In this episode of The NBA Podcast, Bryan Toporek (@btoporek) and special guest Anthony Irwin (@AnthonyIrwinLA) of Locked on Lakers preview the 2019 NBA conference finals and discuss the Los Angeles Lakers’ debacle of a coaching search.
Even if Kevin Durant misses the whole series, do the Portland Trail Blazers stand a chance against the Golden State Warriors? How can the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks stop Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kawhi Leonard, respectively?
Why did the Lakers balk at offering Ty Lue more than a three-year deal? How should Lakers fans feel about the direction of the franchise after the hiring of Frank Vogel?
