    Lakers Nation Podcast Episode 13: Brian Geltzeiler

    in Basketball

    LakersNation.com's Jabari Davis caught up with the host of NBA Radio (Sirius XM) and founder of HoopsCritic.com, Brian Geltzeiler for today's episode. We simply had to talk to Geltzeiler (@HoopsCritic) following his "tweet heard 'round the world" about the organization's willingness to at least field offers for rookie D'Angelo Russell.


    The duo also discussed the overall outlook of the young core as we move forward, how effective Coach Scott's methods have been with the younger players and whether Geltzeiler believes the team would consider making a move on the trade market if it meant shipping one or more of their developing assets out of town in order to make the current roster more enticing to potential upcoming free agents.

    Lakers Nation Podcast Episode 14: Trade Talk

    in Basketball

    LakersNation.com's Jabari Davis was joined by Jamieson Welsh (Fox Sports Radio) and Jordan Buscarini (Castle Country Radio) once again for this episode. With all the rumors of potential free agents on the horizon and trade rumors swirling, the trio addressed all sides of the discussion. They also reassessed Jordan Clarkson's value with a bit of clarification of what his next contract might actually look like.


    They were also pleased to be joined by the site's Trevor Lane for his opinions on all the recent news and rumors. Lane has an upcoming potential trades piece that should be up on the site this week, so we wanted to get a quick preview of some of his trade ideas.


    The Twitter Topic of the Week was provided by a loyal and appreciated listener that wanted to focus on the idea of moving some of the veteran players. As always, your feedback and topics are very much appreciated. Remember to send them along with #LNPodcast to @JabariDavisNBA, @TheeJamieson and @Jordan_DTS.

    THE 1984-85 SEASON: REVENGE OF THE LAKERS, PART ONE

    in Sports

    The 1984-85 season began with Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles Lakers looking up at Larry Bird, MVP of the World Champion Boston Celtics; Bird had dominated the 1984 NBA Finals and willed the Celtics to a comeback victory in 7 games (Boston’s 8th consecutive win over the Lakers in a Championship series), while Magic bore the brunt of his “tragic” performance.  Johnson and Coach Pat Riley used the overwhelming negative criticism of Johnson and the Lakers as fuel which propelled Los Angeles back to Boston Garden for a Bird-Magic rematch in the 1985 Finals, but the oldest player on the court would ultimately shine brightest. 35 year old Kareem Abdul-Jabbar would turn back the clock and lead the Lakers back from a demoralizing 34 point loss in game one to the NBA Title in six games, the Lakers becoming the first team to eliminate Boston in a Championship series on their home floor. Abdul-Jabbar’s brilliant performance was rewarded with his second Finals MVP award, a remarkable 14 seasons after his first with the 1971 World Champion Milwaukee Bucks. Steve relieves the 1984-85 regular season and Games 1-4 of a Classic NBA Finals Rematch.

    Lakers Nation Podcast Episode 11: D'Angelo Rising

    in Basketball

    LakersNation.com's Jabari Davis was joined by Jamieson Welsh (Fox Sports Radio) and Jordan Buscarini (Castle Country Radio) once again for this week's episode. The three of them discussed Kobe Bryant's condition and where the bulk of his remaining minutes should be devoted, as well as D'Angelo Russell's continued improvement both by the eye-ball test and the numbers and whether he should be the permanent starter at this point.


    Corey Hansford also joined the show in order to give a mid-season assessment and chime in on this week's LakersNation.com Roundtable Discussion: which of the young core players has shown the greatest potential to be a superstar at this level?


    Davis also asked each of them to put on their proverbial GM hats and decide which direction would be the best way to go with the future of the small forward position with rumors of potential interest in upcoming free agents like DeMar DeRozan, Hassan Whiteside and Harrison Barnes (amongst others) from the organization.

    Lakers Nation Podcast: Episode 7

    in Basketball

    LakersNation.com's Jabari Davis was joined by Jamieson Welsh (Fox Sports Radio) and Jordan Buscarini (Castle Country Radio) for the seventh installment of your Lakers Nation Podcast. The trio discussed Magic Johnson's recent comments about the front office and Jim Buss in particular. Davis asks if Johnson's criticism, while somewhat accurate, comes across as a bit of revisionist history given the fact that the former Laker-great publicly endorsed several of the moves he seems to be critical of at this point. 


    Davis also asked the panel to discuss some of the positive developments they've seen from the young core, while also addressing the current rotation, player frustration and whether the team may consider moving anyone if a more compatible or promising player were to become available on the market.


    Rather than their customary 'Final Shots' to close the show, the three of them took a moment to acknowledge some of Kobe Bryant's greatest moments since the 20-year-veteran officially announced his retirement last week.
