In this hour-long episode of the Locked On Nuggets podcast, I am joined by Pete Zayas of the Laker Film Room podcast and YouTube channel to talk about two of my favorite players in the NBA: Nikola Jokic, and Lonzo Ball. Both players are incredibly unique, possess elite passing, vision, and feel for the game. Both are somewhat unconventional in approach. We begin the conversation by talking about all of the ways in which the two are similar players and then discuss just how effective this style of offense can be.
Toward the end of the show we talk briefly about AAU basketball and the nature of player development.
Zayas is a great follow on twitter, even if you aren’t a fan of the Lakers. He brings a wealth of basketball knowledge and is great at communicating complex basketball ideas through video. His podcast is a great listen as well for Lakers related topics but occasionally dishes on other players and teams. I especially enjoyed the episodes on summer league.
