Exhale, Lakers fans. The worst news is off the table.
Join Ethan on a solo ride on the Hoop Ball Lakers pod to answer the obvious question: Where do the Lakers go from here? Could Andre Drummond, or *gulp,* even Blake Griffin be a potential option? Or will Kyle Kuzma, THT, Trez, and Markieff Morris be enough to fill the void? Ethan looks at what the Lakers can do in the starting lineup, their replacement options, and breaks down the pre-All-Star-Break schedule to see just how bad of shape the Lakers are in without AD available–especially on defense. The LeBron tax just skyrocketed, but the news could have been so much worse for the Lakers and Anthony Davis. Ethan calms you down, tells you to breathe, and delivers a rational take on the Lakers short-term outlook sans The Brow.
