New, comments

It’s time to talk about Los Angeles’ promising power forward, and the more positive narrative surrounding the young core.

The summers of D’Angelo Russell and Brandon Ingram have been the main topics of discussion around the Los Angeles Lakers in recent weeks, but now it’s Julius Randle’s time to shine. The 2014 lottery pick revealed details about his offseason workout routine and was showered with praise by Gregg Popovich on Wednesday, so hosts Anthony Irwin and Harrison Faigen decided now was as good a time to re-evaluate Randle as any.

After arguing on a gondola about whether or not Larry Nance, Jr. was a better prospect than Randle moving forward just over a week ago, has the third-year forward’s time training with Team USA changed either of their minds? Anthony and Harrison discuss that, the improving narrative surrounding the rest of the young core, and the rest of the latest from Las Vegas on the newest episode of Locked on Lakers.
