  • Episode 5: Big Bro vs. Lil Bro

    In Episode 5 of The Coach & The Crooner Podcast the duo sit down after Friday’s loss to the Celtics and discuss “the little things” that are plaguing the home squad. From rebounding to game plan discipline to overall inconsistency, could it be we as a fan base underestimated the reality of how young some key Wolves players are? Maybe Big Brother Beverly and his culture setting ways carried more weight than we realized? Can Finch find answers this season whether a love is made or not? Check out episode 5 for these discussion topics and more from The Coach & The Crooner.
