Boy howdy, Bram and Ivan are back and more untethered than ever. Nate sat this one out, and somehow any time there’s a two man crew, things get a little wonky (see minute marker 29:00 or so).
We talked voter fatigue, Draymond Green’s DPOY candidacy, the Warriors developing into the superteam we all expected, and much more (aka, boofing).
[Add x amount of time if blogtalk inserts an advertisement]
3:00 - Draymond Green, Defensive Player of the Year (talking about those two blocks).
5:30 - Voter fatigue and how it relates to Stephen Curry’s MVP candidacy.
6:00 - People hate things that are good for them.
7:45 - Kevin Durant’s better-than-advertised defense for the Warriors, especially from the weak side.
13:20 - Will the Warriors have the best offense of all time once the season is said and done? We compare them to the 2002-03 Utah Jazz, a team that somehow included Karl Malone, John Stockton, Mark Jackson (yup, that Mark Jackson), and Deshawn Stevenson (looooool, what a wacky, strange locker room that must have been). Also, shoutout Jarron Collins!
17:00 - Bram makes a horrible Vince Vaughn reference and then refuses to edit anything out.
19:00 - After Ivan mentions Zaza Pachulia, Bram somehow goes on a very long, profanity-laced dive down the rabbit hole of Zsa Zsa Gabor’s wikipedia page. FEEL FREE TO SKIP THIS PART, I ONLY KEPT IT IN FOR ALL Y’ALL MOVIE/HISTORY BUFFS OUT THERE.
22:37 - “This is definitely getting edited out. Our history of the Gabor family.” “That’s what you think!”
23:00 - Okay, back to Warriors. Damian Jones = next A’mare Stoudemire?
28:00 - Will Damian Jones start taking wine baths? Somehow, this leads Bram to make Ivan look up the term “boofing.” Hilarity ensues.
32:30 - Oh right, tomorrow’s game! Warriors take on the Rockets tonight.
33:45 - Wondering what a D’Antoni/Curry match in NYC would have looked like.
35:45 - OKC should be completely ashamed of themselves for losing both Harden and Durant. Are they cursed after stealing the team from Seattle?
40:00 - What’s the bigger challenge? Incorporating a new star player (Durant), or incorporating a new offensive system (D’Antoni)?
43:00 - #ArrogantSZN is in full swing.
