Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - February 15, 2019 - 1:15:14

On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver are live from NBA All-Star Weekend in Charlotte. They begin with talk about Nike hacking shoelaces, Zion Williamson, and Charles Barkley's thoughts on the Anthony Davis saga. Then (16:00): the shadow cast by the Hamptons Five, whether games still matter, and what the NBA might look like a year from now. From there (40:00): Paul George is making believers out of the whole world, Russ is playing with a purpose, and Trae Young leads a rookie class that looks kind of incredible. At the end (60:00): Checking in with LeBron as L.A. takesmen grow restless, and then listeners write in with ideas for All-Star Weekend -- including a ban on backboards, tampering live feeds, and a wine-drinking contest.
