The Los Angeles Lakers have played their first two exhibition games in the bubble, and so far there have been a couple of standouts for the team. On the latest episode of “The 30” — a podcast by Silver Screen and Roll — Jas Kang was joined by our own Harrison Faigen to discuss them.
After starting off by getting into the biggest story of the weekend — the latest drama surrounding LA Clippers guard Lou Williams — and discussing the weird viewing experience that the bubble has led to, Harrison and Jas revealed who has impressed them most during the scrimmages so far, and what they expect to see on Monday against the Washington Wizards and moving forward.
We all know Dion Waiters has been a standout for L.A., but he’s not the only player to offer some hope for what they can bring to the team in Orlando. The two also got into a few of the players who have underwhelmed them so far, a debate that got a little heated.
Later on, Harrison and Jas theorized about what kind of rotation it looks like the Lakers are going to use, and why Frank Vogel might be throwing out some lineups that don’t appear to work right now. Finally, they wrapped things up by having Harrison yell about how dumb he thinks the everlasting “asterisk” discussion is, as well as how he and Jas think the Lakers will approach their upcoming seeding round games (starting on Thursday against the Clippers).
