How Can or Rather Should the Lakers Replace Boogie Cousins? (Hollywood Hoops NBA Podcast)

After combing through the Los Angeles Lakers’ 2019-20 schedule on the previous episode of Hollywood Hoops, Eric Pincus and Josh Martin were prepared to do the same for the L.A. Clippers on this week’s edition. Then, DeMarcus Cousins tore his ACL in Las Vegas, thereby opening a whole new can of worms for the co-hosts to consider. With respect to the Clippers (and their latest community initiative spearheaded by Kawhi Leonard), Eric and Josh postpone their Clippers schedule breakdown to consider every angle of Boogie’s latest injury—from what it means for his career and the extent to which the Lakers actually need another big man, to the possibility of Dwight Howard returning to L.A. and the other candidates who could battle Anthony Davis and JaVale McGee for minutes in the middle.
