NBA: Los Angeles Lakers-Media Day Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers are in the midst of a full-scale rebuild, but there finally seems to be hope on the horizon. The positivity is positively flowing out of the first week of the team’s camp in Santa Barbara, and hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin couldn’t think of a better person to discuss the state of the team with than the radio voice of the Lakers for ESPN 710, John Ireland.

Which member of the young core is most likely to break out? Should the team consider trading a package of them for an established star like DeMarcus Cousins? Harrison and Anthony discussed all of that, plus what goes into calling a game winner, his favorite story about Shaquille O’Neal, and much more with John on the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.
