Our special guest is Tim Kawakami from the Athletic. He tells us why the online sportswriting site is successful and we chat about the Warriors season: “This is not going to be a smooth sailing season,” says Kawakami. “There are still going to be some episodes. I’m convinced of it. They didn’t ruin the NBA, because this is tough. This is a long season. You suffer through some things, you fight through them and as Steve Kerr always says, that’s the reason why you go crazy when you win a championship, why you spray each other with champagne. Not because it’s easy, because it’s hard.”
