In the latest Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete and I discuss the Brook Lopez injury from every angle. We get into Lopez’s level of play this year, how that differs from what our preconceived notion of what he would be, and how the team has used him to this point in the year.
We then transition into how the team will manage with Lopez being out, their depth at the PF/C spots, what we think the best options are for replacing his minutes, and what we think Luke Walton will actually do.
Finally, we get into Lonzo Ball’s play over the last 5-10 games, what improvements we’ve seen, how those improvements relate back to our big picture/long view of him as a prospect, and how all of this ties into the narrative around his early season play.
This was a good discussion and we hope you like it.
