A great cant miss interview with one of the exciting college players in the game. Also NLP Specialist Art Rondeau joins us on our segement of 'The Breakdown' to look further on how NLP while considered 'rouge' as approach to psychological sports performance has indeed shown proven results, and he believes that when implemented the barriers that might hamper star players like Derrick Rose and Kevin Durant will be critical coming off their recent rash of injuries.  We also weigh in on the love-hate relationship with Lebron James and Kevin Love. Will this cause a problem moving forward during the playoffs? Does it even matter when the overall goal is to get to a NBA Finals? We'll look at who would be more impacted by this situation that seems to be developing more and more through leaked sources beyond the locker room  Is resting players a great strategy for head coaches planning for the playoffs or in the long term will it hurt the overall product of what the NBA endorses to the fans? Shaw and I discuss on what has now become a disturbing trend in the quality of games affected by this move now implemented by most coaches to sit their star players for a number of games on the backend of a season where their outcome has already been dictated before season's end So buckle up and get locked in with us as we kick off your NBA Week with a great show on The Baseline NBA Podcast

Ep 115 | Anthony Slater from The Oklahoman Joins | Russ Westbrook Shoulders Thunder| Steve Nash Retirement | Who ya Got: Brandon Knight or MCW

Mar 23, 2015 - 01:01:01

While last week we had this ideal concept of basketball escapism and came up with this crazy notion of involving us basketball fanatics in this "bracketology" March Madness tourney pick em, reality set in very quickly for Shaw and myself that maybe we ought to stick to what we know best which is delivery you the goods on your "Association", so while being in a philanthropic mood to fully clothe some of Basketball Junkies with Foot Locker gear, we made sure we kept our "Eye on Basketball" in the NBA  This week Anthony Slater, Beat Writer for the Oklahoman joins the show to talk about the most unfortunate, misfortunate, highly combustible, and dangerously unstable OKC Thunder, and just how dangerous this team can be with the level of play from Russell Westrbook and with the news that Kevin Durant may be shut down for the remainder of the season. How deep is this team? and with the pending decisions to come how can if affect this window of opportunity for the NBAs most lethal duo.  Also we revisit the Rookie Chase in the NBA, while the media pundits handed the ROY honors automatically to Andrew Wiggins, Im not fully convinced that Wiggins is deserved such entitlement. There are 3 other guys who should get serious consideration and one who is basically the 2nd best player on a playoff team who at the beginning of the season barely saw more minutes that Doug McBuckets. Well talk about each  We also take a brief look at the play of Steve Nash as he formally hangs up the Low Mids after a resilient 19 year career as being among the best PG's of our generation. Hear why we believe he transcended and was practically the architect for this exciting play of basketball that play before your eyes. I also believe he was the true NBA Story of David Slaying the Goliath at the height of his NBA Domination.  We also got a ton of topics for Coast to Coast which includes one of the NBA Greats seeking to be involved in the Front Office for the franchise that started his career. Well tell you who and why?  All this and a lot more griping of how ridic our NCAA Bracket Picks were on another great edition of The NBA Baseline with Cal Lee and Warren Shaw

Phil Jackson takes on the challenge of his 1st offseason as President of BasketBall Ops for the New York Knicks, hires his 2nd Protege Derek Fisher as the head coach, and somehow managed to get Carmelo Anthony to resign to a max deal. Will the Knicks and the new triangle offense defy the laws of mediocrity and exceed expectations? Will this offense make Carmelo an even more complete player than before? Who will step up and be #2 scorer? Boston Celtics struggled to keep their best players healthy, only getting Rajon Rondo 2nd half of last season. With all the offseason moves and not one of them trading the maligned all star point guard, who will explode onto the scene and put their imprint on this team moving forward. Can Brad Stevens sift through the log jam of small forwards and guards on this team and figure who his core guys will be moving forward. Will Rajon still be the PG by seasons end or will the era of Marcus Smart begin sooner than later? The Sixers are going through more than a rebuilding process, it looks like a reclamation project. Too many tender limbs are stifling an accelerated maturation process for guys like Michael Carter Williams, Nerlens Noel and their recent First round draft pick Joel Embiid. Still Sam Hinkie believes in the potential these guys can bring to the table. Can the Philly fan base endure another season of 20+ consecutive losses in a row, and the assembly of unproven talent? Do the Sixers have plans to put MCW on the trading block for the right price? Can this team be any worse than what they were last season? We look to answer all these questions and then some on The Baseline

Ep 90 | SouthWest Division Preview | Real GM Shams Charania | Spurs Deep But Can They Repeat?

Oct 17, 2014 - 01:11:20

Cal Lee and Warren Shaw bring you another edition of The Baseline, this time previewing the Southwest Division. Some of the best ball is played on the west coast and the Southwest Division is loaded with talent highlighted by the defending champions—the San Antonio Spurs.   To help preview the division The Baseline welcomes one of the best young writers/reporters in the NBA, Shams Charania from RealGm.com. In this preview we discuss:   Are the Spurs capable of staying healthy and repeating as Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Giniboli are another year older? Is Kawhi Leonard ready for stardom or does he have to wait till one of the San Antonio big three retires?   In Houston, gone are Chandler Parsons and Jeremy Lin but Trevor Ariza has entered the fold for the Rockets. James Harden and Dwight Howard have been accused of being the “cool kids” but can they mature and play enough defense to keep the Rockets on the rise?   Dirk Nowitzki took less to help the Mavericks field a competitive team. Will the reunion with Tyson Chandler and addition of Parsons give Dallas the added push towards SW division elite? Will the trio of point guards (Jameer Nelson, Devin Harris and Raymond Felton) stay healthy and stay out of each other’s way on the court?   Marc Gasol’s injury set the Grizzlies back last season but now that he’s healthy Memphis looks to pound their opponents and rack up another 50 plus win season. Zach Randolph got a new deal and Vince Carter was added as the Grizzlies attempt to get out of the west one more time.   Anthony Davis is the Samsung of the NBA being dubbed the next big thing. Is his rise to elite status enough to see the Pelicans fly? The situation looks bleak unless Jrue Holiday, Ryan Anderson, Tyreke Evans and Eric Gordon can all stay healthy to provide the support fitting of a superstar.    You don’t want to miss this edition of The Baseline as break down all that and more burning questions from the Southwest Division.

Ep 89 | Central Division Preview | Are Cavs the class of the Central?

Oct 10, 2014 - 01:04:31

Cal Lee and Warren continue its preview series for the 2014-2015 NBA season as we examine the Central Division.   What was once a division dominated by the Indiana Pacers, now has two possibly three teams that can wind up winning this division  Are the Cleveland Cavaliers deep enough to take the division? Did David Griffin do enough to put Lebron over the top or will their lack of depth at the point guard position haunt the Cavs opportunity at a championship run? The Chicago Bulls are good, "scary" good. But are they too good to be true? Even with all this talent at head coach Tom Thibedeau's disposal, can he manage this team for the full 82 and not burnt out his starting 5? Media heads put the Bulls over the Cavs even with Lebron James in the picture, but only if a healthy Derrick Rose is active for the full season. Look for these two teams to battle to very end of the regular season for Central Supremacy So what becomes of the Indiana Pacers, a team who for the last two years have raised the eyebrows and expectations to finally dethron Lebron James and his Eastern Conference dominance, but this offseason has been a nightmare, and now with the injury to Paul George, the Pacers may be fighting the possibility of a losing season unless Frank Vogel can figure out a way to get the most out his team in a division which has deep with competitive talent. We breakdown the "broken" down Pacers and whether this season may be a wash when its all said and done The Detroit Pistons has cleaned house, and with Stan Van Gundy as their President and head coach, many feel he is the right man to rejuvenate a befuddled offense in the Motor City. While Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings are seeking Hoop Redemption, the emergence of Andre Drummond has rekindled a level of excitement fans are seeking in the Palace. They have reached "Bad Boys" status yet, but a couple of upset victories over some legit  teams and serious run in the Cental may change all of that.  Milwaukee Bucks look like a team after the wrong block is pulled from the Jenga deck. A team with unknown talent, with a quircky unknown head coach in Jason Kidd may mean another struggling Sub 30 win season, but the upside of Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo may give Bucks fans a little hope and also the opportunity to see Lebron James more than once in a season again.  The Central will become must see tv as arguably the 2 best teams in the Eastern Conference will battle for tops in the division.
