In this episode of the Laker Film Room Podcast, me, Pete, and Mike discuss losing Anthony Davis through at least the All-Star break and what steps the Lakers can take to “replace” him (knowing it’s impossible to “replace” a player as great as him).
We use the win over the Timberwolves as a template for future success, taking a closer look at Marc Gasol’s role on offense, KCP rediscovering his shooting stroke, and Markieff Morris re-establishing himself as a key rotation player.
Then, later in the pod, we dive into Thursday’s game against the Nets and give our thoughts on how that game might play out, what approach LeBron will take to the game, and how part of the appeal of this matchup is strength vs. strength.
This was a really good discussion and I hope you enjoy it. You can listen to the full pod below.
