    Lakers Podcast: The Search For A Superstar, Plus Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Breaks Out

    Do the Lakers have to have another superstar?


    The Los Angeles Lakers will be searching for superstars this summer with a mountain of cap space at their disposal. The team has historically been built around some of the best that the NBA has to offer, but do they have to have one in order to return to the top of the NBA?

    The latest episode of the LN Podcast takes a look at this issue as host Trevor Lane is joined by LN’s own Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin of Locked On Lakers.

    Los Angeles has long been a Lakers town, but with so many other options in Southern Calfornia, is there pressure on the Lakers to claw their way back to the top sooner rather than later?

    Plus, we discuss the impressive play of Kenatvious Caldwell-Pope, who has shot lights-out since the calendar turned to 2018. Should the Lakers consider bringing him back? Not only has his play on the floor been impressive, but he shares an agent with LeBron James, a connection that could come in handy when free agency begins.

    In terms of cap space, keeping KCP could be problematic, but it’s possible that his play on the floor has simply been too good to part with.

    Finally, we wrap things up by discussing Ivica Zubac, who hasn’t lived up to expectations following an impressive rookie campaign. Is it time to part ways with the big man, or can he bring back the skills that had everyone so excited last season?
