Lakers Podcast: What should fans expect from D’Angelo Russell this year?

Is the young guard ready to take the reins?

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Los Angeles Lakers Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

One of the central questions as the Los Angeles Lakers prepare for their season is how much the team will get from sophomore guard D’Angelo Russell.

Is last year’s second overall pick ready to be the team’s number one option? Or does he still need more time to grow into that role? Also, who will his backups be when Luke Walton decides to give him a breather?

Locked on Lakers hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin decided to discuss all of these point guard questions and more as part of the Locked on Network’s position previews week, brought to you by Seat Geek.
