Producer’s note: Hi it’s me JC, the producer and host of this episode. This was a video podcast uploaded to YouTube, there is some analysis that can be gleaned from listening to it, but this episode is best viewed on the SportsEthos YouTube channel, but thank you for the audio download.
JC goes solo in this one to recap some of Spencer Dinwiddie’s first minutes as a Lakers, raves about Austin Reaves as he often does, and takes a look at the standings to discover that maybe better times are ahead? Listen or watch to find out.
Following a quiet deadline that saw the Lakers sit on the sidelines, Ethan and JC return to discuss the Lakers inactivity and where the team goes from here. With Max Christie now shelved, and the Lakers searching for healthy bodies, the fellas also explore some potential on the buyout market.
These Lakers may be cut too deep to slap on a band aid over stitches, but as every Lakers fans remembers for the wrong reason, as Kevin Garnett once famously said, anything is possible.
Come for the show but stay for the energy because there’s a lot of it in this one.
Ethan and JC are back with a brand new video element to supplement the pipes and it’s just in time for the impending trade deadline. With Jarred Vanderbilt (foot) sounding lost for the season, we explore the ways the Lakers may tweak the roster to address a new glaring hole. And while we don’t see a LeBron trade coming, we also tell you why we feel it’s unlikely from a pragmatic and emotional standpoint.
Can the Lakers finally ride the East Coast road trip momentum into winning ways, or will it be another season hovering around the .500 mark with the hope that the playoffs offer something more than the first 82?
Following a much needed win against the cross-town Clippers, Ethan is back on the mic to look at this Lakers team at large.
If it’s gonna happen, it has to happen now.
Whether possible trades, the ever changing starting lineup or someone else trying to fire Darvin Ham, there’s a lot of smoke on this Lakers fire right now, and Ethan strokes those flames with ferocity in order to see what lights up.
JC is back to preview tonight’s game vs the Miami Heat. He also takes a look at some trade rumors and could there be a rift between Darvin Ham and Austin Reaves? Which side would you choose if you had to make a decision between Darvin Ham or Austin Reaves? JC has his answer on this episode and much more!
The Lakers are 2-6 since “winning it all,” and like a full grown adult who peaked in high school, the current results offer a bad look.
Ethan is back on a solo ride to discuss fine Lakers most obvious problems, why a magic bullet fix is not in the mix, and how Darvin Ham’s seat might be warmer than an air fryer in a love-filled Jewish household on Christmas Day.
Plus, Ethan breaks down the depth that is looking rather shallow, how the Lakers results impact LeBron’s future, and what the club has to look like going forward in order to be anything more than a .500 team.
Fresh off being crowned the inaugural In-Season Champions, Ethan and JC are back to break it all down, including AD’s dominance, the rise of the Vandelorian, and LeBron entering a territory that simply hasn’t been seen before.
The Lakers look locked in, connected, and ready to win, but the trade rumors will continue to spin. Will LA look to deal or will they choose to keep it real?
Come on in and join us on a short stroll down Lakers Blvd as LA prepares for the next third of its season to unfold.
The fellas are back and, dare we say, so are the Lakers?
Supported by LeBron James playing like the half human half extraterrestrial that he is, LA may be on their way to figuring a few things out and cementing their spot as the inaugural in-season tournament favorites.
Ethan and JC deliver a passionate ode to LeBron, dish on Austin Reaves off the bench, Jarred Vanderbilt’s impending return, and more toward what it’ll take for these Lakers to truly hit on all cylinders.
Come for the discussion, stay for the fruit of the day!
Winless on the road, and hopeless on the glass, the Lakers find themselves in a familiar place to begin the season.
Ethan and JC are back to discuss how the Lakers underwhelming start to the season has a long-term impact that might wind up wasting LeBron’s greatness.
The fellas also discuss Christian Wood’s evolving role, the importance of role players on a team build around stars, and what needs to happen for the Lakers to be grab it at the pomegranate and not trying to figure out how to crack the shell.
Sitting at 2-2, things could be much worse at 1-3, or even a dreaded 0-4. But this Lakers team rallies and fights. Ethan takes you through the first week, guides us through some breathing exercises as the marathon of a season gets underway.
Well as my old high school football coach would say ‘Well, that ain’t worth a crap!’ As the Lakers lose the season opener vs the defending champions that knocked them out of the playoffs a season ago, is it all doom and gloom or were there positives in this game that could inspire hope?
JC takes you through the loss and examines if it’s time to panic or simply just 1 of 82 and sometimes losses are inevitable. We’ll go through the box score and see where improvement might be needed, or what else to look forward to this season. It’ll be a long one, folks, as they always are, but at least this is a scrappier bunch than we’ve seen before.
