Welcome to The Void, a new basketball series from The Ringer and Kevin O’Connor. In the premiere episode, we take a look at how the Los Angeles Lakers’ offseason additions of Dennis Schröder, Montrezl Harrell, Marc Gasol, and Wesley Matthews are making the team even better than last year’s championship squad. Kevin breaks down how these new additions are playing alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis and hears from Lakers head coach Frank Vogel, Gasol, and Matthews on how the new pieces are elevating the team’s level of play. Plus, a breakdown of how Talen Horton-Tucker can help with the Lakers’ short- and long-term success.
