Tyrese Haliburton shares insights and anecdotes on The Hoop Collective/The Lowe Post

He's done it again - Tyrese Haliburton continues to give us more reasons to admire him.

On the most recent crossover podcast episode of The Hoop Collective and The Lowe Post, Brian Windhorst and Zach Lowe hosted a discussion with our beloved Tyrese Haliburton. They covered analysis of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, reflections of Haliburton's first NBA season, and Haliburton's experience with the USA Men's Select Team.

It seems that every time Tyrese opens his mouth or merely makes a public appearance (i.e. repping retro Kings attire), we find something new to love about him. And this podcast appearance was no different - he impressed, humored, and thoughtfully reflected like a professional beyond his years. The episode is filled with impressive basketball analysis from Tyrese, featuring specific breakdowns of the Suns-Bucks Game 3 matchup, as well as strategic observations of defending the popular Spain pick and roll.

But beyond Tyrese's demonstration of his insane basketball knowledge, my favorite part of the episode was a funny anecdote he shared about his first time playing against Chris Paul. If you only listen for that story, it's worth it.

It’s the thing lazy writers came up with yo make their lives easier. I listen to people talk all day at work, when I want to relax I’d much prefer to read. But I’m old? And literate.

The CP3 story cracked me up.

Really a great appearance for him. I loved listening to him breaking down game actions, and it seemed like Lowe and Windhorst were enjoying it too.

Tyrese sounds like someone who had a future in broadcasting after retiring from a glorious career of leading the Kings to multiple championships.

That or coaching. I could see him going either way.

BBIQ (very often but not always overlapping with IQ in general) is something that, when elite, I marvel at like a fantastic dunk or a devastating block.

Not that this is new news, but listening to Tyrese talk basketball (and seeing him show it on the court) it is clear that his BBIQ is on that elite level. Am I saying he’s on that basketball savant level of a Magic, or Bird, or Lebron, or CP3, or even Rondo? not yet necessarily, but he thinks the game like them, and that is a crazy underrated and ridiculously sustainable elite ability to have.

Off Topic:

As Ben Simmons is on the block…….

Just can’t wait until tonight/ tomorrow to see we successfully traded Ben Simmons for #9, Hield & Bagley……

Do it, McNair !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t think Monte is the one that needs convincing to do that deal…

Better off sending a hypnotist to Morey’s house.

Only way Morey does that deal is if you replace the name Hield with Fox.

or Haliburton

A proven all star for a streaky shooter and a guy that only plays 40% of the games. Throw in a number nine pick. Sure…..

No other team in the NBA is as dumb as the Kangz.

Hali is such a joy to watch play and listen to in interviews. Thanks for sharing this link!

I ran into Haliburton at the Kona airport in late May.

He was difficult to spot waiting in the TSA line. Hoodie, sunglasses and a mask. But I remember standing near him and thinking, “that seems like what Rese would look like in person.”

I turned to my wife and said, “I’m not convinced that’s NOT Tyrese Haliburton.”

“Noooo.” was her reply.

“Probably not. But, it could be.”


Then, I heard him speak and I was like, “Yo…that could def be dude.”

We then stalked his insta and saw the woman he was with in a few of his pics. I didn’t want to blow up the spot tho, so I didn’t say anything. I’m also not one to get star struck (other than the time I met Robin Williams).

Then, I went into the cafeteria area, and shortly after, Rese walked in. At that point, his mask was down, he standing near me, and I caught his attention.

“I love watching you play. Super stoked to have you in Sacramento, my dude!”

His reply was simple, sincere and charismatic: “Hey! Thank you so much…I really appreciate that” followed up with a confident smile and a hand to the chest.

And it was so much better than the time I met Cousins or Bogey who both seemed like they couldn’t be bothered, despite my lowkey approach and the fact many people weren’t around.
