On the latest episode of CourtCast, the official LN podcast, host Trevor Lane is joined by Coach Nick of bballbreakdown.com. March Madness is in full swing so we debate who the Lakers should select if they are blessed with a top-three pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Lonzo Ball of UCLA has captured the heart of Southern California and has Lakers fans buzzing about the possibility of keeping him in LA, but does Washington’s Markelle Fultz have a better shot at becoming a superstar? What problems do they have that could hold them back? Kansas’ Josh Jackson is another player that would have to be considered with the first overall pick, but is he on the same level as Fultz or Ball?

Plus, we discuss players to target with Houston’s first round pick that was acquired in the Lou Williams trade and Coach Nick tells the story of the time he tried to guard the legendary Jerry West one-on-one. All that and more in the latest episode of CourtCast:
