Lakers Podcast: Figuring out why fans are so excited about this young Lakers team with Daniel Buerge

New, comments

What should we expect from the young core this year?

NBA: Summer League-Philadelphia 76ers vs Los Angeles Lakers Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers only won 17 games last year. So why are their fans so excited about a team with such a similar nucleus?

Most of the credit for that goes to the growth of the team's youngest players, a process many (including today's guest, Daniel Buerge of Time Warner Cable Sports) are excited to watch. He and host Anthony Irwin discussed their expectations for this team to kick off the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.

Later, the two discuss how Daniel got started blogging at Lakers Nation, as well as their thoughts on the current state of the industry and where it might be going as the way we cover sports on the internet continues to evolve.
