In a collaboration between The Hoop Collective and The Right Time, Bomani is joined by ESPN NBA analyst Brian Windhorst (2:48), NBA agent Bill Duffy (18:20), NBAPA Executive Director Michele Roberts (28:01) and ESPN front office insider Bobby Marks (41:17) for the first edition of the new series "Baseline: The Supermax".

Bob Myers couldn't even muster up any type of Tears at all. if he was so heartbroken over it you would have had some type of Tears or tear drop or something if you watch the video no tears I just can't believe he was at shocked or hurt by Kevin Durant's injury.

The segment on The White House meal was very intriguing. Also the "still in the league" segment was classic. That's always the case when you find out somebody who we didn't think was still in the league is... Awesome podcast. Where can I leave the 5 star ratings
