In the latest episode of “The 30,” a podcast by Silver Screen and Roll, co-hosts Anthony Irwin and Jas Kang kicked things off by discussing Dwight Howard’s recent comments on Instagram about not believing in vaccines — yes, he actually said this — among other regrettable remarks. The guys shared their thoughts on what Howard said, and why they both feel it’s important to be critical of his statement, and not just chalk it up to everyone having a right to their opinion.

Following that, Anthony and Jas debated which of the the Lakers two newest additions will have the biggest impact on the team down the stretch: Will it be Dion Waiters, or J.R. Smith? Which one will get more minutes in the rotation, and how will head coach Frank Vogel handle his lineups without Avery Bradley and Rajon Rondo? All of these are important questions, especially as the purple and gold get closer to the playoffs.

Finally, to wrap things up, the guys got into how players will handle not being able to have sex in the bubble — yes, this has been an actual topic, making it as far as Danny Green’s most recent podcast — and whether or not any NBA player in Orlando will break the rules for that, or any other reason.
