Mavericks Dysfunction, Top 10 Players Under 23, Goodbye Kawhi

Mavericks Dysfunction, Top 10 Players Under 23, Goodbye Kawhi

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - February 23, 2018 - 1:20:36

On today's show Sharp and Golliver begin by discussing the toxic Mavericks culture brought to light by Jon Wertheim and Jessica Luther in this week's Sports Illustrated investigation. How much did Mark Cuban's behavior inform the culture elsewhere? How will the league respond? And what can be learned from this investigation and others like it? From there, they celebrate a slow week in the NBA by ranking the top 10 young players in the NBA (14:00), including Giannis, Embiid, Porzingis, Jokic, Ingram, Booker, Lonzo, Markkanen, Mitchell, 12-Time Tatum, and more. Then they revisit the Kawhi Leonard situation (45:00) to discuss what's next in San Antonio, and what conclusions can be drawn from this week's news. At the end (1:05) they discuss realignment, expansion, LeBron's objections, and KD's Warriors.
