We welcomed Ryan Mourton (aka, the King of Salt) from Fear the Sword on to the podcast to talk all things Warriors vs. Cavaliers. Somehow, we also managed to discuss Ryan's adventures in Snapchat, how the Warriors are "corny," and the upcoming convention in Cleveland and how that will impact the city.
