The 2021-22 season has been, to put it mildly, off to a rocky start for the Lakers. They went 0-fer the entire preseason, then dropped the opening pair of regular season games, the second a loss to the Phoenix Suns, featuring a variety of meltdowns over officiating and a timeout brouhaha between Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard. Frankly, the team really needed a win, and finally got one against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday, 121-118. It wasn't always pretty or textbook. Budding superstar guard Ja Morant (40 points, 10 assists) carved up the Lakers' defense. The ball still gets turned over way too often. Russell Westbrook remains very inefficient from the floor. And so on and so forth. However, there were also plenty of positives. Carmelo Anthony led the Lakers with 28 points off the bench, fueling a win that saw him pass Moses Malone to become number nine on the NBA's all-time scoring list. Anthony Davis played exceptional defense inside and along the perimeter. Russell Westbrook (who notched 13 assists, albeit against nine turnovers) and LeBron James displayed some periodic flash working in tandem. And the team looked on balance its best over three games, by a significant margin. To be certain, a lot of work remains ahead of the Lakers. Like... a LOT. But everyone knew going into this season that even a successful campaign would be spent as a work in progress. That's just the deal for this particular roster. Thus, it's important to play well and improve, but sometimes you also gotta just take the W and gratefully keep it moving. And on Sunday, the Lakers ultimately did both. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT ONE: Reaction to the win, and what stood out most to the Kamenetzkys. SEGMENT TWO: What's starting to work for Westbrook, and what's still eluding him. SEGMENT THREE: Thoughts on Melo's historic night, and how enjoyable his presence on the Lakers has been. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

That the Lakers are and will remain for a while a work in progress is a well-developed story at this point. (Hardly uninteresting, but definitely not unspoken.) What makes things interesting is the scope of that work. One of the major issues facing Frank Vogel, his triumvirate of stars and a brand new supporting cast - balance. So many potential tradeoffs when it comes to potential lineups, or tactics to maneuver through a long regular season. Among them: How can the Lakers leverage their size (not just among centers, but certainly including them) while also playing a modern game, offensively? How much defense can be sacrificed in the name of generating more points? What's the right balance when it comes to Russell Westbrook and his traditional style of play? These questions and more run throughout the episode, all enhanced by the presence of The Ringer's Seerat Sohi, one of the most unique basketball voices out there today. It's a full on engagement in the pros and cons of Westbrook, the skepticism some have about how ultimately he (and the Lakers by extension) might fare when the playoffs roll around, and the process of being in love with the process, and why it matters that Lakers veterans LOVE them some process. Plus, a deep dive into the Ben Simmons saga in Philly, and we break down some of Seerat's work writing about HBO's Succession for The Ringer. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky, with Guest Seerat Sohi (The Ringer) SEGMENT 1: Was Seerat on board with the Westbrook deal when it happened? How fixable are the potential shortcomings he brings personally? Conversely, how high does the ceiling get for the team if it works? SEGMENT 2: What's the right balance for the Lakers, when it comes to size? Can/should Frank Vogel sacrifice defense in the name of offense? How good is Vogel at doing that? SEGMENT 3: How the hell did the Ben Simmons thing break down so fast? How did so many smart people seem to make poor choices? Or was this inevitable? PLUS.... Some bonus talk!

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a deep dive into reports that a Deshaun Watson trade to the Miami Dolphins could be imminent. The timing of this whole thing almost feels like the Texans are sending up a weather balloon to the NFL to try and see if a suspension is on the horizon. If so, that could seriously derail any trade talks. Assuming Watson does get deal to Miami, though, what does that mean for Tua Tagovailoa? Whether you think he has the potential to be a franchise-caliber quarterback or not, you have to admit he hasn't exactly been given a fair shake to prove himself the last two seasons. Later, Jason explains why the Los Angeles Lakers have to be feeling just a little bit of regret about deciding to trade for Russell Westbrook rather than Buddy Hield. Can you imagine what the Lakers offense could look like with the sharpshooting Hield flanking LeBron James and Anthony Davis? Scary. Speaking of scary, have you heard Jason explain why the annual Michigan vs. Michigan State football game has always sent chills up his spine? Let us be the first to say: Thank God for AAA.

The Lakers disappointed in their opening night loss to the Golden State Warriors, but for some fans another disappointment came with a starting lineup that included DeAndre Jordan starting at center, as opposed to one featuring Anthony Davis at the five. It wasn't exactly a surprise, given the team's current injury woes that have thinned out the rotation and will limit coach Frank Vogel's options, but is it the start of a trend that might last the season? And if Jordan starts, does it matter that much assuming Davis plays the bulk of his minutes as a center? On Tuesday, it was over 50% of his floor time. Is that enough? Should we expect that percentage to grow over time, when Vogel has more choices at his disposal? What's the right figure? Meanwhile, the Lakers gave unexpected floor time to Avery Bradley, mostly because the team's defense was so porous along the perimeter. The CW when the Lakers signed Bradley was that his presence is likely temporary, holding down the fort until reinforcements heal up. Is the CW a little shaky? And what about Westbrook? What might get him feeling more comfortable with LeBron James and Davis going forward? A listener reacting to Tuesday's loss had an interesting proposal about Westbrook's fourth quarter playing time. Is he on the right track? Finally, the Lakers play two of the more intriguing Western Conference teams this weekend in Phoenix (Friday) and Memphis (Sunday). What makes these teams so interesting? How good could they be? HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! SweatBlock Get it today for 20% off at SweatBlock.com with promo code LockedOn, or at Amazon and CVS.

Here we go! The Lakers finally played a game that counts. So how did the new LeBron James/Anthony Davis/Russell Westbrook era kick off? Not so hot. On the surface, a 121-114 loss to the Warriors doesn't seem *that* terrible, but once you break down the particulars, there was a lot to be concerned about. There was the defense, which fell apart badly over the second half. There were turnovers. There was sub-50 percent shooting from the free throw line. And there was Westbrook, whose Laker debut was pretty disastrous all around. (The potential reasons for this inauspiciousness are both fascinating and, frankly, human.) To be clear, there were also some bright spots. Kent Bazemore played great defense against Steph Curry. The offense was at times quite overwhelming. And LeBron and AD looked like... well... LeBron and AD. But in all, this start marked exactly what this veteran team has promised it would be: A work very much in progress. Hosts: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: What went wrong during the loss... most notably, the defense. SEGMENT 2: What was more promising. Kent Bazemore's defense, and the performances from LeBron and AD. SEGMENT 3: Westbrook. What the hell happened? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Laker Film Room - Dedicated to the Study of Lakers Basketball

The Lakers dropped their season opener to the Warriors 121-114 in a game that saw LeBron and Anthony Davis score and defend well, but none of their teammates really have a positive night on either side of the ball. Pete and Darius breakdown the game, focusing on LeBron and AD's strong nights, how the big starting lineup fared, some of the team's defensive struggles, and how injuries forced some really ill-fitting lineups onto the floor. Later, the guys discuss Russell Westbrook's rough night and how a convergence of his own limitations and the groupings he played with contributed to his struggles.
