Lakers Podcast: Do the Lakers or Celtics have the brighter future?

New, comments

Which of the two longtime rivals are better set for success?

NBA: Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Lakers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

With the holiday weekend behind them, it was time to get the Locked on Lakers shows back on track. So, what better way to do that than to have a guest on in Harrison’s place? The answer: There is no better way.

So, Anthony welcomed James Holas of Bball Breakdown on the show to get into the rebuilding processes of the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics. James is actually higher on where the Lakers might be going than his own Celtics, and has a great explanation as to why.

Before that, the two talked about Russell Westbrook’s reception among NBA Twitter personalities and what that might say about how Kobe Bryant might’ve been seen if Twitter was around back then.

For some reason, there’s been an ongoing rivalry between fun and analytics in the NBA. James and Anthony dive into where that came from and whether there’s a way to stop the evolution of analysis from reaching a point where the two are mutually exclusive.

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.
