Lakers Fast Break- A Week of Major Decisions for the NBA and its Players…with Rafael Barlowe!

Rafael Barlowe from NBA Draft Junkies stopped by to talk about the important week ahead for the NBA and its players with having to commit by 6/24 to the bubble in Orlando. We look deeper into the faction of players that are talking about not going, why they’re doing it, and the platform they are looking for in order to advance the great cause of racial equality. We also talk about the Lakers and how the hiring of Dr. Karida Brown as Director of Racial Equality and Action is a step in the right direction but what does the NBA need to do more when it comes to the head coaching spots and front office/ownership positions for women and people of color. All this and Rafael also talks about the process for draft analysts at this time of the year on players rising or falling in their evaluations and Rafael recently spent some time as the New York Knicks General Manager for one of his latest videos. How did it go? And what was the feedback from Knicks fans? All this and more on another great episode of the Lakers Fast Break podcast!
