Lakers First Impressions, Doncic vs. the Ducks, Obligatory Butler Trade Ideas

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - October 2, 2018 - 1:16:42

On today's podcast Sharp and Golliver catch up to talk through the state of the Lakers as the season begins. Topics include: the re-emergence of the internet's Lakers fans, their lack of dependable big men, worries about veterans and young players, the challenge for LeBron, and how many of this year's players will be around by the beginning of next season. From there (30:00) they move to a social media lecture from Golliver, as well as some quick thoughts after a weekend on Tobacco Road. Then (38:00): Why Jimmy Butler on the Mavs would probably be a bad idea, and some responses after the internet caught on to last week's Luka Doncic discussion. From there (49:00): Why Butler on the Rockets would be the best possible ending, and at the end (60:00), Rockets-Warriors resolution, origins of KD angst, and a haunting John Wall metaphor.
