The boys took a week off last week because Sal Castaneda took a little va-cay to the Hawaiian Islands and what he found there was more than waves, sunsets and sand. Sal noticed that the Warriors are huge in Honolulu -- He saw them on televisions at sports bars and at the world famous Duke's and all over the island.
Castaneda and Steinmetz also talk about whether the Warriors' popularity is taking away from the Giants and other teams around the Bay Area. And while we're talking about the Warriors, what's going to happen to Harrison Barnes. Is he going to be around next season? That question has become the backdrop to this historic season.
The closer it gets to April 1, the closer it gets that Colin Kaepernick will remain a 49er. Are you interested in the day-to-day drama or is it more like: Wake me when it's over. Lastly, Sal takes a "Bay Area slang" quiz.
The Golden State Warriors won their 45th consecutive regular-season game at Oracle Arena on Monday night. That is the longest home winning streak in NBA history. So, could you make the case that Oracle is the most difficult NBA arena for any team to play in? At least right here, right now?
Well, whether you think so or not ... crazy that the Warriors want to leave this place in Oakland that has been so tremendous for them. Oh, well. The Warriors are still winning but they don't seem to be doing so in spectacular fashion. That's an issue because the bar has been raised so high.
So, are the Warriors bored, are they in a malaise or is this more than that? Sal and Steiny try to figure it all out.
The boys also talk about how out in the cold the 49ers are, and how the Raiders are the team on a big-time ascent. Also, we tip our caps to Chip Vaughan and Alex Savidge, who had a harrowing experience on live TV today.
