Early LeBron in L.A. Symposium, Kawhi in Toronto, The Wizards Are Not Dead Yet
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin by talking about the scoring boom across the NBA through the first week of regular season action, and then, after ignoring them last week, they shift to the Lakers (4:00) after three losses to open the year. Topics include: The thrill of a Patty Mills game-winner, whether preaching patience is the easiest possible take, Lonzo vs. Rondo in the starting lineup, Luke Walton's rotations, LeBron's engagement, and how crazy this season has already been. From there: the state of L.A. Live's billboard industry (30:00), Sharp's big picture theory on the next few years in Los Angeles, and takeaways from the Rockets-Lakers fight. Then (50:00): Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors after four very impressive wins, not overreacting to the Jazz, the Nuggets looking great, acknowledging the Kings and apologizing to Caris LeVert. At the end (1:15:00): The Stauskas renaissance in Portland, a Wizards epiphany during Monday's OT win, and cloning NBA players to beat the Warriors.
