We started on the big LA rumor of the day... that Lakers great Pau Gasol is interested in returning for one last season. Is it a good idea? Can the Lakers afford what amounts to a nostalgia play, even for someone as beloved as Pau, in a pandemic year where every player on the roster might be pressed into service?
From there, it's a look at the rest of the West, and who might challenge the Lakers. When looking for teams that might have a shot, is it really just the Clippers? And speaking of them, are they equipped to take the Lakers out? Forget the chemistry problems, do they have the personnel? And does the pressure help or hurt them this year?
Is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar the GOAT? We don't mean in basketball, here, either. We're talking life. Might he be on the Mt. Rushmore of incredibly impressive humans?
Finally, Darius asks which Eastern Conference teams are of interest... and quickly the conversation turns to the Sixers.
