Who are the NBA's heels? Did the 2010 Celtics break LeBron? What's up with Ayton?

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - December 19, 2019 - 1:05:41

On today's show, Ben Golliver and Michael Pina are joined by special guest Captain Accountability, who has many thoughts on Deandre Ayton's return from a 25-game drug suspension. From there, Ben and Michael dig into Kevin Garnett's comments about LeBron James. Did the Celtics break LeBron in 2010? Did KG leave out some important details from the conversation? KG was an all-time NBA heel, but who are the best NBA heels right now? And will the Lakers, Clippers, Rockets or Sixers emerge as the league's most hated team come playoff time? Then, the Open Floor Globe checks in with fake trades involving Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, plus an extended riff on John Coltrane and player development.
