LeBron James is on his way back into Miami again to face the Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers are still at the top of the league. Our hosts tackle all the storylines heading into the game.
I Love Basketball
As the Lakers continue to rack up wins, a fun parlor game has become trying to determine the team’s MVP. LeBron James leads the offense while Anthony Davis quarterbacks the defense, but which player’s total contributions make them more valuable? Sabreena and Honi Ahmadian of Lakers Outsiders discussed each star’s performance thus far and try to decide who has been more important to the team’s success.
Then, with Avery Bradley back from injury, Sabreena and Honi go through the pros and cons of keeping Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in the starting lineup versus returning Bradley to his starting role.

Locked on Lakers
Pete and I had every intention to come up with our own topics heading into what should be a fun game in Miami, but the listener questions were just too good to pass up. Sometimes there’s just no point in fighting what just makes more sense anyway, kind of like Vogel starting Bradley as he gets healthier even if it might hurt Caldwell-Pope’s overall production.
Topics included whether the Lakers would still be this good with Tyronn Lue at the helm instead of Frank Vogel, the Lakers’ policy regarding retiring jerseys, Robert Horry’s place in history, and plenty more.
