For the inaugural episode, I am joined by my former 95.7 The Game colleague, Josh Rosenberg. Josh and I talk Golden State Warriors basketball. We cover Stephen Curry’s NBA MVP award ceremony, the Dubs second round series with the Memphis Grizzlies, the historic nature of their 2014-15 season, and every other Golden State Warriors topic that we could get to.
Here is a link to purchase Josh’s book, “Suddenly Facing Reality.”
