Goodbye Manu, Ranking Teams Without a Title, Midseason Tournament Ideas

Goodbye Manu, Ranking Teams Without a Title, Midseason Tournament Ideas

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - August 30, 2018 - 1:26:41

On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin the show with Ben airing a series of offseason grievances, and from there, they get into Manu Ginobili's retirement (8:00), what they'll remember most about his game, whether he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, the 2014 title against the Heat, and how the Spurs have changed over the past 20 years. Then they discuss NBA teams that have never won a title (26:00) and rank the chances of each team at eventually escaping the list. From there (43:00): whether Anthony Davis should abandon the Brow nickname and be rechristened as "the Sasqwitch", whether the NBA should look into midseason tournaments like European soccer (46:00), and the problems with blowing up the Wizards (55:00). At the end (65:00): Re-framing the Brad Stevens ownership question, Stevens vs. Kerr, sad Giannis blasphemy, and when to wear a Larry Bird jersey.
