Here at Golden State of Mindcast, we are blessed to know some super nice, super smart basketball people. So, while trying to figure out just what we’ve witnessed through the first two games of the 2017 NBA Finals, we brought on our buddy Adam Mares — site manager at Denver Stiffs, and national writer at Vice — to discuss.
Annotated list of topics covered:
2:00 - “What did Westbrook do to you, man? Did he talk about your mother?!”
4:45 - I’m so bored, I can’t even remember the last few games. Also, welcome Adam!
5:45 - Is it going to be a sweep?
11:20 - Adam wants to see the Warriors push the envelope of the game of basketball. If they are going to be a superteam, he wants them to “reinvent the game.” Also, are they playing “B- basketball?”
17:30 - The musical comparison of wanting to see the John Coltrane quartet, and wanting for Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix to collaborate, and how that compares to this Warriors squad. #Team Beatles.
27:50 - the beautiful thing about the Warriors offense.
32:30 - Nate and I are pissed off about these takes, but we are curious what Adam’s hottest take is about these Finals.
36:00 - Durant’s greatness in these Finals.
52:00 - “You know where KD would really fit, outside of Golden State?”
54:00 - Best outcome for the rest of the Finals?
