Lakers Podcast: Can Nick Young actually play a role for the Lakers this year?

Plus, what will be the starting lineup and more of your questions about the team.

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

The Los Angeles Lakers, and their fans, are riding high after a 2-1 start to the preseason in which the team has looked better than they ever did during their prior 17-win campaign.

The strong start has raised all kinds of questions. Can D’Angelo Russell sustain his high level of play, and has he matured? Who will make the final roster? Could Nick Young, against all odds, actually play the role of veteran contributor for the team?

To overreact to all these preseason questions and more, host Harrison Faigen was joined by Silver Screen and Roll Editor-in-Chief Drew Garrison to discuss what they’ve seen around the team and in the locker room over the first week of exhibition play.

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:
