The end of 2019 marks the end of a decade. The Baseline brothers look to close out the year (and the decade) out in style. On this week’s show we discuss:
- Is Erik Spolestra getting enough credit for his coaching job?
- Hassan Whiteside was addition by subtraction allowing Bam Adebayo to assert himself as part of the team’s present and future.
- How was Jimmy Butler acquitted himself as a leader for this upstart team?
- Kendrick Nunn, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson are providing an unexpected boost.
- Justise Winslow and Kelly Olynyk have yet to hit their stride and could provide a boost or trade value.
- Ethan suggests the team could be interested in Jrue Holiday and explains that there is more to the Dion Waiters scenario.
With 7 different champions in the 2010’s the NBA wasn’t as one-sided as many suggested.
- Cal picks the Cavs as his least impressive champion while Warren selects the Lakers who were the decade’s first winner.
- Which team surprised us the most with their title between the Mavericks and the Raptors?
- Which Warriors team was the best?
- Warren selects the Spurs as his revenge champion of the decade.
- LeBron James and Stephen Curry take the honors as champions of the decade with Kawhi Leonard right behind them.
