Warriors Game 1, Role Player's Revenge, and More Mailbag

Warriors Game 1, Role Player's Revenge, and More Mailbag

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - June 2, 2017 - 1:23:04

On today's show, Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver review Game 1 of the Finals and answer more questions from listeners. First: Is Kevin Durant still a "role player"? Do the Cavs have anyone who can guard him? What else did we learn from Game 1? Then: Who are history's greatest role players? If the Cavs could add anyone from a non-playoff team, would it be enough to swing the series? If LeBron gets swept for a second Finals, should that count against him in the MJ debate? What happens if these teams own the entire decade? What's Adam Silver's role in all this? And at the 60-minute mark: Next year's best hipster teams, war with the Sixers, Finnish hoops, and lectures from Australia.
