TJ McConnell The Old Man and the Three with JJ Redick and Tommy Alter

    • Sports

Sit back and relax, grab some wine, and order a nice meal because this conversation will surely put you in the mood to do all three. For this episode of the Old Man and the Three, JJ and Tommy welcome in close friend and all around great guy (and Pacers guard, of course) TJ McConnell for an incredibly fun and down to earth EAT PRAY DUNK discussion. They touch on a number of topics, like TJ’s wine obsession and how it came to be, whether or not JJ is a wine snob, and TJ’s favorite food picks. But for diehard hoopers, they also delve into the NBA playoff picture, give breakdowns of Trae Young and Ben Simmons (among others), and discuss what makes a great defensive player (and how TJ was robbed of an All NBA Defensive team pick).
