Open Floor podcast: The Simmons vs. Ingram debate

Thursday March 17th, 2016

In the latest episode of the Open Floor podcast,'s Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver dip their toes into the college basketball waters and discuss the NCAA tournament, the Ben Simmons vs. Brandon Ingram debate and more.

The two start off the show by discussing potential NBA prospects in the tournament and offer comparisons to current pro players. They also examine the strengths and weaknesses of Simmons and Ingram and which players would be better fits on lottery teams.

Later, Sharp and Golliver get weird and discuss NBA/NCAA hypotheticals, including whether a trio of LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Curry could beat a college team. They also reexamine the annual Kentucky vs. an NBA team debate.
