Episode 116: Trae Young
Episode 116: Trae Young Darth Vader. The Joker. The Terminator. Trae Young? Hey, being a villain isn't easy, but some people just do it so damn well. Enter Trae Young. He'll drain a three from the logo, tell the defender how good he looked doing it, all the while giving the crowd a little shimmy just to drive home the point. On the court, he fears no one and seems to relish the villain role. But has it always been that way? In this wide ranging interview, you'll learn much more about Trae Young than his edge on the court. He delves into topics such as how he creates so much offense for a relatively small NBA frame, or how he reacted the first time the vitriol really started raining down from the stands, or what really gets him going on the floor. Plus, the guys dig deep into the X's and O's of the game and nerd out for a while as well. It's an outstanding interview that shows you a side of Trae that people don't often see.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 115: Jose Alvarado
What makes a good player? To the casual NBA fan, oftentimes the bottom line is scoring. And let's be honest... many of the top players in the game are indeed elite scorers. But if you look a little closer, and you know the game well, you know that so many other aspects of the game are just as important. And if you can find a player that does the little things - whether it's taking a charge, diving for a loose ball, coming up with a key defensive stop - chances are you have yourself a winner. Well, Jose Alvarado does ALL of those things, and combines all of it with an atomic force of energy that gives opponents fits, and his teammates confidence. Jose joins JJ and Tommy for this incredibly humble interview and shows what makes him so special on and off the court.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 114: Tim Legler
Ok let's be honest, there are some basketball conversations - whether it be on TV, podcast or whatever - that just don't deliver anything concrete or new. Well, it's pretty much an ironclad lock that today's episode of the OM3 won't leave you feeling that way. That's because joining the pod is former NBA 10 year vet and current ESPN and Sirius XM NBA analyst Tim Legler, and the sheer amount of hoops talk that is covered is staggering. From a complete breakdown of the playoffs thus far, to Legler's playing career, what it was like playing in the 90's, the evolution of the game, social media pitfalls, Kobe and MJ, and more, there isn't much that wasn't discussed. An amazing pod for any hooper, especially with the playoffs in full swing. Don’t miss it. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

Episode 113: Ben Stiller
After an incredible and historic OM3 run of NBA guests, things get turned around a bit on this episode of the Old Man & the Three. The guest is still outstanding in every way - that doesn't change - but his job description is a little different in that he's one of Hollywood's finest actors and comedians, as well as an award winning producer and director. Ladies and gentleman, the OM3 welcomes Ben Stiller. After a long wait, JJ and Tommy finally get to sit down with the comedy giant to discuss his career, as well as his love for basketball and the Knicks, what it's like working with the icons of Hollywood, his best and worst performances, his current projects, and so much more.

Episode 110: Mike D'Antoni (Coaching Series #4)
Mike D'Antoni is synonymous with coaching. It's hard to imagine him anywhere else but roaming the court in front of an NBA bench. Accolades? There are plenty. We all know his history and what he's done for the game. But as much as you think you know about Mike D'Antoni the coach, it's pretty certain you don't know all there is to know about Mike D'Antoni the man. Or Mike D'Antoni the player. In this 4th installment of the OM3 Coaching Series, presented by Future, you'll learn so much more than just what this legendary coach did on the court. Displaying a personality that reeks of humbleness and honesty, D'Antoni details his career and accomplishments in a way that few would expect from a man of his stature. It's a truly outstanding interview that will surely open your eyes to a different view of a man who has dedicated his life to the game of basketball. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

Episode 109: Bam Adebayo
There are all kinds of scary things in life... death, taxes, etc. - take your pick. But I would imagine one of the scariest things an NBA player can encounter is the prospect of driving down the lane and coming face to face with Bam Adebayo. At that point, the chances of success are pretty slim, with the most likely outcome being the ball ending up somewhere in the second row. And given the fact that he doesn't care whether you're a 1,2,3,4, or a 5, escape is not an option. Well thankfully, an interview with Bam is quite the opposite. He joins JJ and Tommy on this episode of the OM3 for an open and entertaining conversation about all things Bam - his defense, his early years, the Heat culture, playing for John Calipari, the bubble run, and so much more.

Episode 108: The ETCs w/ Kevin Durant and Eddy Gonzalez
The best way to describe a great interview is with an analogy. Imagine yourself at a restaurant, and the table next to you is having the most incredible conversation. And all the while, you're listening and quietly taking in all the great information that is going back and forth. Now imagine it with four guys talking hoops and breaking down some of the most intricate basketball info you've ever heard. Oh and one more thing... one of those guys is a recently retired 15 year NBA veteran who has seen and heard it all, and another one just happens to be one of the best basketball players on the entire planet. Yep, that's today's episode on the OM3 as JJ and Tommy join forces with The ETC's podcast, which is hosted by Kevin Durant and Eddy Gonzalez, for an absurd hoops conversation that is loaded with unique and personal basketball info. It's an outstanding listen from start to finish. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

Episode 107: Joel Embiid
It’s no secret that JJ is very close friends with Joel Embiid. They go back several years and have formed a very tight bond on and off the court. It’s also no secret that Joel Embiid is a monster on the court and is enjoying a spectacular season, which could lead to him taking home the MVP. But besides all of that, he’s also a fantastic interview, as he has gone head to head with JJ and Tommy multiple times before, always bringing his 'A' game to keep the fellas on their toes. Well, this time is no different… except that it is. Because not only do you get a great interview, but a new OM3 approach as well. In showing him handpicked video highlights, JJ has Joel breakdown four integral aspects of his game, forcing him to give his own inside scoop as to how these very important parts of his game come to life. All that and, of course, the occasional haymakers that Embiid and JJ toss back and forth at each other.
