Show notes

This is a special episode of the Old Man & The Three for a number of reasons. For starters, it’s episode #50! A big shout out to the OM3 listeners for taking this journey with us - many more to come! As for the show itself, JJ starts things off by answering the bell and addressing the big news of his trade to the Dallas Mavericks. Much more to this story than meets the eye obviously, and JJ covers it all. To follow that up, we have two spectacular guests on the show this week in Collin Sexton and Tyrese Haliburton. Sexton, as you’ll come to find out, brings his ‘A’ game because… well that’s what he’s always done - even going back to when he was young a boy asking his mom for an alarm clock so he can practice basketball early. Oh, did we mention he was probably around 7 when that happened? You see where this is going. And Tyrese as you all know, is the OM3 NBA correspondent and brings his usual honesty, humor, humility, as well as some great stories from the floor. Always a must listen. It’s a can’t miss episode from top to bottom.
