The #1 source for all things Lakers

I’ve been a faithful listener for three years, and a Laker fan since seeing Magic and Kareem battled Dr. J and the Sixers for the 1980 Chip. These days I’m living in Colorado, so LFR is my life-line to stay connected to the purple and gold.

Clear breakdowns of strategy, line ups and roster construction, insightful recaps of each game, fun banter between, Pete, Mike and Darius— LFR has all the ingredients for a winning pod. So every day I look forward to listening, learning and laughing along with the LFR guys.

Thoughtful and educational

Most sports commentary is shallow and annoying. These guys are the opposite. Thoughtful, insightful, and empathetic.

AUDIO ISSUE: Darius’ microphone goes in and Out

Great podcast. Darius’ microphone keeps going in and out. It is pretty annoying actually. Please fix the issue. Seems like there’s a connection issue or he’s covering his microphone when he is talking. It’s been happening for dozens of podcasts.
