Lakers Podcast: D’Angelo Russell’s Future In Los Angeles, Plus-Assessing Luke Walton’s First Season
Lakers News: Luke Walton Praises “brilliant” Performance By D’angelo Russell
Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers season is starting to wind down, so we spend this episode of CourtCast discussing the up-and-down year that we’ve seen from D’Angelo Russell. Guest Jabari Davis joins host Trevor Lane to talk about Russell’s mental makeup and whether it is conducive to him living up to his potential as a basketball player.

Plus, we take a look at Luke Walton’s first season at the helm with the Lakers. Does he get a pass despite a losing season, or have some of his methods been a bit too similar to those employed by ex-head coach Byron Scott? We also discuss what the Lakers could do if they are blessed with a top-three pick in the upcoming draft, and Jabari makes a surprising choice for number three on his draft board.

We finish off the show with a fun game that has Jabari choosing between a Lakers player and one of his peers in the NBA. Do you agree with his choices? Check out the latest episode of CourtCast to find out:
