NBA: Finals-Cleveland Cavaliers at Golden State Warriors Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to The Chase Down Cavaliers Podcast, part of the Leverage The Chat podcast network.

This week we had a special crossover episode, as we were joined by Andy Liu and Sam Esfandiari of the Light Years podcast to break down all things surrounding the rivalry between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors.

While our allegiances are different, our love of the game and the funnier side of the NBA helped make this one of the more fun podcasts we’ve done in awhile.
