The Los Angeles Lakers might actually be good. Even crazier: They might also be extremely likable. Our hosts react to a big win in San Antonio.

The 30

In this episode, Jas is joined by, well, me. To kick things off, we breakdown the Lakers’ 103-96 win over the Spurs and how fun it has been to see Dwight Howard playing as well as he is.

From there, we touch on Avery Bradley’s impact so far, and how his and Howard’s career trajectories have them both in the right spot.

Following that, Jas and I get into Magic Johnson’s resignation and how it helped the franchise become more forward-thinking. Then we get into what improvements the Lakers need to make in order to strengthen their roster, hint: Andre Iguodala would solve a lot of the issues.

To wrap things up, we look at the Lakers’ schedule over the first six weeks of the season and give our predictions on what their record will be at the 20-game mark.

Locked on Lakers

Coming off a fun win, I figured there’d be no one better to celebrate covering a good/fun team than Harrison. So we spend the first segment talking about Howard, who somehow serves as a perfect encapsulation for what we all look for in sports.

In segment two, we get into what we’ve seen from Kuzma thus far in these last couple games. It’s not that I’m worried per se, but it would’ve been nice to see, well, more.

We then finished the show by opening up the mailbag to take a few of your questions.
