Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

This episode of CourtCast features host Trevor Lane and guest Mark Medina of the Southern California News Group talking about D’Angelo Russell, the development of Brandon Ingram and Ivica Zubac, and Mark tells a story about the time Metta World Peace tried to tackle him.

There have been question marks surrounding second-year guard Russell and whether or not he can be the player and leader that the Lakers need him to be. We dig deep on the topic and come up with some candid answers that may not bode well for Russell. Additionally, we discuss the work ethic being shown by Ingram and Zubac and get into why the Lakers are so high on him.

Plus, Magic Johnson has been off to a successful start as the new President of Basketball Operations for the Lakers, can he keep it up when the summer free agency period rolls around? All that and much more on this episode of CourtCast:
