Lakers Podcast: Should the Lakers start tanking?

New, comments

The season has taken a pretty ugly turn, so what might be best for the team?

NBA: Dallas Mavericks at Los Angeles Lakers Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers have essentially fallen off a cliff since a surprising 10-10 start, so Anthony thought it’d be a good idea to bring in an outside perspective (in this case, Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post) to explore what he’s noticed since the last time he was on the show. Basically, it isn’t good.

The conversation starts with looking at the Jeanie Buss/Phil Jackson dynamic from a New York perspective, seeing as he’s been based on the east coast for most of Jackson’s tenure. Bontemps and Anthony take a look at what the called-off engagement might mean for both the Knicks and Lakers.

Then, they get into the conversation mentioned above. What’s happened since that surprising start, and where might the Lakers sit moving forward?

Finally, Anthony runs his theory on how the Lakers are growing this young core together by Tim to see how it compares to how other teams are growing their futures.

Oh, and at the very beginning of the show, Anthony and Harrison answer your questions.
