Lakers Podcast: ESPN’s John Ireland thinks Magic Johnson will ‘shuffle the deck’ this summer

New, comments

There could be big changes on the horizon for Los Angeles’ roster.

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Oklahoma City Thunder Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Media exit interviews continue on Locked on Lakers, this time with ESPN and Spectrum SportsNet’s John Ireland, who joined for what is now his third show.

Before he joined, we intro’d the show by covering some of the day’s topics, starting with Magic Johnson being so adamant about the Lakers’ conditioning. It also turns out I don’t know nearly enough about my wife’s education.

Then, we’d be remiss not to mention the vitriol resulting from a column I wrote about the Lakers and Carmelo Anthony. Harrison gives his take on the potential trade as well.

After the break, John joins to talk about how he feels about the season looking back, how surprised he was at Mitch Kupchak’s departure and how he thinks the off-season will shake out.

He’s of the mind that this will be a very busy summer for the Lakers, and gives his thinking on why.

To finish the show, John tells an absolutely incredible Mychal Thompson and Chick Hearn story. You won’t want to miss that.

As always, if you enjoy the show, you can find our iTunes channel here (and give us a nice rating if you’re so inclined), or you can listen to the podcast directly through Audioboom below.
