Lakers Podcast: Could D'Angelo Russell get some All-Star buzz?

Usually, getting one’s hopes up ends in disaster. Here’s how this year is different.

Over the last couple Lakers seasons, a great game was almost bittersweet. Sure, in the moment, fans could cheer about that particular experience but still have that annoying thought in the back of their minds that their excitement would probably be short-lived.

Darius Soriano of Forum Blue & Gold joined Anthony to talk about how this year, it’s different. Just as these young Lakers have to unlearn bad habits, we as fans get to unlearn the aforementioned daunting thoughts that used to follow positivity.

Then, in a rapid fire segment of sorts, Anthony presented Darius with a few insomnia-driven expectations and the two discussed how realistic they might be. Could D’Angelo Russell get All Star buzz? Why should fans dismiss scoring expectations from Brandon Ingram? Listen and find out.
