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)
