    This is a very special episode of The Old Man and The Three podcast with JJ Redick and Tommy Alter. Today we are joined by one of the best tennis players in the world, Frances Tiafoe, and this is one of the coolest conversations we've had on the podcast. Frances talks to us about his incredible backstory and how he got into tennis, beating Rafael Nadal in The US Open and making it all the way to the semifinals. He also discusses the pressures of being a successful American male tennis player and the influence of Venus and Serena Williams. Finally, he talks about his love for The NBA and JJ plays a little game with him where Frances has to compare specific NBA players to specific tennis players. After that, we are joined by OM3 correspondent and Phoenix Suns star, Mikal Bridges. We discuss the Zion 360 Dunk during their game against The New Orleans Pelicans that ignited a "kerfuffle" between players like Chris Paul, Jose Alvarado and Cam Payne. Lastly, we drafted 'People We Most Want To See Cast As James Bond" and if you know anything about Mikal's drafting skills... you know you're in for a treat.

What’s up with Jose’s picture?

I really like your podcast. I’m a Pelicans fan. ( and a Warriors fan) Enjoyed the show with Jose Alvarado but that is not his picture on the info about the show.
Maybe that’s a baseball player with the same name?

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…….
