2/12/2024
Anthony opens with a quick recap of the weekend and whether the Lakers are done adding to their roster via this buyout market.

From there, they discuss the job Rob Pelinka has done, how LeBron James might feel about all this and a message the Lakers keep unintentionally sending through their (in)actions.

Lakers wrap up 4-2 road trip; Anthony and Harrison discuss deathly quiet first day of Deadline Week

2/6/2024
The Lakers handled the Hornets in fairly predictable fashion but hey, a win is a win and they wrapped up a 4-2 road trip that should go a long way in convincing the front office to expend asset capital to fortify this roster.

Anthony explains the latest he has on that front, as well as where negotiations between the Lakers and Hawks for Dejounte Murray sit. A ton of information throughout this conversation, with a few dashes of shade directed at anyone who doesn't think Anthony Davis is an all star.
