Golden State of MindCast: 2017 NBA Playoffs First Round: Previewing Warriors vs. Blazers, podcast style

Ivan and Nate couldn’t make it, so I brought David MacKay and Dan Marang on to the pod from Blazer’s Edge. We had a blast, talking about the upcoming first round battle, as well as the soul of Portland, the future of the Trail Blazers, and much, much more.

1:00 – Excited for playoffs? Apparently they aren’t.

2:30 – If Russell Westbrook has a 30-10-10 game, his averages would literally GO DOWN. Oh my, I think my brain exploded.

3:30 – Previewing the first round. It’s time for Blazers vs. Warriors, part two! Who are we going to see in the starting lineup for the Blazers in Game 1?

4:13 – Jusuf Nurkic back for Game 1? Whoa.

7:00 – “NURCULES!!!” I’m all in on this nickname.

24:40 – How are the Harkless/Al-Farouq Aminu rotations going to work out in the first round? Who spends the most time on Kevin Durant?

32:30 – We all think Nurkic comes back in Game 3 and the Blazers win, but will it irreparably mess up his health, a la previous renditions of Portland big men?

34:00 – Can the Blazers actually win this series? We make our predictions, game by game.

42:00 – If the Blazers beat the Warriors, would it be a bigger upset than “We Believe?”

43:45 – I open a HUGE can of worms by asking, “What is the future of the Portland Trail Blazers.” They went deep on this, specifically about the luxury tax. I had totally forgotten that the Blazers were so mired in bad contracts.
