Lakers Podcast: Comparing D’Angelo Russell and Emmanuel Mudiay with Adam Mares

A couple of the league’s youngest teams matched up over the last couple games.

NBA: Preseason-Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

For the first half of the show, Anthony responds to what he saw in the Lakers’ victory over the Denver Nuggets. D’Angelo Russell was as impressive as we’ve seen him this preseason, making fellow lottery-pick guard Emmanuel Mudiay look completely outclassed for the second match-up in a row.

Luke Walton doled out minutes in an interesting manner, so Anthony discussed what that might mean moving forward. Finally, he broke down both Nick Young and Lou Williams’ efforts Sunday night. Plenty to like there.

In the second half of the show, Anthony was joined by Adam Mares of Denver Stiffs to compare the young cores of the Lakers and Nuggets, but from each other’s perspectives. You’ve obviously heard Anthony and Harrison talk about what they think of the kids, but hearing an outside voice allows for some interesting angles we might now have covered before.

As always, if you enjoy the show, you can find our iTunes channel here (and give us a nice rating if you’re so inclined), or you can listen to the podcast directly through Audioboom below. Lastly, don’t forget to follow Harrison and Anthony on Twitter at @hmfaigen and @AnthonyIrwinLA:
