Open Floor Podcast: USA Basketball winners and losers from Rio

With the Olympics behind us, Sports Illustrated reflects on the USA Basketball winners and losers from Rio. 

After Team USA's dominating gold medal win over Serbia, Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver catch up to talk about the past month of hoops. There's a lot to touch on, as Kevin Durant emerged in the title game, Carmelo Anthony announced his Olympics retirement, and much more went down. 

The guys also dig deeper into Team USA storylines, asking who made the most of this experience, who struggled, and who's coming next in 2020. So many players elected to stay home from Rio that the crop for Tokyo could be star-studded, which made for an interesting conversation. Hey, even LeBron James left the door open. ​
