The return of the NBA is getting closer and closer, which means it won’t be long until we’re getting answers on many of the basketball questions still facing the Los Angeles Lakers, like how they’ll try to replace the minutes of Avery Bradley, and who might be in line for a bigger role as a result.

To kick off the latest episode of “The 30” — a podcast by Silver Screen and Roll — Jas Kang and co-host Anthony Irwin broke down the Lakers’ eight-game schedule for the restart in Orlando. The guys then discussed how important the remaining regular season games are to the Lakers, and what the team should be looking to work on and improve at before the playoffs begin.

Following that, Anthony and Jas got into the impact of Bradley’s decision not to join the team in Orlando. Can head coach Frank Vogel help mitigate Bradley’s absence using some of the players on the current roster? Is something like that even possible?

After talking about all of that, Anthony and Jas broke down why specifically Alex Caruso is a much better option for an increased role than Rajon Rondo is, and why Vogel needs to play the balding fan-favorite even more now that Bradley is going to pass on going to Disney World. And finally, to wrap things up, Anthony and Jas broke down the championship odds for the top contenders, including those of the purple and gold.

For all that and more, you can listen to the entire episode in the player embedded below. And if you want to make sure you never miss a single show, subscribe to the Silver Screen and Roll podcast feed on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or Google Podcasts.
