LakersCast: Is Ben Simmons Next Up in Lakerland?

 

Could Ben Simmons be the next answer to the Lakers’ point guard problem?

JC & Ethan return to catch you up on all things in Lakerland from Alex Caruso’s arrest to Jason Kidd’s departure to the Ben Simmons chatter that has already begun.

Dennis Schroder looks like a 50-50 bet to return, Kyle Kuzma may have already moved on in his mind, but no matter how the Lakers turn their wheels, there is no question there are three clear areas for improvement on the roster.

The fellas also dive into the general playoff picture to revisit the Trae Young for Luka Doncic mega deal, give final NBA predictions, and muse about the happenings around the league as the Lakers look to restart a “normal” offseason—at least when it comes to the calendar.

LakersCast: The Lakers Season is Over

 

Mercifully, it’s over. The season that never quit has come to its conclusion, and the Lakers can finally rest with plenty to reflect upon as they exit in Round 1 of the playoffs. Another failure to appear plagued the Lakers from the start, Anthony Davis couldn’t move in his five-minute return, and LeBron’s attempted heroics weren’t enough for him to save himself or his ship from sinking at the inception of its journey. Ethan and JC reflect on the loss, take a brief look into where the Lakers can go from here and provide some general takeaways from the campaign that presented more questions than answers.

LakersCast: An Absolute Disaster

 

As they enter a win-or-stay-home Game 6, the Lakers season is officially on the brink. Following an embarrassing Game 5 in which the Lakers flatly did not show up to play, Ethan goes harder in the paint than Andre Drummond on his best day to absolutely rip into the collective Lakers’ soul. The Lakers are going to have to dig deep in their bag to have a chance at extending the series, and if Anthony Davis can’t go, it may not matter what else everyone else–including LeBron–can give. Disclaimer: this episode is hotter than a bag of Hot Cheetos.

LakersCast: LeBron Delivers the Lakers from Purgatory

 

It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t pretty, but the Lakers are officially in the playoffs. It took an unbelievable second half supported by a miracle shot from LeBron James, but the Lakers now move forward to take on the Phoenix Suns in Round 1.

Ethan is back with a post-Play-in-victory show in which he dissects the Lakers’ new lineups, who should be playing from here, how the Lakers have to move forward, and eventually compares the play-in results to the Presidential Election.

The Lakers enter a different kind of playoff picture as this year’s seventh seed, and it’s just yet another hurdle this year’s group will have to overcome to achieve a Herculean task.

It was definitely not an ordinary day in Lakerland.

Dennis Schroder is lost for the regular season, we’ve learned that LeBron (ankle) is not a Cyborg, the Lakers won a critical game against a quality opponent on an unbelievable, potentially season-defining block from Anthony Davis, and we were all witnesses to the most special moment of them all: The Marc Gasol Revenge Game!
