Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - November 29, 2017 - 1:21:05

On today's show Sharp and Golliver catch up after their holiday break. They begin by talking through the bigger picture in OKC after one great win against Golden State and two bad losses against Detroit and Dallas. Is Billy Donovan the problem? How does Russell Westbrook affect a team's ceiling? How does Paul George compare to KD? Then (20:00) they discuss the sloppiness in Golden State, and where the Thunder will end up in April. From there (30:00): they break down the Fizdale firing in Memphis, the problems with "blow it up" logic in Memphis, and what Grizz decisions say about the NBA's small market blindspot. At the end (52:00): Pistons love, Lakers and Clippers reality check, pronunciation trauma, Golliver's fandom, the Open Floor survival kit, wine massages, and hosting Saturday Night Live.
