Podcast: Is it too early to put LeBron James and Anthony Davis among the best duos ever?

New, comments

Yes, they have to actually accomplish something for the Lakers, but this Anthony Davis and LeBron James is legitimately incredible, and could get better.

Today’s podcasts focus on Anthony Davis going absolutely berserk on what felt like the entire state of Minnesota, but mostly just Timberwolves big man Karl-Anthony Towns.

The 30

In this episode, Jas was joined by Silver Screen and Roll’s Alex Regla. They kicked things off by discussing the Lakers’ 142-125 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves and how Davis dominated them with a 50-point performance. Alex and Jas broke down when Davis is at his best offensively and how he can continue to put up the big numbers he has recently.

Following that, they got into the Davis/LeBron James pick-and-roll, and how the play has developed into being an unstoppable option for the Lakers.

Then, the guys talked about Kyle Kuzma’s struggles on the offensive end since returning from injury. Does he fit into the Lakers scheme, or does he have to change his mindset because he is playing for a championship contender rather than the young squads he has over his first two seasons?

To wrap things up, Alex and Jas shared their thoughts on who has been the most disappointing Laker this season.

Locked on Lakers

Today’s episode started with, well, just me marveling at the sheer dominance that Davis put on display last night. As I wrote that last sentence, Davis actually just scored on Towns again. Crazy, really.

From there, I opened up the mailbag to answer your questions and it appears that while everyone has had plenty of fun with this team, listeners are still pretty focused on ways the roster might be improved.
