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.
