The NBA sets return plans & an all-quarantine draft

The NBA sets return plans & an all-quarantine draft

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - June 5, 2020 - 1:12:51

Ben Golliver and Michael Pina open by recapping the NBA's 22-team return-to-play plan. Was it a good compromise, a money grab or both? Will it succeed in generating interest out of the gate? From there, they draft their all-quarantine teams, putting together eight-man rosters of the guys they expect to play well, and play well together, in Orlando's unique circumstances. Who will thrive without fans? Who will suffer? Which stars will be in tip top shape? How much should a TV-friendly roster matter? At the end, they challenge the Open Floor Globe to vote on whether Ben or Michael drafted the better squad.
