AC'S Spotlight: Talking Hoops w/ Roland Lazenby


It's been awhile since I did a podcast, but as summer winds down I emerge once again. The Spotlight is back! I was fortunate to come back with a great show featuring author Roland Lazenby. He's written about 5 dozen books covering the sports world, especially basketball. He's currently writing a biography on Michael Jordan that will come out next fall. I was fortunate to have Roland on to talk a bit about the upcoming book, and a little bit of hoops as well.

Knowing his familiarity with the Lakers, we talked heavy on the arrival of Dwight Howard to LA, and how he'll co-exist with Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, and Pau Gasol. Will egos clash on offense? How will they play on defense? Are they going to be good enough to beat the Heat or the Thunder? We talked about all that, and Kobe as he winds down his career. We also discussed how Mike Brown will deal with all this talent and whether he can coach them to a title.

There was discussion about the Heat and how they'll respond to winning a championship. Can they repeat? How will LeBron be different with the monkey off of his back? How about D-Wade? The Heat's chances are handicapped here.

We closed with talking about Phil Jackson, and whether we'll see him again in any capacity? Could he coach the Lakers again? Lots of questions and answers Roland and I speculated on.

I appreciate Roland coming on and hope to have him on again in the future. He's a student of the game and it was awesome to pick his brain on the NBA. You can find him on twitter here to follow his knowledge and insider info.

It's good to be back, and this is just the beginning. There'll be more to come from me, where the spotlight shines brightest on sports.
