There is probably no clearer evidence that basketball is close to returning than the resurgence of debates about coaching decisions, and that is exactly what Lakers’ fans have found themselves doing the past few weeks with the news that Avery Bradley will not be a part of the team’s postseason, and especially since the news that Rajon Rondo is expected to miss extended time.

Fortunately for the fanbase, Frank Vogel has seemingly hurdled past every obstacle thrown his way during what has been arguably his best coaching season to date. With the challenges that already come with playing within “the bubble,” Vogel will now have to once again prove he’s up for the job when it comes to shuffling his rotation, which brings us to today’s episode.

On this week’s edition of Talk-O-Tuesday, our hosts Alex Padilla and Alex Regla discuss several of the questions Vogel must look to answer leading up to the Lakers’ playoff run, including Bradley and Rondo’s absence, and other replacements the Lakers might have to make.

Also on the show, Alex and Alex discussed the best moments from inside the bubble so far. Featuring J.R. Smith’s video saga, as well as Dwight Howard swaying lonesomely at a DJ set he was the sole participant in.
