NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at Los Angeles Lakers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

On a balmy Tuesday night in Los Angeles, the Lakers received their championship rings in a classy, and touching manner.

The ceremony included videos from the club’s families and various frontline workers, as well as a speech from Jeanie Buss ensuring fans that the championship banner will only be revealed when they are able to be back in the arena.

When that will be? Your guess is as good as mine.

After their championship ring ceremony, the Lakers played their their season opener against the Clippers, which started off as poorly as it possibly could have. The Clippers were the aggressors coming out of the locker and got out to a 20-point lead in the first quarter.

The Lakers were able to quickly regroup and erase that huge deficit, but they were unable to get over the hump and come out with the win, in large part due to Paul George being a human flamethrower. Which brings us to today’s episode.

On this week’s edition of “Talk-O Tuesday,” our hosts Alex Padilla and Alex Regla recap the Lakers’ ring ceremony and their disappointing loss to the Clippers. They also discuss their impressions of the team’s new players, give their takeaways from Tuesday night’s game and make predictions for the upcoming games.
