Opening Week Observations, Celtics and Sixers Status Updates, G-League Payment Plan

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - October 19, 2018 - 1:14:60

On today’s episode, before going to blockbuster Thursday night games (Wizards-Heat, Lakers-Blazers) Sharp and Golliver talk through the first two days of the NBA season. Topics include: the Bucks and the offense they always dreamed of, the Jason Kidd legacy, apologies to Malik Monk, salutations to the Hornets, the debut of the Raptors, a fantasy draft update, and a haunting KAT comparison. Then: the underwhelming first night of Rockets season (30:00), Carmelo concerns, and where Anthony Davis ranks at the top of the league. From there (40:00): They talk Sixers and the state of Markelle Fultz in the starting five, and then move to the Celtics and what the emergence of Jayson Tatum could mean for this season. At the end (60:00): thoughts on the new G-League rules, sympathy weight and the Wizards, and power rankings in Morocco.
