We’re not quite done with Warriors’ Punchgate, and I’ll seize on any reason to speak with independent GSW-centric podcasters Andy Liu and Saam Esfandiari. In this episode, we discuss:
Draymond and The Punch
Is the Bay Area media soft? Compared to what?
Toy Story is like Draymond/Poole
Why it was tough for a media startup to get a foothold in LA
My own conflicts of interest and how they intersect with a Klutch story
Andy talks about “Podmond” Green
Saam’s take: Was Barry Bonds a bigger star in his day than Steph Curry in his day?
Andy hates weed, is the anti-KD
Did the league back LeBron over Steph? How’d it go?
Can the NBA make new household names or are those days gone?
