Trevor Ariza is out before he was in, Talen Horton-Tucker’s breakout campaign is on indefinite hold, and all of the sudden…the Lakers are rather thin on the wing.
Following a brief hiatus, the Hoop Ball Lakers podcast is back with the preseason in full swing, media day firmly in the rear view mirror, and a brand new Lakers team looking to leave their mark on the rest of the NBA. We return with a solo ride from Ethan in which he discusses the Lakers current injury woes, things that he’s liked in the preseason, questions the Lakers still have to answer, and opines on how fast this team can come together in order to show that change is good as LA tries to align its stars around LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
Whether it’s DeAndre Jordan playing the JaVale role, the types of lineups the Lakers can put around AD at center, who gets the bulk of the minutes on the wing—hello, Kent Bazemore—or other issues, the Lakers have plenty to figure out in a very brief period of time prior to the season tipping off.
Join Ethan for a 25-minute dive back into Lakerland as the club looks to cultivate that same sense of chemistry on the court that they’re clearly sharing off of it.
