Lakers Podcast: Breaking Down Both Sides Of The Lakers V. Suns Tank Race
Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

On this episode of CourtCast by Lakers Nation, host Trevor Lane and guest Gerald Borguet, Phoenix Suns reporter for Hoops Habit, break down the epic tank race currently occurring between the Lakers and the Suns. Both teams are hoping for some luck in the draft lottery, but for L.A. the stakes are much higher because both their 2017 and 2019 first round picks are at risk.

We dig into the methods of both teams and find a number of similarities as well as a few differences. Would the Suns have more wins if Eric Bledsoe was still playing? And did the Lakers hurt their tank by shutting down Mozgov and Deng? Plus, how do Suns fans feel about the methods being used by their team to increase their draft lottery odds?

All that and much more on this packed episode:
