How Warriors vs. Cavaliers Round IV is like a Black Mirror dystopian sex scene

Released Tuesday, 5th June 2018
Good episode? Give it some love!
Golden State of Mindcast welcomed Fear the Sword’s inimitable social voice and internet troll Ryan Mourton onto the pod to talk all things Warriors vs. Cavs. At the beginning of the year, many predicted a fourth installment of summer’s biggest blockbuster, namely, these two teams matching up. But, there’s a certain magic that is missing. A certain innocence we’ve lost through these long years.

Either way, Ryan and I jumped down into the fight pit, cage match, to discuss such things as Richard Jefferson (how he was awesome for the Cavaliers but horrible for the Warriors), if LeBron’s 2007 team was better or worse than this 2018 team, and much more including an unfortunate Black Mirror reference.

Come for the chuckles, stay for the random Kyle Korver appreciation.
