Lakers Podcast: How would Lonzo Ball and Paul George fit with this roster?

New, comments

This could (actually) be fun.

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Los Angeles Lakers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Fans of the Los Angeles Lakers can finally say something they might not have been able to over the last five years and change: They know where the team they root for is going.

There is a general direction and plan laid out by which the Lakers can continue to take shape and compete in this insane western conference.

Lonzo Ball is the odds on favorite to be drafted and play alongside D’Angelo Russell next year.

Next summer, there’s a very good chance Paul George could be added to the mix to inject that superstardom the franchise has desperately needed.

Things are looking up in ways it honestly hasn’t felt possible for way too long, but some questions remains.

First, how does this current roster fit as is?

Then, how would it work if Ball is drafted?

And finally, if George does arrive in a year without major changes around him, how would everything fit?

To answer those questions and more, Anthony welcomes Pete Zayas (@LakerFilmRoom). Harrison (studying Kardashians) could not make it.

This was a very fun conversation covering the potential growth of what could be a very exciting team both this year and for the foreseeable future.
