The Los Angeles Lakers did their final bit of offseason bookkeeping in preparation for the start of training camp next week. The front office announced they had added Metta World Peace and Thomas Robinson to their training camp roster, thus bringing them to the maximum 20 players they can carry.
Can Robinson make the team? Will the Lakers give World Peace a chance? Hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin discussed that and more on the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.
Before that, the two chatted about Brandon Ingram’s memorable introduction to Los Angeles Sports fans at Dodger’s Stadium, and later in the show they broke down Julius Randle and Larry Nance, Jr.’s battle for minutes, and why Luol Deng might play more power forward than some fans think.
As a bonus for the power forward position preview episode, Harrison and Anthony also shared their thoughts on the retirements of Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, and Tim Duncan all in one offseason, as well as finishing with their take on D’Angelo Russell’s latest comments on the former coaching staff.
