In the latest episode of “The 30,” a podcast by Silver Screen and Roll, host Jas Kang is joined by a very special guest: Los Angeles Lakers forward (and third-place G League Rookie of the Year finisher) Devontae Cacok.
To kick things off, Devontae and Jas discuss the impacts of the Black Live Matter movement and pandemic, and how both will affect the NBA’s attempts to resume the season at Disney World in Orlando. Following that, Devontae gets into his thoughts on the drawbacks of being in the bubble for an extended period of time, and the challenges facing players around the league if the league resumes play.
After the break, Devontae reflects back on his journey from undrafted player to the NBA, and what it felt like to put on the Lakers uniform for the first time. Then, Devontae explains what it is like being a teammate of LeBron James, and shares a funny story about when he first met The King.
Finally, to wrap things up, Devontae gets into what the Lakers have to do to a win a championship, and why he feels that whichever teams win the title this year should get extra credit for getting the championship under the current circumstances, rather than having an asterisk next to their name.
