The Golden State Warriors are in the NBA Finals. As Tim Roye, one of the greatest radio play-by-play men of all-time, would say (and already has): "Unbelievable!"
Castaneda has been in the Bay Area his entire life; Steinmetz covered the Warriors for a long, long time, including their days of horror from 1995-2007. The two of them devote this episode to the Warriors and all the issues leading up to Game 1 on Thursday.
Among the topics: Who the hell cares whether Stephen Curry was at the Giants' game? ... Is it fair to bring up those Draymond Green tweets from years ago about LeBron James? ... What's up with Klay Thompson and his concussion? ... Why do you have to make a prediction on the series?
And, finally, because the topic is being written about in the Bay Area -- can we finally set the record straight on what happened the night Joe Lacob got booed and why it happened? Hint: It was about so much more than Monta Ellis.
Sal and Steiny get right into this week, talking about the Warriors assuming a 1-0 lead over the Rockets in the Western Conference finals. Sal and Steiny hit all the issues, including whether or not Dwight Howard and Josh Smith are reliable enough, whether Mark Jackson is a "Warriors hater" and whether or not Riley Curry should have been at the postgame dais (hint: it was cool).
Sal and Steiny also get into the "inner fire" debate and why Draymond Green has it but Howard and Smith don't. We also found out Sal has the inner fire ... Steiny, we have no clue about.
Bottom line, another must-listen podcast for Warriors fans.
Sal and Steiny are talking all Warriors in this abbreviated, yet timely podcast. This one comes to you after Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals -- a game in which the Warriors won 98-78 to take a 3-2 series lead.
Sal is feeling pretty good about the Warriors chances, and so is Steiny. But Steiny cautions that the series is definitely not over and that he still expects it to go the full seven games.
Among the podcast topics, this one: Why are Steph Curry's 3-pointers perhaps worth more than three points? We also talk about the poise and demeanor of Harrison Barnes, playing much more wisely than most 22-year-olds.
Sal and Steiny also talk briefly about the Warriors receiving criticism in some circles for tweeting out a welcome to controversial boxing champion Floyd Mayweather.

The Golden State Warriors lost a game, so that's enough reason to talk about them these days. As the Warriors head to Memphis tied 1-1 in their Western Conference semifinal, Sal and Steiny talk all things Warriors.
Are the Grizzlies getting their proper respect? Are the Warriors actually getting a bad whistle from the officials? What's wrong with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson?
Or how about this ... If you're a Warriors' fan, would you rather have the Warriors roll through the postseason on their way to a title or would you rather have seven-game series after seven-game series on the way to the most dramatic victory in NBA Finals' history?
And since it was such a hit last week, we bring back Warriors' trivia, where we test just how big of a Dubs fan you are.
