The NBA season is here! Finals predictions, Zion heartbreak & Jamal Murray's swag

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - October 22, 2019 - 1:05:50

On today's show, Ben Golliver and Rob Mahoney gear up for the start of the 2019-20 NBA season by making their predictions. Which teams will make the conference finals? Who will win the title? What's the dream West match-up? Are there any spoilers looming in the East? Which teams will disappoint, which will surprise, and which will be downright awful? Then, Ben and Rob shift gears to reflect on the implications of Zion Williamson's knee surgery. How bad is this for the NBA as a whole? Will he need to change his body type? Are Blake Griffin and Greg Oden reason comparison points? They close by digging into Rob's Sports Illustrated story on Jamal Murray, which features a fateful coaching decision and a brash prediction of better days to come.
