Summer 16 is drawing to a close with just over two months before the season start and a little over a month before training camp. We have the tidings to hold you over on the latest edition of The Baseline. On this week’s show:
- We give our final impressions of Team USA after they captured gold in Rio. Is Carmelo Anthony the greatest Olympic basketball player? Did DeMarcus Cousins, Harrison Barnes and Jimmy Butler grow from this experience? Did Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson create a bond that will carry over into the regular season?
- Road to Recovery: We discuss which players are poised to make an impact after significant injuries. We’ll touch on Marc Gasol, Eric Gordon, Joel Embiid, John Wall, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Chandler Parsons, Chris Bosh and more.
