Basketball Podcast: Ethan Sherwood Strauss talking Warriors, Lakers, and burritos

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

I'm joined today by Ethan Sherwood Strauss of,, various cameos on TrueHoop, and The Classical. Ethan or ESS as his initials like to be ordered is one of the more outside-the-box thinkers when it comes to NBA fans and analysts. In fact, his musings and thinking out loud in tweet form may have angered you in the past.

We talk about his Golden State Warriors and how he's feeling about them as a team. He is no longer shackled by the Monta Ellis era Warriors and feels much more joy and fandom with this team. Is staying away from the media room in Oracle Arena the way to enjoy the team more? How are Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry doing?

Then we discuss the Chris Duhon-Joey Crawford video I made and how Crawford is as an official in our eyes. Is he that bad or does he just have really bad moments? Who is the worst official to come to mind?

We also peruse the Los Angeles Lakers and whether or not panic is warranted now. Will Steve Nash fix everything? Can Dwight Howard become the force we thought he once was? What mythical creature has Kobe Bryant turned into this season?

All of that and we debate burrito inners and decide which players move like crabs.
