Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - March 30, 2018 - 1:19:06

On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin recording five minutes after finding out that Joel Embiid will miss the next 2-4 weeks with a fractured orbital bone. As they sort through their emotions, they discuss why this is Ben's fault and Markelle Fultz shouldn't be blamed (2:00), how much this hurts the playoffs, potential silver linings for the Sixers (10:00), and how this will affect Ben Simmons (18:00). Then: potential playoff race tanking scenarios in Washington and OKC (23:00), reactions to Kevin Durant's war on blog boys (31:00), more thoughts on the dangers of worst day analysis (40:00), rethinking the end of peak Steph Curry (45:00), and the state of Giannis Inc. (50:00). At the end (60:00): minutes management and the Wolves, Karl Towns and e-Sports disrespect, the metric system, Melbourne, Sister Jean beef, and playoff wagers.
