Impromptu Dirk Farewell, Big Picture Playoff Questions, Kings and Lakers Chaos

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - April 12, 2019 - 1:29:51

On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin with some thoughts on Dirk Nowitzki and everything that made his career so enjoyable. Then (17:00): Finals predictions and various narrative arcs at war in Sharp’s head, the final day of the regular season, the playoff outlook for Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets, and how we might remember this Warriors era. From there (42:00): Making sense of the Kings coaching change and then shifting to the Magic Johnson resignation, what’s wrong in LA, and where they may go from here. At the end (1:08): Leftover thoughts on the MVP race and a nation of grumpy Rockets fans, Anthony Davis and his t-shirt, a Wizards hypothetical, and Golliver poisoning the youth of America.
