Episode 137: Derrick White and Mina Kimes

The Old Man and The Three is back with two amazing interviews. First up we have Boston Celtics guard, Derrick White. If you haven't heard Derrick's story then be prepared to start cheering for this guy because he has one of the most unique NBA journeys we've ever heard. First he talks about being a 5'6" freshman in high school — unrecruited and undersized to first round draft pick in The NBA Draft. He talks about his college journey and paying off student loans WHILE playing in The NBA. Other topics include: Being drafted by The San Antonio Spurs and what he learned playing for Gregg Popovich, getting traded from The San Antonio Spurs to The Boston Celtics, what it's actually like for NBA players during the 24-48 hours right after getting traded, trying to fit into The Boston Celtics offense, what it's like playing with Jayson Tatum, marveling over Tatum's playoff performance last season and pinpointing the subtle changes he's made to his game this season that's made him even more of a thread, Derrick shares just how awesome Joe Mazzulla has been as the Celtics head coach in light of all the moving parts, what Marcus Smart is really like off the court, just what exactly is making this Celtics team so good right now and so much more. And finally, Mina Kimes joins us to talk about Super Bowl predictions and draft "Topics you shouldn't bring up around the holidays" which leads to some real revelations about Tommy Alter.
