The shorthanded Lakers lost against the New York Knicks on Monday night, and after the game, hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin jumped on the latest episode of “Lakers, Explained” — a podcast by Silver Screen and Roll — to give their quick reactions to how the evening went, aka fight to the death about the value of Andre Drummond and Marc Gasol.
But after briefly discussing the game, the guys threw to a more interesting conversation they recorded earlier in the day with South Bay Lakers head coach and former Laker Coby Karl, who is hosting a new podcast called “The Curious Leader with Coby Karl,” featuring guests like legendary Lakers coach Phil Jackson, team governor Jeanie Buss, current player Jared Dudley, and a whole lot more. So after Harrison and Anthony gave Coby a hard time about encroaching on their podcasting turf, they then jumped into some more serious topics.
What is it like to manage all the different factors that go into coaching a G League team while building his own coaching philosophy? What makes connecting with players on a personal level so important to him? What have the Lakers had him and his coaching staff doing after choosing not to send a team to the G League bubble? What are his favorite stories about Alex Caruso and Talen Horton-Tucker? Does he remember the time that Harrison and Anthony did an interview with him and it didn’t record? What was it like to teepee Ray Allen’s house? They touched on all those topics and a whole lot more on our latest podcast.
