NBA players voice concerns about Orlando return

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - June 16, 2020 - 1:16:57

Ben Golliver and Michael Pina react to the NBA players' various concerns about the Orlando return plan. What is Kyrie Irving's role in all of this? What did Damian Lillard tell Michael about his stance? Will basketball distract from the ongoing social justice protests? What would happen if the players collectively chose not to play? Have the health and safety questions been answered? Will the plan stay on track? From there, Ben and Michael shift gears to answer questions from the Open Floor Globe. Can the NBA incorporate fans into the visual and audio experiences? Which teams will be hurt the most by the long lay-off? Finally, who would be the worst person to present the Finals MVP trophy if Bill Russell can't make it to Orlando?
