DNHQ Vidcast: Optimistic vs Skeptical outlooks on the 2021 Warriors
There will be roasting.
Hi everybody. Forbes Sports correspondent Patrick Murray is a dear friend of the HQ and asked Duby Dub Dubs and myself to crank up the DNHQ Vidcast to talk the offseason.
I said sure, because anytime a Forbes man comes knocking, it’s a good idea to show some hospitality.
What followed next was a rambling conversation between the three of us featuring me bringing out the receipts on what I’d refer to as Duby’s perpetually nervous handwringing, Duby making some fair points about the team’s injury concerns, and Patrick ultimately being the voice of reason to unify us all. As a Forbes man would, of course.
Here’s some timestamps for your viewing convenience. Enjoy your weekend.
