Podcast: Rajon Rondo wants to come back; guessing LeBron James ‘Space Jam 2’ headlines

Here’s hoping Rajon Rondo is pulling a Brook Lopez and just said nice things about the Lakers to say the right things. Also we tried to guess what headlines we might get out of Lakers star LeBron James having scrimmages on the set of “Space Jam 2.”

LeBron James might be shut down for the year, but that won’t stop us from having a little fun. Today’s podcasts discuss him building a court for pickup games while he shoots Space Jam 2, Rajon Rondo saying he wants back next year and more mailbag questions.

The Lake Show

On this week’s episode, Harrison catches me up on what I might’ve missed while I was, um, unavailable over the weekend. We start by discussing LeBron’s first year as a Laker now that it’s basically behind us. All-in-all, quite a bit about how we think about the Lakers and James have changed, and not necessarily for the better.

Harrison then drops what I was hoping might be an April Fools’ joke about Rondo saying he wants back over the weekend. I didn’t react all that well.

To wrap up the show, we have a little fun with Space Jam 2 stories that could come out over the summer, a Byron chapter and plenty more.

Locked on Lakers

As promised, I dove back into the mailbag to get to any questions I might’ve missed on Monday’s episode. As per usual, a lot of people are interested in how we think this offseason is going to go, and for good reason. A lot is riding on the Lakers finding a player to help LeBron carry the burden next year, just in case his injury issues aren’t mere outliers moving forward.

Other topics covered: If I could jump ship and be a fan of another team, what team that might be, whether or not I believe the young core will bounce back next season from three-point range, and more.
