Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - August 15, 2018 - 1:29:40

On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin by talking all things Carmelo Anthony. First they discuss how he might fit in Houston, why low expectations could be healthy after OKC, and what's on the table going forward. Then (14:00) they talk through Carmelo's career arc generally, internet criticism, hats, watches, and MVP votes. From there (27:00): Projecting the wins total for the Grizzlies next season, assessing problems on the wing, and walking through the life cycle of a bad contract. Then: Andrew Wiggins vs. Devin Booker and what makes an elite wing (39:00), when to give up hope for young prospects (50:00), and projecting the Warriors while remembering that Steph Curry is outrageous. At the end (70:00): Revisiting last week's history lesson, remembering cringeworthy celebrity encounters, and more Shaq vs. Duncan stats.
