Open Floor Podcast: Kobe's last stand, Nets' mess, Thunder's start and more

Tuesday November 10th, 2015

Two of the NBA's marquee franchises are also two of the league's biggest messes.

In the latest episode of Open Floor, SI's Chris Mannix chats with the New York Post's Tim Bontemps and USA Today's Sam Amick about the latest happenings around the league. Among the topics discussed with the two NBA insiders: Brooklyn's bleak outlook, Kobe Bryant's well-chronicled struggles and the Thunder's rocky start under Billy Donovan.

Later in the program, Mannix and Amick dive into the Sacramento Kings' ongoing rebuild and wonder who will get the blame if the team continues to lose. They also examine the Warriors' impressive start under interim coach Luke Walton and how much credit the former player deserves for Golden State's early success.
