This Incredibly Strange Celtics Year, Blake Back in LA, Trading DSJ

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - January 16, 2019 - 1:08:18

On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin with some buzz before Tuesday's Lakers-Bulls blockbuster and then move to a long-overdue discussion on the Celtics. Topics include: re-thinking six years of Celtics hype, Kyrie's re-brand as a veteran leader, whether this team is actually as talented as everyone thinks, whether this is the most disappointing season in the NBA, trades to make, Gordon Hayward's struggles, and why everything could still be fine in the end. Then (35:00): Blake's return to LA, what he could have done differently, and revisiting that Clippers trade. From there (45:00): Whether expectations make fanbases unhappy, whether Luke Walton will be fired in LA, the top 5 happiest fanbases, a new nickname for Luka Doncic, trading Dennis Smith Jr., and a Wizards Christmas gift.
