Podcast: No one is actually taking this Chicago, Anthony Davis free agency story seriously, right?

New, comment

Lakers star Anthony Davis said what he had to say when asked about joining Chicago in free agency one day. But no one should actually freak out about this.

Minutes before we started recording, a video surfaced of Anthony Davis answering a question about one day maybe playing for the Chicago Bulls organization he grew up rooting for, as a native of the city. He alluded to his impending free agency, but come on, no one is actually worried about this, are they?

Lake Show

Harrison and I start the show by addressing the aforementioned Davis video and having a little bit of fun with it. Under what circumstances would an American athlete come out and say they wouldn’t want to play for their hometown team? If it isn’t obvious by now, neither Harrison nor I are all that worried about this storyline.

From there, we have some fun with small sample sizes as Harrison asks me about various statistics or trends being sustainable or not. He tried to goat me into a Rajon Rondo response, but I simply would not abide such treachery.

We wrap up the show with the latest chapter in Byron Scott’s seemingly never-ending book.

Locked on Lakers

On today’s show, Pete and I continue to enjoy Dwight Howard’s resurgence, and actually start the mailbag with a question about whether the fire he’s playing with right now would dissipate if he was rewarded for this early strong play with a spot in the starting lineup.

Other topics via the mailbag included NBA tattoos, how athletic this team is compared to years past, Jamal Crawford and other potential additions to the roster over the course of the season, and more.
