It was a busy week in El Segundo!
Thursday, the Lakers did the expected, drafting Croatian center Ivica Zubac with the 32nd pick … and also Duke’s Brandon Ingram at #2. No big blockbusters for the purple and gold, who for the time being at least seem willing to let the young fellas grow. We break it down, along with the big deal of the day which sent Serge Ibaka to Orlando. What does that mean for Kevin Durant (and by extension, the Thunder, and by extension, the Lakers)?
From there, we talk Luke Walton, who was introduced earlier this week following Golden State’s Game 7 loss in the Finals. What were the standout moments in his first press conference as the coach of the Lakers?
All that and … well, mostly just that. But isn’t that enough?
