Lakers Podcast: Why did it take so long for D’Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson to start together?

We discussed all the latest news around Los Angeles, including their big starting lineup change.

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Los Angeles Lakers Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers may have lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers Sunday, but the story of the game (and the weekend) was undoubtedly the superlative play of D’Angelo Russell. The Lakers young guard made his triumphant 40-point return to the team’s starting lineup alongside Jordan Clarkson, and it left hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin with just one question: Why did it take so long?

But first, Harrison and Anthony discussed the Lakers-Bucks fight, Draymond Green’s comments on Russell, as well as Harrison’s latest hot take. Then, the two talked about how Russell and Clarkson should be used and much more on the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.
