We recorded this one on Thursday ahead of the Portland and Brooklyn games, but technical problems kept it off the interwebs. Good news: This stuff is pretty evergreen. (As is the commentary on Fantasy Football that opens the show. Got a feeling we hit on things many, many, many of those listening will recognize.)
The Lakers are actually playing defense through (now) eight games this year. Is it sustainable? Yes, we’re asking that question: Could the Lakers defense actually be… good? And how sustainable are we talking, here? What happens now that Larry Nance Jr. is out of the lineup for at least a month? And will there be any regret long term for letting D’Angelo Russell go?
