Lakers Podcast: Buss Drama, Tanking, Lonzo Ball vs. Markelle Fultz With Alex Kennedy
Lonzo Ball’s Father, Lavar, Explains Why He Should Be Top Pick In 2017 Nba Draft
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

CourtCast by LakersNation features host Trevor Lane and guest Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype.com discussing the Buss family drama and whether or not the attempted coup by Jim and Johnny will have an impact on Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka’s ability to woo free agents this summer. We also discuss Pelinka’s connections as a former agent and how they will allow him to be successful as a GM.

With March Madness beginning, we also discuss the debate over the top two picks. If the Lakers have the option, should they take Markelle Fultz or Lonzo Ball? Which one has the best chance of becoming a superstar?

To close out the show, we take a look at Nick Young’s prospects as a free agent this summer, and Alex tells the story of when an NBA All-Star took him under his wing and showed him how to get a good story. All that and more on an absolutely packed episode of CourtCast:
