LakersNation.com’s Jabari Davis was joined by Jamieson Welsh (Fox Sports Radio) and Jordan Buscarini (Castle Country Radio) for the first episode of your Lakers Nation Podcast for the 2015-16 regular season. The three of them reassessed what might be realistic expectations for this team as the franchise continues to transition from what has been a remarkable run throughout a majority of the “Kobe Bryant Era” to establishing a new foundation centered around a promising core of young players led by Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson and D’Angelo Russell.
The trio also addressed this week’s ‘LakersNation.com Roundtable Question — generated each week by the site’s Corey Hansford — and discussed whether it was a mistake by the front office to cut center Robert Upshaw. The ‘Twitter Conversation of the Week’ centered around whether Jordan Clarkson’s continued emergence could potentially delay D’Angelo Russell’s development as a playmaker and eventual leader at this level?
We hope you enjoy each episode and encourage your feedback and future Laker/NBA-related questions via Twitter with #LNPodcast attached.
