Episode 37: Tyrese Haliburton (featuring Josh Hart)
Play • 1 hr 12 min

​Playing successfully in the NBA is difficult enough, but excelling in the NBA as a rookie can be both a monumental challenge as well as an outer​-body experience. You'll see how both come into play when JJ and Tommy sit down with Sacramento Kings rookie point guard Tyrese Haliburton. He opens up about what it's like being a rookie, his 'welcome to the NBA' moments so far, his R.O.Y. chatter, the uniqueness of the 2020 draft, and much more. It's easy to see that the Kings will be in good hands moving forward on and off the court with Tyrese running the floor. Then, the episode closes out on yet another high note when OM3 favorite Josh Hart joins the show for the TOP 5/Draft.
