Lakers Podcast: Discussing D’Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram, and star power with Tim Bontemps

New, comments

Discussing the team’s rebuilding process and the players the organization has chosen to center themselves around.

NBA: Preseason-Sacramento Kings at Los Angeles Lakers Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

The Lakers are in completely uncharted territory. D’Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson all need the kind of nurturing it takes to be successful in the NBA. The question remains: Are the Lakers ready to provide the type of situation that lends itself to that type of growth?

After Harrison went on Facebook Live to do a quick rundown of tonight’s game, he and Anthony brought in Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post to discuss whether the Lakers are ready for that type of rebuild. On top of the organization’s ability to grow those youngsters, do the players, themselves, have the talent and potential to make it work even if provided a proper launching pad?

There’s a lot to discuss here, and Tim was great throughout the show, so enjoy.
