Midseason Fact or Fiction, Bad Draft Comps, Wrapping Up Lavar Talk

Midseason Fact or Fiction, Bad Draft Comps, Wrapping Up Lavar Talk

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - January 12, 2018 - 1:11:52

On today's show Sharp and Golliver celebrate the halfway point around the NBA by taking stock of a handful of wild cards after the first few months. First, they talk about the Miami Heat (2:00), whether they deserve real praise or generic praise, whether they can scare anyone in the playoffs, and where they will go from here. Then they talk about the red-hot Wolves (15:00) and where they fit in the West hierarchy, the Thunder and whether Paul George is secretly more valuable to title teams than Westbrook (22:00), the Clippers and whether they can make the playoffs (31:00), and the rise of Lauri Markkanen (38:00) forcing Golliver to break from his vegan diet to eat crow. At the end (49:00): they discuss irresponsible draft comps, and revisit their discussion of Lavar Ball (60:00) and the media after a week of good e-mails.
