In this episode of the Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete, Cranjis, and I offer up our season preview for the 2017-18 Lakers. We touch on every single player on the roster, offering up thoughts on what would make a successful season for each, look at key stats from the preseason, and get into the general strengths and weaknesses of each guy.
Our key focus is the major rotation players, with prominent discussions about Lonzo Ball (and why our early season expectations are a bit measured), Brandon Ingram (and what we can take away from his solid play towards the end of the preseason), the starting PF battle between Larry Nance and Julius Randle, Brook Lopez’s impact, and reiterating that Kyle Kuzma is legit.
Lastly, we get into Luke Walton and whether, a little over a year into his coaching tenure with the team, if our perception of him has shifted, whether we’ve seen growth in his coaching, and what we’d like to see from him in year two.
We covered a lot of ground in this one, so we hope you enjoy it. Click through to listen to the entire episode.
