NBA superstars mobilize for social justice

NBA superstars mobilize for social justice

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - June 12, 2020 - 1:17:10

Ben Golliver and Michael Pina open by surveying the superstar landscape to detail how the NBA community is gearing up in the wake of George Floyd's death. LeBron James tackles voting rights, Michael Jordan donates $100 million, Kevin Durant calls for fair treatment of the police officers involved in Minneapolis, Giannis Antetokounmpo seeks to better Milwaukee, Russell Westbrook funds a documentary about Tulsa, and Stephen Curry protests and chants about President Trump. After digging into each of those topics, Ben and Michael take questions from the Open Floor Globe about their all-quarantine draft from last week. Which team did the Globe think won? Who had a better draft strategy? Could a Globe member field a better team? Why were Luka Doncic and Marcus Smart snubbed?
