Last night, the Lakers lost to the Portland Trailblazers,124-112, bringing them one loss closer to 50. As sad as last night may seem, the (25-49) Lakers did find a magical concept: entertainingly losing.
- How did the Lakers entertainingly lose?
- What should Laker fans be hoping for the rest of the season?
- How the hell is there a ‘right’ way to lose? When is losing ever right?
Before I get excommunicated as a Laker fan, just give the podcast a listen and hear me out.
As we near the end of a historically-awful season, the Lakers find themselves with a reasonable shot at a top-3 pick. Whatever order the Lakers find themselves in, a huge question remains:
Who should the Lakers choose with their draft pick?
From popular-names, like Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker, to enticing risks, such as Dante Exum and Joel Embiid, we go through some names that the Lakers should seriously consider in the draft.

With reports that Phil Jackson is headed to work for the New York Knicks as their “President of Basketball Operations,” Laker fans are left in shambles… Or are we?
Could this be a strategic move by Phil to force Jim Buss to make a move? Could this be Jeanie Buss giving a big “F-U” to her brother?
Or is Phil Jackson really headed to the Knicks? Does that mean we’re screwed? Does that leave Laker fans any hope?
After the Lakers finally snapped their 7-game losing streak last night against the Cleveland Cavaliers, someone got fired.
We go over exactly who that was (and why they got fired), along with a review of last night’s really weird Lakers game (LA literally ran out of players.)
For weeks I was told that this Super Bowl match-up was one for the ages: the best offense EVER, in Denver, goes up against the best defense the NFL has to offer, in Seattle. I was excited. I was hyped. I was ready for a classic.
What I, and the rest of the world, got instead was a sh*tty Super Bowl. Peyton Manning sucked, the Broncos defense sucked, the Broncos special teams sucked, the commercials sucked – which leaves the question: what DIDN’T suck about Super Bowl 48?
Along with that answer and some other quick thoughts on the Super Bowl, we end the podcast with the latest rumor that the Lakers and Suns are involved in trade talks involving Pau Gasol (16:50).
Kobe Bryant has signed a 2-year extension with the Lakers, worth somewhere around $23.5 million and $25 million. We ask:
- What does this mean for the Lakers, in terms of signing future free-agents?
- Is Kobe really a selfish a-hole like everyone is claiming?
- Is everyone else being selfish a-hole’s for calling Kobe a selfish a-hole?
- Is this a good thing or a bad thing?
Plus, an added bonus: Kevin’s Top-3 “teams to watch instead of the Lakers”.
As some of you guys know, I also do another podcast called “The Angone and Ko Show” or “The AKS Podcast” for short. Here’s our latest one, where we talked some Lakers and Dodgers:
In Episode 6, Angone and Ko review the biggest stories in the LA sports scene:
- Reviewing the Lakers first two games against the Clippers and Warriors (First impressions, outlook on the rest of the season)
- Reviewing the Dodgers season, looking at which Dodger free-agents should be resigned, what free-agents in the market the Dodgers should look the sign, and what to do with Clayton Kershaw’s contract situation (11:55)
