Patrick is once again joined by UCLA Professor Ramesh Srinivasan to discuss the Golden State Warriors' 104-96 loss to the Phoenix Suns. They break down the Suns' impressive defense (particularly Deandre Ayton and Mikal Bridges), the poise of the Suns' younger live-bodied players, Stephen Curry and Draymond Green's worst games of the season, the need for James Wiseman to study these kinds of games and make a real difference, Jordan Poole's promising string of strong performances in big games, Andrew Wiggins workmanlike attitude playing through back spasms, Kevon Looney's troubles finishing, Gary Payton II's calm skill around the basket, and the opportunities to learn and get after it again at Chase Center on Friday.

We're a quarter way through the season and Patrick discusses the Golden State Warriors' 105-90 win over the Los Angeles Clippers. He breaks down Stephen Curry's "pissed off" barrage, Jordan Poole's clutch effort, Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody's encouraging cameos, Chris Paul's inability to beat Steph and the W's, and the NBA's dream scenario of the two best teams in the league -- your 18-2 Warriors and the 17-3 Phoenix Suns -- playing what amounts to a two-game series this week. He also talks about the shift in hopes and expectations going from "this team is pretty good" to "this team is special and can have an all-time memorable season (if everything breaks right)." Scoreboard-watching officially starts... NOW.

Patrick discusses the Golden State Warriors' 118-103 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. Specifically he talks the improving secondary scoring tandem of Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole, if Stephen Curry and Draymond Green are the reverse John Stockton and Karl Malone, Steph being clearly better than Damian Lillard, how Portland should just start over and reshuffle the deck, and the importance of Andre Iguodala hopefully returning for the big Clippers and Suns games coming in the week ahead.

21 min 22 sec

Patrick breaks down the Golden State Warriors' 116-96 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. With the Warriors clearly being very, very good, he discusses revised goals for the squad this season: preserving health, maintaining playoff positioning, and getting the supporting cast members acclimated for the big moments and bright lights of the playoffs (and beyond!). In this game, the W's successfully accomplished all of those things. And Jordan Poole's passing, Andrew Wiggins' continued aggression, and Juan Toscano-Anderson's instant energy showed the NBA that the W's are, in fact, 100% legit. He also talks Draymond Green's stellar night, Gary Payton II's ability to float, Otto Porter Jr. getting the most open shots of his life, and Seth Curry making it in the league. Happy Holidays!

Thanksgiving is here so it's time for some gratitude! Patrick is joined by Vu-Bang for an entertaining discussion about what they're each thankful for so far this promising Golden State Warriors season. They talk Bob Myers, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Larry Riley, the Minnesota Timberwolves, the old ill-fitting Los Angeles Lakers, the Malice at the Palace, the Bay Area G League teams, and more!

Patrick is joined by Aram in Toronto to talk the Golden State Warriors' 119-104 win over the Toronto Raptors. They discuss the glorious ongoing rebirth of Andrew Wiggins; Jordan Poole slowing down and staying balanced; Juan Toscano-Anderson getting back some of his minutes from Jonathan Kuminga; the professionalism of JTA and Damion Lee; Klay Thompson being cleared to practice; Pascal Siakam, Scottie Barnes, and the Raptors future; going to Detroit or Cleveland to watch a W's game; and (as a bonus) they chat about the sequence of events in Sacramento that included a fan (aka "Puke Walton") vomiting courtside during a home game and Luke Walton being fired as the Kings head coach all within 24 hours. All we have to say is godspeed, Interim Head Coach (and former Warriors Assistant Head Coach) Alvin Gentry!

35 min 2 sec

Patrick drops some thoughts on the Golden State Warriors' shorthanded 105-103 win over the lowly Detroit Pistons. With Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala, and Otto Porter Jr. all sitting, secondary players Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole stepped up with aggression and efficiency to hang on for the victory. Showing even greater depth, Gary Payton II and Nemanja Bjelica chipped in as well; while Jonathan Kuminga had a less than stellar showing. Overall though, the W's accomplished their goals for the evening: 1) rest their veteran core, 2) win the game, 3) find out if the supporting cast could rise to the challenge without the team's leaders. After a successful 3-1 road trip, Scottie Barnes and the Toronto Raptors are next at Chase Center.

Patrick is joined by Dan Lee of the San Francisco band Scrabbel to talk the Golden State Warriors come-from-behind 104-89 win against the plucky short-handed Cleveland Cavaliers. They talk the W's championship DNA (after sleepwalking through three quarters), "Peak Steph's" 4th quarter MVP performance, the professionalism of Juan Toscano-Anderson, Jonathan Kuminga's brief struggles, the need for Jordan Poole to shoot more 2-pointers than 3-pointers, and James Wiseman vs. Kevon Looney. They also discuss broader topics like Chase Center, James Harden's foul-baiting, why some NBA fans hate on Stephen Curry, and in turn why some W's fans hate on Kevin Durant.

Patrick is once again joined by UCLA Professor Ramesh Srinivasan to discuss the Golden State Warriors' surprising but convincing 117-99 blowout win over Kevin Durant's Brooklyn Nets. They talk about Stephen Curry's otherworldly MVP-level transcendence, Jonathan Kuminga's amazing body control and innate ability to just make great things happen on both ends of the floor, Andrew Wiggins' growing confidence and aggression, the W's legit 13-deep bench (without including Klay Thompson or James Wiseman!), the remaining games on the W's road trip, the continued ugliness of James Harden's foul-baiting game, general impressions of the Nets, and more!

The win-streak is over, but it's just one loss. No reason to panic. Patrick digs into the Golden State Warriors' 106-102 loss to the Charlotte Hornets, including Jonathan Kuminga's eye-opening rapid improvement, Andrew Wiggins remaining in attack mode, the W's surprisingly cold 3-point shooting, rotation questions, closing lineup issues, and more!

14 min 34 sec

Patrick wonders if this 11-1 Golden State Warriors team has the deepest roster from 1-15 of the dynasty era, as the W's handily defeats the Chicago Bulls 119-93. Specifically he talks: Stephen Curry getting an "easy" 40; Jonathan Kuminga showing the power, athleticism, and patience to prove he might be ready way sooner than you think; the W's defense continuing to impress; high-flying dunkers suddenly taking over the team; and the upcoming roadtrip -- including a game against Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets.

Nov 13

17 min 30 sec

Patrick discusses the 10-1 Golden State Warriors' 123-110 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, especially Andrew Wiggins' finally showing out as the amazingly explosive Maple Jordan. Wiggs had his best game as a Warrior dropping huge dunks on former teammate Karl-Anthony Towns' head. He played like the max player he can be. But why can't we get this version of Wiggins more often? Plus, Draymond Green hurts his knee and what that might mean for the next couple games, Gary Payton II can't stop dunking, Anthony Edwards drops 48 and looks like the real deal, and the W's STILL win the D'Angelo Russell for Andrew Wiggins (and Jonathan Kuminga) trade -- especially since Kuminga will be the best out of all of them!

14 min 40 sec

Patrick talks Stephen Curry's 50-point 10-assist night leading the Golden State Warriors to a 127-113 win over the Atlanta Hawks. He discusses NEVER taking Steph's singular greatness for granted, how the W's roster is slowly but surely reaching its potential, Gary Payton II literally annoying Trae Young on defense all night, how GP2 and Jordan Poole continue to blow up everyone's offseason and preseason rankings, Jonathan Kuminga getting first quarter minutes, Andrew Wiggins actually dunking more, and the upcoming schedule.

Patrick discusses his observations from the Golden State Warriors' 120-107 win over the young but feisty Houston Rockets, including sitting Andre Iguodala, how Gary Payton II and Jordan Poole have changed everything from the summer, Poole thankfully getting to the free throw line, Jalen Green (aka the Greatest Filipino Basketball Player of All-Time), and how there aren't as many "hopeless" bad teams in the NBA as in previous years. Patrick also talks the upcoming game against the foul-baiting Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks.

The Golden State Warriors did what they're supposed to do: destroy a terrible New Orleans Pelicans team missing its two best players. In an entertaining 126-85 blowout, Patrick wants to thank the NBA's schedule-makers for giving the W's such a soft schedule to the start the season. He also discusses the importance of Jordan Poole's consecutive big games, Gary Payton II's vertical threat and continued all-around play, the need for James Wiseman to be paying attention, Andre Iguodala's massive influence on the culture of this team both on and off the court, having multiple shooters on the court at any time, the insane passing of the Warriors' "beautiful game", the upcoming games against the Houston Rockets and Atlanta Hawks, and more!

Patrick breaks down the wildly entertaining Golden State Warriors' 114-92 win over the Charlotte Hornets, including the on-court catharsis of Jordan Poole's big night, Gary Payton II's steady emergence, a (mostly) unwavering belief in James Wiseman, Kevon Looney's wonky offense, Steve Kerr's continued rotation experiments, the growing luxury of the W's plug-and-play roster, the surprising number of "Andre Iguodala-types" on this team, the W's "Black Lightning" uniforms, a first look at LaMelo Ball and former Warrior Kelly Oubre Jr., and the W's next opponent -- the godawful New Orleans Pelicans.

43 min 59 sec

Patrick catches up with Aram in Toronto to talk the "scariest" most troubling trends (lacking a dependable secondary scorer, limited team athleticism, Jordan Poole's inconsistency, etc.) vs. the most enouraging trends (Andre Iguodala's calming presence, true depth and team chemistry, etc.) for the Golden State Warriors so far this young season. They also discuss this year's talented NBA rookie class (which is turning out to be as good as advertised), feeling rookie FOMO, and their impressions of Jonathan Kuminga's first NBA game and bucket. (01:47) "Scariest" Warriors trends so far (14:25) Loving the new no-call foul call rules (20:37) "Comforting" Warriors trends so far (26:32) Rookie FOMO?

Patrick talks the Golden State Warriors' first bad loss of this young season, a 104-101 come-from-ahead-to-lose defeat at the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies. Specifically, he discusses the W's coughing up a 19-point lead due to godawful turnovers and poor decision-making, Jordan Poole's tendency to force the action, the team's built-in flaws against younger more athletic teams, the silliness of blaming Steve Kerr, correcting mistakes, revised opinions on Ja Morant and the Grizz, and more!

Patrick breaks down the Golden State Warriors' 106-98 road win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. In particular, he talks how the oft overlooked Damion Lee basically won this game for the W's, the squad's tendency to start slow this season and in prior seasons, Andrew Wiggins' aggressiveness showing up, Jordan Poole's growing pains, Steve Kerr's lineup experiments, and the young talent on the upcoming Memphis Grizzlies.

Patrick talks the Golden State Warriors' 119-107 win over the Sacramento Kings. Specifically, he breaks down Gary Payton II showing exactly why we all wanted him in the 15th roster spot, Jordan Poole's welcome aggression towards the rim, worries about Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green happily shooting 12 times, passing on Davion Mitchell in the NBA draft, and the surprisingly feisty Kings. Plus, Patrick looks ahead towards the next game against the lowly Oklahoma City Thunder and their rookie lottery pick, Josh Giddey, who had also drawn interest from the W's.

18 min 10 sec

Patrick breaks down the Golden State Warriors' home opener -- an aesthetically unpleasing 115-113 win over the resilient, physical Los Angeles Clippers. Specifically, he talks Stephen Curry's continued transcendence, Jordan Poole's struggles (and first opportunity to make real adjustments), the correctable sloppiness of 21 turnovers and 14-22 FT shooting, the flaws in their roster, protecting their core veterans, and taking the long view towards the playoffs. He also chimes in on the NBA's Top 75 players of all-time list, specifically including Damian Lillard instead of Kyrie Irving.

Patrick breaks down the Golden State Warriors' final preseason game against the Portland Trailblazers as they finish up undefeated at 5-0 (which, of course, means nothing). He talks the W's gamble cutting Gary Payton II and keeping the 15th roster spot open, Moses Moody's potentially increased role, Stephen Curry getting some help this year, and the W's growing team chemistry as the regular season approaches.

Patrick returns from a trip to catch up on the week that was, specifically the Golden State Warriors' preseason wins over the Denver Nuggets and the Los Angeles Lakers. He talks the W's depth and the newfound wealth of 3-point shooting; James Wiseman's opportunity to feast in open space; Jordan Poole's efficiency, Klay Thompson becoming the W's future Manu Ginobili; the weird awesomeness of seeing fans in the stands at Chase Center; Andre Iguodala talking to the young'uns; the Lakers' own youth movement; and after Jonathan Kuminga's recent (but thankfully non-serious) injury, whether or not there's an Oakland curse!

Golden State Warriors basketball is finally back!! Patrick breaks down what he saw in the W's first preseason game, a win over the same old same old Portland Trailblazers. He talks the crispness of the starting unit, the squad finally having real NBA depth again, the revelation that is Jordan Poole, Andrew Wiggins' aggression (and odd postgame vaccine quotes), Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody's spot minutes, Avery Bradley and the 15th roster spot, and more!

Seeing that the top prospects in each class pretty much make up a position by position starting five, they pick their teams.

Patrick is again joined by Jose Lopez from GetRoppa.com to talk about... BEN SIMMONS! Jose is a huge advocate for trading for the estranged Philadelphia 76ers 6'11" point guard. If it were up to him, the Golden State Warriors would've already pulled the trigger. Jose states his case to Patrick who has been adamant that the Warriors 100% should NOT give up the house for Simmons (or any other disgruntled player of the week). Is it convincing enough? (1:24) Why the W's should absolutely trade for Simmons (10:05) The biggest red flags (15:39) Who the W's should offer in a Simmons trade (27:45) Would Klutch agent Rich Paul want Klutch client Draymond traded to Philly?

He also discusses the first few hours of NBA free agency (Note, this was recorded: before the Warriors signed Otto Porter Jr., which ultimately is a solid deal on a vet minimum).
