The Los Angeles Lakers will kick off their season against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. The wait is over, and basketball is finally back.
How many games will the Lakers win? Do they have any chance to make more noise than people think in the Western Conference? Hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin gave their thoughts on all of those odds and more in the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.
Also discussed: the death of Anthony’s chances to play professionally in Europe, Kobe Bryant’s MVP odds (or lack thereof), and what odds the two would have to be given to bet on the Lakers to win the title.
