The Dwight Howard dust has settled, at least a little, over the last week or so, but news keeps rolling in for the Lakers. And as long as it does, we”ll keep rolling out podcasts. The high points of our newest episode, or so we hope:
- Metta World Peace is now a New York Knickerbocker, signed to a free agent deal following the end of an eventful (and ultimately positive) run in L.A.. Any surprise the Lakers let him go? What exactly did the Lakers lose when making the decision to amnesty him?
- MWP is gone, but the Lakers have made three (ok, technically, two) additions over the last few days, on top of last week”s agreement with free agent center Chris Kaman (our thoughts on him, if you missed them, can be found around the 34-minute mark of our previous show). We break down the positives and negatives of Nick Young, Wesley Johnson, and the expected-to-be-signed former Laker Jordan Farmar.
- Howard is officially in Houston, and already looks more comfortable. AK takes a look at his first post-signing comments as a Rocket.
- Speaking of centers on the move, Andrew Bynum and Mike Brown are going to be re-united in Cleveland. Because that worked out so well the first time around. We know Brown”s a mensch. Any shot Bynum just doesn”t remember Brown was his coach before?
- We open the Twitter mailbag for a host of non-hoops related questions, from the proper time to shave one”s head to movies we admit enjoying only with a sense of shame to something about “real vs. fake booty.”
Finally, and future NBA-themed adult film star actors.
