In this episode, Jonathan catches up with Alan and gets his updated thoughts on this “legit”, good Lakers team who has prided themselves on making Defense exciting. They touch upon LAL’s recent win streak and road trip, talk about how rootable and fun this team is, and also give some praise to Frank Vogel. To end the show, Jonathan recaps the Raptors loss and urges everyone to chill out, take a step back, and maintain some perspective. Lakers Spoiled Exceptionalism is back with the winning ways and we’ve got to learn how to check ourselves. What a great problem to have these days!
