Podcast: Biggest surprises, achievements, disappointments and more halfway through the season

The Lakers are 41 games into the 2019-20 campaign, which means the regular season is halfway over. Let’s look back on what we’ve learned so far.

The Silver Screen and Roll Podcast is back, baby! Or, at least the post putting it on the site is, because while we’ve still been podding the last several weeks, we haven’t had posts on the site announcing it. That changes today, and just in time for a chat about where the Lakers stand, now exactly halfway through the season.

Our own Alex Regla did a written column on his own takeaways about this team at the halfway mark that is worth a read, and Sabreena Merchant decided to have me on “I Love Basketball” — her show, dropping every Thursday on the Silver Screen and Roll podcast feed — to discuss our biggest takeaways now that the Lakers are heading into the back half of the year.

We started out by debating which win we thought was the Lakers’ biggest, as well as what was their lowest moment. Then we discussed what we’ve seen as the most pleasant surprises of the season — at which point I had a rant about the disingenuous, bad-faith backlash Alex Caruso generates — which was followed by a conversation about our predictions for the team over the rest of the season.

Finally, we wrapped up by talking about what predictions we were most wrong about heading into the year.
