Want the scoop on NBA Hoops? Ben Golliver’s Open Floor: SI’s NBA Show will never leave you disappointed and is one of the best NBA podcasts. 

From the NBA draft to the playoffs and back again, Ben Golliver and his co-host Michael Pina take you on the ride up and down the NBA standings, laying out the latest news and rumors along the way, and leaving no basketball conspiracy theory stone left unturned. 

An alum of Johns Hopkins University, Ben is a sports media veteran who has covered the NBA for more than a decade. Currently, he serves as National NBA Writer for The Washington Post.

His professional basketball writing career got off the ground when he self-published the “Draft Kevin Durant” blog, which documented the 2007 NBA Draft for the Portland Trail Blazers. 

In our exclusive interview with Ben on OPP with Corey Cambridge he chats about his early career and the making of the “Draft Kevin Durant” blog, 

“As a big fan of The Blazers, I was thinking this was a big moment for the franchise. I’m going to go home and start a blog and every hour that I am not working I am going to try and convince The Blazers to draft Kevin Durant. I was just trying to get on the map a little bit. I was crushed when The Blazers took (Greg) Oden. I was wrong! They didn’t listen to me but it put me on the map.” 

Ben’s unorthodox entry into the sports world is remarkable and he’s come a long way since then, landing gigs at CBSSports.com and he’s written multiple Sports Illustrated magazine cover stories. 

For lovers of the NBA, Ben, and co-host Michael Pina cover the game with great detail and you’ll never leave uninformed.  Episodes tip-off twice a week so be sure to checkout Open Floor: SI’s NBA Show, one of my favorite NBA podcasts on Apple, Spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts. 

Pod Bless,
