Game 1 of the NBA Finals is only a few short hours away and Golden State of Mind has teamed up with Raptors HQ to break this bad boy down!

Dr. Tom and the Gold Blooded King activated a megapod with our Northern blog buddies @ThatsARapPod and @andreasbabs, and we even brought back GSoM legend @BramKincheloe for this one.

In a wide ranging conversation we discussed:

  • Ranking Toronto fans’ fear of Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson
  • The different challenges of Golden State’s lineups with/without KD
  • How Raptors fans felt about DeMar DeRozan’s departure (hilarious metaphor alert from Andreas)
  • Patrick McCaw’s defection and Alfonzo McKinnie’s ascension
  • Which fringe rotation player’s success is most beloved by their fan base
  • Is Fred Van Vleet better than Kyle Lowry?
  • Bram and Dr. Tom go at it over whether or not it’d be best for KD to leave
  • G1 and Finals predictions

Look there’s so much we covered, why are you still reading? Hop into the pod and let us get you hyped up for the championship series!
