In the latest episode of “The 30,” a Lakers podcast by Silver Screen and Roll, co-hosts Anthony Irwin and Jas Kang kicked things off by discussing what the NBA will look like if the league decides to finish the (currently halted) 2019-20 season, something it appears the league is getting closer and closer to doing. Then, the guys got into how the Lakers look set to have an advantage over other teams if the league returns from the coronavrius hiatus, and why they think that is.

Then, following the break, Anthony and Jas got into last night’s finale of ESPN’s 10-part Chicago Bulls/Michael Jordan documentary, “The Last Dance,” and share their opinions on what made the series so enjoyable for all of us over the last several weeks. They also discussed what they learned about Michael Jordan’s greatness through viewing the project, and debate how he would have done in today’s NBA while dealing with all of the complications that come with the current era of basketball (from social media to a whole lot more).

Finally, to wrap things up, the guys gave their takeaways from the documentary, and how they think the Chicago Bulls would have done if they ran it back during the 1998-99 lockout shortened season.
