Nice vibe

Show has a nice vibe. Can tell that the hosts are old school hip hop heads but they know their hoops!

My NBA go to spot

The Baseline has been my favorite NBA podcast for years. Knowledgeable and insightful. Recently they have added a 3rd member to the podcast, and it has been a seamless transition. Like adding Hakeem to the original dream team! Fantastic.
