Mike Tuck is thrilled to be part of the team at ESPN Radio, teaming up with old friends Jerry O’Neill and Brian Fritz. Mike is a huge Dolphins and Hurricanes football fan. His favorite basketball teams are the LA Lakers and Duke Blue Devils. He is a LA Dodgers baseball fan. To explain the out of town teams, growing up in South Florida there were no local basketball and baseball teams, so he loved watching the flash, style, and joy Magic Johnson played with, so he became a Lakers fan, and in his little mind, the LA-LA thing made sense, so he chose the Dodgers to cheer for. Tuck chose Duke because he wanted to be a Cameron Crazy. He grew up with Dan Marino and Magic as his favorite athletes ever. As passionate as Mike is about his teams, he is equally interested in following the NFL, NBA, MLB NCAA Football and Basketball closer than anyone in the business.
