Hey GT, do you know if anyone's writing about Jeanie's hostile takeover? I'm still curious about who the source was for Kevin Ding's article contrasting Jeanie's magnanimity after losing her dog with Mitch's reluctance to bring up the death of his teenage daughter at work.

Remember that? Is anyone writing about that?


I don't really read much content that covers the off-the-court stuff, but I'd very surprised if someone was.

Have you ever interacted with ownership?


I've interacted with a couple of them, yeah. Nothing beyond surface level stuff though.

Looking forward to the Kuzma defense improvement video, GT (the one you mentioned over twitter recently).

Trying to have it out tomorrow.

GT what do you think about Zo's foot position when he's off ball behind the 3 point line?

I'd love to see him have his right foot back and hands ready to receive a pass rather than standing square to the rim with hands down.

He gets that 3 ball going and all of the sudden back cuts open up too.

What does he need to do in your opinion to mechanically improve his distance shooting consistency?

Totally agree with this. I also think that he has a hard time catching the ball across his body and then getting into his usual shooting form.

Awesome! Been waiting for this, thanks GT.

I'm just glad he is improving on that end, even if he isn't a stopper, he at least isn't a terrible defender now like JClarkson was for us before.

The sequence at 1:30 in the video is one of the best stands I've seen him have. He does seem to be a little hoppy every now and then but he has cut it down quite a bit. Keep working on it, hope he tries to emulate Klay Thompson because he is obviously a much better wing defender than big defender.

GT, you add so much to every Lakers podcast - you even make Anthony tolerable.

Looking forward to future LFR podcasts *hint hint*

Probably not a great career move at this point to turn into an adversarial investigative reporter.

Heh, thank you. Anthony's also been trying to be more tolerable, to his credit.

And the LFR pod's been tough to do on a regular basis. We recorded the other night about the Anthony Davis stuff but it was a jumbled mess and I'm not sure I want to release it. They also take 6-8 hours to edit, so on top of my other responsibilities (plus scheduling conflicts) they've been less frequent.

Honestly, man...I'm kind of exhausted. I love every moment of it, but I do this from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to sleep, nearly every day. I haven't been able to get everything done that I want to get done but I'm working on some structural changes that can help with that.

We really appreciate all the content you put out, GT (even if we don't realize how much work it is to make)!

At the same time, we don't want you to burn out!

Hope you can find a balance that works for everyone.

You know, Pete, I actually can't imagine. I've been an overworked office drone for most of my professional career in the private and public sectors, and so I can do nothing but respect how hard you work and how much you want to accomplish with your entrepreneurial spirit versus the finite resources of time and your own mental and physical well-being. I am blown away by your successful trajectory and the growth of your business in such a short period of time.

You're allowed to be exhausted. You're allowed to rest. I'll be an LFR podcast subscriber and listener whenever and forever. And that's because of who you are and the knowledge you bring to the game and the Lakers franchise - that isn't going away. Hell, I subscribed to the Athletic for a year to read your words, not just hear your voice or watch your vids. You're a true talent, dude, don't let my schlubby office drone ass discourage you with demands.

Also, I love Anthony unadulterated like I love Darius. I hope Darius is in a better place after such a profound loss, and 1) I respect the hiatus in LFR podcast content while 2) I love that you're on Spotify now.

This was really thoughtful and kind and I'm grateful for it. Thank you.

I'm certainly not discouraged by your demands, I feel bad that I'm not producing as much material as I'd like to. Like, I have this Vivid Seats sponsorship now where part of the deal is that they want weekly Top 5 Highlights for LeBron James. That's not really my lane but they're making it worth my while and it barely takes any time at all, so it's worth it to me.

But people are (understandably) like "what the heck is this?" when I post them on YouTube especially if I haven't had a straight analysis piece in a week. I'm working on it though.
