Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - July 2, 2018 - 1:17:43

On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver react to Sunday night's @KlutchSports exclusive by discussing all angles of LeBron on the Lakers. First: processing the LeBron signing with a side of Lance Stephenson and Javale McGee. Then (7:00): Paul George's cold shoulder and the challenge LeBron may or may not have recruiting stars over the next few years. From there (14:00): An extensive and occasionally heated debate over whether the Lakers were the best choice for LeBron, what motivated this move in the end, and whether this will succeed. At the end (45:00): similarities and differences between LeBron and Kobe, the understated rollout, front office influence with Magic and Pelinka, and the triumph of the LeBronzo prophecy.
