Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - December 29, 2017 - 1:12:21

On today's show Sharp and Golliver open the show by giving thanks to the listeners, and then dive into this week's NBA news and discuss the value of Jimmy Butler in Minnesota (4:00). Then they answer more questions from listeners, including the re-programming of NBA defenses and offenses in the modern era (10:00), the rise of the Raptors, historical comparisons for their team, and the complicated conversation about how good they really are (20:00). From there: the 1988 Lakers dropped into 2017 to play against the Warriors (28:00), underwhelming title teams of the past (34:00), and the Torrey Craig story in Denver. At the end (50:00): recommendations for British basketball fans, a correction on Die Hard, more takes on Adult Legos, new Nike jerseys, and the Jazz marketing directly to Golliver.
