Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - January 9, 2018 - 1:05:36

On today's show Sharp and Golliver begin by talking through Lavar Ball's comments about Luke Walton. First they discuss the role of Lonzo in all of this (1:00) and wonder why he hasn't stepped forward to explain how he feels about Walton. Then they consider Lavar Ball's role in everything (10:00) and debate whether the media deserves any blame for giving him a platform. From there they move to the Wizards and Bucks on Saturday night (23:00), the state of the Mavericks (30:00), and the players from the mid-2000s who would be even better today (40:00). At the end (47:00): Jimmy Butler is an El-Camino, Dennis Schroeder and the Hawks, and e-mailers compare NBA players to animals throughout history
