In Defense of Lakers Rumors, Isaiah and LeBron, All-Decade Team

In Defense of Lakers Rumors, Isaiah and LeBron, All-Decade Team

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - January 5, 2018 - 1:18:55

On today's show Sharp and Golliver begin by taking stock of what's gone wrong with this season's Lakers (2:00), what's possible this summer, and whether the steady stream of "LOL Lakers" articles make any sense. Then, they discuss Isaiah Thomas' return for the Cavs (19:00), LeBron's staggering numbers 15 years in (24:00), and whether it's possible for either one of them to say something nice about the Celtics (30:00). From there they check in with DeMar DeRozan and the Toronto termites (39:00), Aaron Gordon and the Magic (45:00), and life with Fred Hoiberg in Chicago (52:00). At the end (56:00): they argue about the All-Decade team for the 2010s, listening to sports on the radio, the best old team names, 2018 resolutions, and some final thoughts from #brickheads and a trip to Lego Land.
