LeBron Passes Jordan, Viking Funeral for the Lakers, D'Angelo vs. Kyrie

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - March 8, 2019 - 1:15:10

On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin the show by agreeing that this is the last week of Lakers takes, but on the way out, there has to be one, final deep dive. At the start: Reconsidering LeBron James and the night he passed Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list, whether he was crying into that towel, and a conversation about what we've learned about LeBron over the past 16 seasons. From there: Whether Lakers will boo when LeBron passes Kobe on the all-time scoring list, whether this Lakers season is worse than the Kobe/Dwight partnership in 2013, and whether the L.A. front office has secretly been as incompetent as the Phoenix Suns. At the end: Russell Westbrook and whether he's properly appreciated, reliving the great Jordan Brand betrayal of 2016, D'Angelo Russell vs. Kyrie Irving, and a preview of topics we wanted to talk about before deciding to wait until next week.
