Episode 257 Show Notes:
The REAL offseason starts with the 2022 NBA Draft! Your World Champion Golden State Warriors’ 1st round pick lands at No. 28 — that’s right, the same pick that produced both Jordan Poole (yessss!) and Jacob Evans III (noooo!). Patrick is joined by Aram in Toronto once again to talk about what he likes to call “Warriors Christmas”. It’s a little different from last season when the W’s had two high lottery picks, so they’re taking a slightly different more pragmatic approach to this year’s draft. After winning a title and with a number of young high-end prospects already on the roster, what will the W’s do?
