It's a very special episode of the Old Man and the Three this week as JJ and Tommy kick the show off by welcoming in Tyrese Haliburton as their new NBA correspondent. Wise beyond his years, Tyrese will be reporting in to the show often to discuss news and notes around the NBA and, of course, to give his unique take on what's going on behind the scenes. Then, the episode makes a shift to the lighter side when the hilarious SNL legend and new sitcom star Kenan Thompson joins in. Kenan details the quirks behind the SNL curtain and takes a deep dive into his career and how far he has come. He also gives the breakdown of his brand new show on NBC called "Kenan". Then, as if that isn't enough, we go back to Tyrese for the TOP 5 / Draft. It's a packed show that you will not want to miss.
