New year, new Los Angeles Lakers. Well, at least a couple of their young core took that sentiment to heart. Luke Walton praised Julius Randle and D’Angelo Russell for their work ethic of late, and it’s resulted in two of the most promising games the Lakers have played all season. So Anthony and Harrison try to figure out what it might mean for the season on the whole.

Anthony started the show with something of a mission statement about the show, because that’s the kind of thing you do when you’re exhausted and a listener asks an existential question over the weekend!

Then, with that behind them, the guys discuss how this recent success might feel different than that which the team enjoyed to start the year. Anthony was even willing to go into playoff talk.

And don’t worry, the two didn’t finish the show without a (very weird) discussion of Jordan Clarkson and Goran Dragic’s “fight.” Enjoy!
