Coming off of a statement win against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday, our hosts talk about the hot streak the Los Angeles Lakers are on, and even chat with a Laker about how the season has gone.

Can You Dig It?

On this week’s episode of “Can You Dig It?”, Jacob and I quickly went over the Lakers’ win against the Jazz before welcoming Danny Green to the show to talk about his season with the Lakers so far, how this roster compares to the two championship teams he’s been on, how he feels about load management going into his 10th year and the difference between playing with LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard. (Editor’s Note: This interview was recorded on Monday).

Green also talked about the team’s new partnership with Delta — the Showtime Seat Exchange — which gives Lakers fans the chance to donate select game tickets, and in exchange, receive a Delta flight anywhere in the U.S. The next opportunity for fans to participate will come on Jan. 3 for tickets to the Lakers’ game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Jan. 31.

It’s a good conversation that we hope you enjoy.

Locked on Lakers

Anthony started his show by quickly analyzing the Lakers sweeping a back-to-back in Denver and then in Utah. Sure, neither of those teams have played up to expectations heading into the year, but this is a tough task almost regardless of the seasons they’re having.

It was also something to behold to watch Anthony Davis absolutely dominate Utah despite reigning Defensive Player of The Year Rudy Gobert’s presence on the court. It didn’t seem to matter who was in front of Davis, he just wasn’t having it. Oh, and that LeBron guy played pretty well, too.

After discussing a couple other notes regarding the game, Anthony threw to a conversation he recorded earlier in the day with Jorge Sedano of ESPN, in which they looked back on the season now that a quarter of it has already passed. Are the Lakers the team to beat? How do they match up with the Clippers? How much more fun is it talking about the Lakers while they’re good? All that and plenty more.
