Playoff Preview and Awards Mailbag Extravaganza

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - April 14, 2017 - 1:24:24

On today's episode, Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver preview the playoffs with help from listeners. First, Golliver makes an early upset pick in the East, Sharp picks his favorite future bets, and they discuss whether it's actually healthy for the Bulls to make a playoff push. Then: Could the Bucks scare the Raptors? Who's got the better Big 3 in Clips-Jazz, and who's got the most enticing free agent this summer? Did John Wall deserve MVP love? Did Rich Paul mastermind an Eastern Conference playoff conspiracy? Is Kyrie Irving overrated? At 45 minutes, they re-enter the MVP discussion, and then select other awards such as Least Valuable Player, Coldest Take, League Pass All-Star Teams, 6'10 All-Stars vs. 6'4 All-Stars, Hipster MVP, and more. At the end: They say goodbye to the regular season by resolving the Nutella pronunciation debate.
