The NBA game goes on in China, Zion hype heats up, the next Jrue contract

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - October 11, 2019 - 1:05:50

On today's show, Ben Golliver and Rob Mahoney detail the latest developments from the NBA's China crisis. What should James Harden make of Daryl Morey? Did Adam Silver let down the media by allowing the Lakers and Nets to play without conducting press conferences? Do Steve Kerr and Gregg Popovich deserve heat for sidestepping the controversy? Then, Ben and Rob field questions from the Open Floor Globe on Zion Williamson's debut week, which players have the chance to surprisingly live up to their massive contracts a la Jrue Holiday, and whether the NBA intelligentsia has it all wrong on the depressing Hornets.
