NBA trade season opens, favorite fake trades, "real fans"

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - December 17, 2019 - 1:05:47

On today's show, Ben Golliver and Michael Pina celebrate the Dec. 15 NBA trade-eligibility deadline by compiling their favorite fake trades. DeMar DeRozan to the Bulls? Kevin Love to the Suns? Kyle Lowry to the Jazz? Aaron Gordon to the Hawks? JJ Redick to the Bucks? Derrick Rose to the Sixers? From there, they propose rule changes that would make the trade deadline more fun. Ben and Michael close by taking questions from the Open Floor Globe on what it means to be a "real fan." Can a Thunder fan hop on the Grizzlies bandwagon? Can a LeBron James fan use "we" to describe the Lakers?
