    Is Ben Simmons Next Up in Lakerland?

    Is Ben Simmons Next Up in Lakerland?

    Could Ben Simmons be the next answer to the Lakers' point guard problem?

    *JC & Ethan* return to catch you up on all things in Lakerland from Alex Caruso's arrest to Jason Kidd's departure to the Ben Simmons chatter that has already begun.

    Dennis Schroder looks like a 50-50 bet to return, Kyle Kuzma may have already moved on in his mind, but no matter how the Lakers turn their wheels, there is no question there are three clear areas for improvement on the roster.

    The fellas also dive into the general playoff picture to revisit the Trae Young for Luka Doncic mega deal, give final NBA predictions, and muse about the happenings around the league as the Lakers look to restart a "normal" offseason—at least when it comes to the calendar.

    That's a Wrap on an Injured Year

    That's a Wrap on an Injured Year

    Mercifully, it's over. The season that never quit has come to its conclusion, and the Lakers can finally rest with plenty to reflect upon as they exit in Round 1 of the playoffs. Another failure to appear plagued the Lakers from the start, Anthony Davis couldn't move in his five-minute return, and LeBron's attempted heroics weren't enough for him to save himself or his ship from sinking at the inception of its journey. *Ethan and JC* reflect on the loss, take a brief look into where the Lakers can go from here and provide some general takeaways from the campaign that presented more questions than answers.

    An Absolute Disaster

    An Absolute Disaster

    As they enter a win-or-stay-home Game 6, the Lakers season is officially on the brink. Following an embarrassing Game 5 in which the Lakers flatly did not show up to play, *Ethan* goes harder in the paint than Andre Drummond on his best day to absolutely rip into the collective Lakers' soul. The Lakers are going to have to dig deep in their bag to have a chance at extending the series, and if Anthony Davis can't go, it may not matter what else everyone else--including LeBron--can give. Disclaimer: this episode is hotter than a bag of Hot Cheetos.

    AD Wakes Up, Lakers Tie Series at One

    The Lakers have reset their playoff odometer. Again. Anthony Davis was dominant, Dennis Schroder stepped up, and LeBron James delivered heroics down the stretch to tie their first-round series at one. *Ethan and JC* break down all of the action, dissect the return of Marc Gasol, discuss Kyle Kuzma's ever-evolving role, and what rotations the Lakers should move with from here as Game 3 is less than 48 hours away. The fellas also hit on Andre Drummond, Montrezl Harrell, THT, and more in this action-packed Game 2 recap/Game 3 lookahead.
