Merry Christmas and welcome back for another edition of the Warriorsworld podcast!

Don't call it a comeback. 

The WarriorsWorld podcast is back this week one day after the Warriors largest comeback in nearly a decade. In our first segment we talk about the team's epic comeback against the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night and might connect it with T-Pain and Macklemore. We tried to at least.

It was an eventful week for the Golden State Warriors which gives Sheed and myself (Jordan is on the East Coast attending the Sloan Conference) a ton to talk about on the latest edition of the WarriorsWorld podcast.

We start the show talking about Stephen Curry's incredible 54-point performance under the brightest of lights in Madison Square Garden.

Then we dive into the brawl/scuffle/game-of-tag (as Sheed puts it) that took place against the Pacers in Indiana. Has David West been fined yet? No? Okay.

Finally, we end the show by going over the interesting parenting methods by the Thompson's in regards to Klay's money. All I have to say is, David Lee better be pitching in for his sophomore teammate's $35,000 fine.
