The Los Angeles Lakers may be looking at standings for all of the wrong reasons right now, but keeping their top-three protected pick would be a major win for the franchise. Lakers Nation’s Trevor Lane and Ryan Ward discuss the status of the tank on the latest episode of CourtCast, the Lakers Nation podcast.
We also break down each of the young players on the team’s roster. Who has the potential to become a star in the future? Plus, what has Ryan seen behind-the-scenes that has him worried about the long-term potential of players like D’Angelo Russell and Julius Randle? What did Trevor notice was so different in the Celtics locker room compared to the Lakers?
Plus, how on earth did Ryan wind up stuck in an elevator with Jeanie Buss and Phil Jackson??? Check out the latest episode of CourtCast to find out:
