Tim Roye, the radio voice of the Golden State Warriors, joined Grant to discuss Game 6 in Oakland Thursday night and the Warriors’ need to bounce back from sub-par performance in Game 5. He also talked about Spurs’ ability not to beat themselves with mental errors, Harrison Barnes improved play in the playoffs. Roye also said the key for Golden State to win was to limit Tony Parker ability to get in the paint & increase the number of times Steph Curry gets open looks at the basket.
Kings longtime play-by-play announcer Gary Gerould joined Grant to discuss the news of the Kings staying in Sacramento. Gerould talked about where he was when he found out the big news, his reflection on the ups and downs of this saga over the past 3 years and thoughts on the upcoming offseason.
Finally, Grant’s Rant addressed Ric Bucher’s false assertions that Maloofs would not sale to the Sacramento group. Grant blasted Bucher for being inaccurate and said he has lost all respect for him.
