It's time for a Lakers 2021 season autopsy, and there's no better basketball mortician for these purposes than the Kamenetzky Brothers' favorite guest, NBA analyst and former team videographer Mo Dakhil (Bleacher Report, The Athletic, @MoDakhil_NBA)!
Since the first round exit, there's been a lot of debate about how good of a team the Lakers really had, and whether they could realistically have repeated as constructed, if healthy. Mo offers his assessment, plus thoughts on two key young players, the Andre Drummond/Anthony Davis/LeBron James fit, the team's defensive success, Frank Vogel's coaching acumen, and more.
Hosts: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky
SEGMENT 1: The Lakers' season ended with a whimper, but the team was also rolling before a slew of injuries. Was this a legit championship roster before the wheels came off? Mo offers his opinion.
SEGMENT 2: More thoughts on the roster. Could Drummond work with Davis and LeBron? Is it worth trying another season? Mo also explains why Kyle Kuzma's defensive development is critically important moving forward.
SEGMENT 3: What is the defensive upside of Talen Horton-Tucker? How did Frank Vogel's approach allow the Lakers do succeed on that end, despite so many players in and out of the lineup.
