We’re entering the second week of the NBA season with injuries and COVID-19 protocols already starting to mount. Still, the league presses on and The Baseline boys continue to cover the league in a full-court press format. On this week’s show we’ll discuss:
- Spencer Dinwiddie out indefinitely with a partial ACL tear
- Karl-Anthony Towns nursing a dislocated wrist
- TJ Warren out indefinitely after foot surgery
- Donnie Walsh retires
- Paul Westphal Passes away
Is Ja Morant‘s injury a season killer for the Memphis Grizzlies with Jaren Jackson Jr. & Justise Winslow also on the shelf? Or can Dillon Brooks, Kyle Anderson and Jonas Valanciunas keep the team afloat with the help of Brandon Clarke and the rest of the bench?
We ponder if the team needs to play slower, rely on defense or seek a trade to keep the ship afloat. Or should this be a year of development in preparation for what is supposed to be a loaded draft class?
We bring a new segment to the show with our adopt a player concept discussing guys who are set to make a splash in the league given the right opportunity. It’s our first edition of “Young Son”
- Cal’s picks
- Shaw’s picks
Tune in and give us your thoughts.
