Saam Esfandiari and Spike Eskin are, respectively, co-hosts of the Light Years podcast (Warriors) and The Rights to Ricky Sanchez podcast (76ers). Both teams had their seasons end in searing disappointment over the weekend, which can be a tricky outcome to handle if you’re running a fan pod. Both guys handle failure expertly though, so we got into the nitty gritty of how that goes, plus some of their theories on players and media. Conversation topics include but aren’t limited to…

* The Ricky fans are broken; The Warriors fans…less so

* How to make fans characters in your pod universe

* I hate being wrong about sports takes. Saam and Spike think it’s key to not fear this

* Is “loser energy” real? Are certain highly paid, incredibly successful athletes…losers?

* Can it be possible that the fans care more about the outcome than players?

* Does Doc Rivers have loser energy?

* Was Joel Embiid maliciously taken out of context when quoted saying, “Me and James, we can't win alone”?

* Is the normie take correct and Draymond Green really did doom the Warriors’ season by punching Jordan Poole?

* At 1:04:45 we discuss an accidentally hilarious article by an SF Gate writer who attended a Dave Chappelle show in San Francisco and was aghast.
