The Baseline: Discussing the Nuggets as key players in the West, Westbrook, Irving and more


On this week’s edition of The Baseline with Warren Shaw and Cal Lee discuss:

  • In New York, most are looking for fallout after the hiring Phil Jackson, but there are some who are looking to fall in line with the hiring STAT.
  • Drew Gooden is helping the Wizards forget about Nene, what has gotten into the journey man veteran?
  • In OKC, another injury scare to Russell Westbrook has coach Scott Brooks and management on maintenance mode. Will giving him the “Wade” treatment favor the Thunder’s hopes to reach the NBA Finals down the stretch?
  • In the West the Denver Nuggets are out of the playoff picture, Warren Shaw discusses that the road to glory may yet still go through the Mile High City.
  • Can the Hawks hold off the Knicks as both teams are on impressive stretches to capture that final playoff spot.
  • We also discuss Kyrie Irving being out, Steve Nash back in and the state of the Orlando Magic.

All this and much more on this week’s episode of The Baseline.
