aThe Golden State Warriors will be battling for playoff position against a deep and scrappy Western Conference field, led by multiple teams from the Pacific Division. One of those teams could very well be the Sacramento Kings, a young squad with high hopes and a former Warrior in Harrison Barnes.

The “Dr. Tom and the Gold Blooded King” pod sat down with Brenden Nunes (@BrendenNunesNBA) of the “Kings Pulse” pod to discuss just how much of a problem he expects the Kings to be for the Warriors.

We covered:

  • Buddy Hield’s value to the franchise
  • Brenden’s (disappointed) impression of current Dub Willie Cauley-Stein’s tenure as a King
  • The matchups he likes and doesn’t like for the Kings
  • His skepticism over the Warriors small forwards
  • His tempered hopes for Barnes aka “The Black Falcon”
  • His expectation of the Kings to take the season series from the Warriors 3-1

And so much more! He’s a fun interview and brought some serious gems for your listening pleasure.
