    Anthony Davis, LeBron James show their trust in Lakers organization

    Anthony Davis, LeBron James show their trust in Lakers organization

    Pete and I discuss Anthony Davis signing a deal that could keep him in L.A. for the next half a decade. For those keeping track at home, the Lakers might employ Davis and LeBron James for at least the next three years. We discuss what went into their decisions, what it means in the immediate future and what it says about the Lakers under Rob Pelinka. Oh and we discussed things that make us anxious because I learned something about Jen.

    Does this Lakers roster help LeBron James or Anthony Davis more?

    Does this Lakers roster help LeBron James or Anthony Davis more?

    Pete and I start by reacting to the disrespect (ok fine it wasn't that disrespectful) ESPN dealt the Lakers in their preseason predictions. We let that roll right into the "We Believe" slogan and why we love it so much. From there, we dive back into this roster by asking which star it most benefits. We wrap things up by discussing how this team might benefit from the transition players it has on the roster.

    Dennis Schröder wants to start; LeBron hints at Harrell's role

    Dennis Schröder wants to start; LeBron hints at Harrell's role

    With training camp somehow already getting underway, Pete and I reacted to Dennis Schröder's borderline demands to be a starter. We discuss what to take of him making such a request on a team that is coming off a championship, how everyone might handle it and more. From there, we broaden the conversation to include the potential rotation in its entirety, with a special interest in how Montrezl Harrell might fit. We wrap up with a couple rants about basketball color commentary compared to that of football.

    What kind of impact will Lakers roster upgrades have on Kyle Kuzma?

    With my system still completely packed with Thanksgiving activities, I opened the iTunes (and Twitter) mailbags to answer your guys' questions about what this roster might be capable of and what other work is still left to be done.

    What the Lakers seem to get that the Celtics don't

    What the Lakers seem to get that the Celtics don't

    Seeing as it's the season of thanks, Pete and I discussed what we're thankful for. It's you, just a heads up. From there, we enjoyed a little tidbit from Bill Simmons on what might be holding the Celtics back and how this exact factor might be something the Lakers excel at. We wrap up the show with a few questions from the mailbag because this crazy offseason has thrown off the schedule a bit. Have a great Thanksgiving weekend!

Mailbag question

Greetings Pete and Anthony,

I appreciate the show as it is a great escape from reality.

Mailbag question:

I believe we are 25% of the way there, as the Lakers should win the first modern day four-peat, 2020-2023. LeBron is transitioning to LeBron Magic Johnson, which will extend his dominant years. Do you agree that LeBron is the GOAT? I dismiss the talk of M Jordan being the greatest because of his finals record. I don’t believe that because unless MJ announced at the beginning of each season that he didn’t win a title, that he was not expecting to win that year, then he really had a title as his objective. If so, then anything less than a title was a failed attempt to win. So his record was 6 W, 9 L. Also, it is far more impressive to make it to the finals than to lose earlier in the playoffs or not make the playoffs. If we give 10 points for a finals win, 5 points for a finals loss, and 2 points for making the playoffs but not making it to the finals, we get: Jordan (

60 + 14 = 74), James (40 + 30 + 18 = 88).

Also, this is not a singles game like tennis. It really matters who else is on your team. So the number of rings is not a good measure.

Thanks,

G

Good Laker Pod

Hey Anthony, love the show, especially when Pete and/or Harrison is on. After listening to your case for retiring Dwight’s jersey, I have a question:

Does that mean the Lakers should retire Rondo’s number as well? He was a Laker longer than Dwight was, and objectively played a bigger role in the finals. He should be a Hall of Famer when he retires, so he seems to fit your criteria. Would love to see Anthony’s favorite player immortalized for eternity in the rafters @ Staples. #9 forever!

Give Pete a big sloppy kiss for me, cheers!

Two Questions:

1. Anthony, when do you plan to incorporate "NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers" into your intro for the show?

2. I have been playing a lot of NBA 2k MYTeam recently, and was wondering how close the offensive plays and sets in video games mirror that of real life.

Finally, i just wanted to thank you for your daily podcasts. and for covering the NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers.
