New, comments

After giving ourselves some time to heal after Game 7 heartbreak, the Mindcast crew realizes that, no, we haven't healed — so let's move on and talk 2016 NBA free agency. Will the Warriors get Kevin Durant? How has the Harrison Barnes equation changed? Are the Warriors already planning to move on from Andrew Bogut and toward the future with a completely revamped roster? And what new ways will we find to ridicule the Lakers? All that and more on this episode of Golden State of Mindcast!
