But what will Johnson’s tenure really bring for the Lakers? To figure it out, hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin were joined by Darius Soriano of Forum Blue and Gold to debate what they think could be the pros and cons of Johnson’s return (plus a little bit on D’Angelo Russell’s minutes) on the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.
