Episode 43: "Eat, Pray, Dunk" with Kevin Love
In this special bonus podcast, JJ and Tommy would like to introduce a brand new segment on the Old Man and the Three called "Eat, Pray, Dunk". This will be a segment that takes a deeper look into the athlete's life with conversations that delve into the cross section of sports, wellness, health, food, wine, and all the other aspects of an NBA player's life that may not be on the forefront of social media and in the public eye. And with that being said, who better to kick off this series than close friend of the pod Kevin Love. As usual, Kevin brings his 'A' game, and not only answers some burning questions and offers some honest and straightforward insight, but challenges JJ and Tommy with some questions of his own.
