All Mailbag Podcast!

Darius Soriano —  February 9, 2017

In the latest Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete and I answer questions sent in from listeners. Included are our thoughts on whether this new starting lineup would have produced more wins to this point if they’d been the starters all season, what we’d like to see the young players improve on after the all-star break, and whether Jordan Clarkson might still be better as a point guard.

I know during Sunday’s 49 point drubbing at the hands of the Mavericks, many Lakers’ fans threw out a bunch of four letter words. After the game, though, the one which might have been most uttered by fans wasn’t an expletive, but rather a reference to what the team’s strategy should be for the rest of the year: tank.

With the Lakers falling to last in the West and now in possession of the 3rd worst record in the league, the draft pick ramifications of the Lakers’ position is not lost on anyone who roots for the Lakers. So, with that, in the latest Laker Film Room Podcast, me and Pete discuss the direction of the team, what approach they should take in the 2nd half of the year, and, briefly, a couple of – gulp – prospects in the upcoming draft.

In the latest Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete and I discuss the Lakers’ 0-4 week, their loss to the Pistons, and differentiating between what parts of the young players’ games you can dismiss because they’re young and what parts of their games are real concerns irrespective of their youth.

That last point, I think, is a worthy discussion beyond the time Pete and I spent on it. As I wrote in the game preview, I think it’s fair to be both disappointed in some of the team’s recent play while still being understanding that this team is playing the long game and looking for long term improvement and upward trajectory. This is what rebuilding looks like.

In this week’s episode of the Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete and I discuss the Lakers recent winning ways and improved play over the last week or so. We especially look more closely young trio of D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, and Brandon Ingram, discussing the gains they’ve made on both ends of the floor and how they are impacting games.

In the 2nd half of the pod, Pete and I welcome former video coordinator for the Clippers and Spurs, @theJumpBallnet, and talk the life and role of an NBA video coordinator, how he watches games, and what advice he might give to someone trying to break into that field and find a career in the NBA.

The Lakers are 2-15 in their last 17 games. They’ve fallen off defensively and, while they have recaptured some of their explosiveness on offense, they still cannot seem to put together a full 48 minutes to hold onto games in their grasp. The players are frustrated, Luke Walton is frustrated, and fans are starting to get downright despondent.

In the latest Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete and I discuss what’s been going wrong, what our expectations are moving forward, and what changes the team should be looking to make heading into the 2nd half of the season. Click through below to listen.
