Of course, we could focus on the Los Angeles Lakers barely beating the Houston Rockets. We could consider the fact that they could very easily still be looking for their first win. It might be mentioned in passing that the defense is about as effective as a Southern California stop sign.
But what fun would it all be? So instead of worrying or even thinking about these and other valid questions you might have about the Lakers, you should listen to the joy in the voices of myself and this week’s guest on “The Anthony Irwin Show” as we discover that the NBA could have brought back the 90s.
For those more interested in a recap of the game this is how I open the show and today’s Lowdown also offers more information on that, but given how good it was fun talking to Trey, I wanted to walk around as little as possible.
We started our conversation with Alex Caruso, who single-handedly lifted the Chicago Bulls in a way that no other player in the history of this franchise has ever done. Trey said Caruso not only received MVP chants from the Bulls crowd, but later said he was apparently used to such a thing. Nothing but respect for the luxury tax gawd.
From there, we discussed what Trey thinks about the Lakers and this NBA season in general, how the league has evolved over the time he’s spent covering it, the aforementioned rebirth of the ’90s. and an unhappy track record that he and I apparently have in common.
