Ten predictions for the new NBA playoffs

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - June 9, 2020 - 1:15:04

Ben Golliver and Michael Pina dive headfirst into an impossible task: trying to predict the most unpredictable playoffs in NBA history. Will the NBA be able to keep its players safe and crown a champion? If so, who will win the title and Finals MVP? Will there actually be a play-in round? Will the extra eight regular season games influence the NBA award races? How will the neutral site impact the length of series? Will we see any noticeable differences from the referees? What aspect of the television product will Basketball Twitter whine about the most? How many owners will appear in the bubble? Should Michael Jordan make an appearance?
