Joe Tsai | S2 E3

Joe Tsai moved from Taiwan to the United States to attend the Lawrenceville School when he was 13. He wanted to play baseball there, but instead found the game of lacrosse.

He developed a love for the game that took him to Yale, where he played collegiately. In his post-lacrosse career, he co-founded Alibaba, in addition gaining ownership of multiple professional sports teams. He’s one of the most successful businessmen in the world. Yes, the world.

He continues to support the sport of lacrosse like no one ever has. He sits downs with Paul Carcaterra to share his story, from the first stick to his unprecedented business success.

Lyle Thompson | S1 E2

Lyle Thompson is one of the greatest players in the history of the game. His dazzling abilities wowed fans while he was on his way to becoming the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer at Albany.

Now a professional lacrosse player, competing with the NLL’s Georgia Swarm and MLL’s Chesapeake Bayhawks, he continues to showcase the same skill that made him a star years ago.

Thompson, who was the target of ignorant remarks about his hairstyle at Wells Fargo Arena in January, reflects on the incident and how it may have advanced the conversation concerning Native American lacrosse players. He also touches on his joy of being a father.
