Michael Porter Jr. has always had the talent and drive to dominate with the ball in his hands, but injuries sometimes have a way of being the equalizer on whether or not that talent translates to success on the court. Well, it seems any questions that might have lingered have been put to rest as MPJ has taken his game to a new level over the last two seasons. And in this interview, it’s easy to see why as he speaks well beyond his years and touches on both the difficulties and successes he has encountered on his hoops journey. Following that up, JJ and Tommy welcome in OM3 correspondent and favorite Sue Bird to tackle another Top5/Draft. This may be the one that gets JJ off his recent slide as Tommy reaches for some highly questionable picks, putting the onus on Sue to come through in the clutch. Who knows how it will play out.
