Open Floor Podcast: Breaking down’s Top 100 NBA players of 2017

After a month off from the Open Floor Podcast, Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver reunite to argue about Sports Illustrated's Top 100 NBA players of 2017 rankings. Sharp cross-examines Golliver on some of the choices he and Rob Mahoney made in constructing the much-discussed list that has caught the eyes of NBA stars like Isaiah Thomas and DeMar DeRozan. 

While Sharp presented Golliver with a long list of questions, here are a few of the biggest topics: Is Devin Booker (100) too low? What do we make of Bradley Beal (58)? Why is LaMarcus Aldridge (11) so high? Is Russell Westbrook a top five player? And where should we put Kyrie Irving (25)?
