Lakers Podcast: Let’s talk about Julius Randle and the starting lineup

Hold on tight, folks.

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Portland Trail Blazers Craig Mitchelldyer-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers lost yet again, but that isn’t news anymore. No, it’s time for social media’s favorite pastime: talking about the future of Julius Randle. Oh, and the starting lineup. That has to come up, too.

Before all of that, Harrison and Anthony bring up yet another unfortunate truth of the Jim Buss era: The Timofey Mozgov and Luol Deng contracts have not been... how do you put it... good. Are they another nail in Jim’s metaphorical coffin? The guys agree on this one.

Where they somewhat disagree is on how best to handle the starting lineup. They both think a couple tweaks should be made, but which ones they go with slightly differ from each other.

From there, they take up the Randle conversation, which seems to grip Lakers Twitter like few other things. I came up with a theory on why people seem to ride such a roller coaster when it comes to Randle.
