Visiting Scout Says…

Before the Lakers played Oklahoma City on Friday night, I caught up with Timberwolves advance scout and assistant coach Brent Haskins, in town to watch OKC leading up to a matchup in Minnesota.

While he was in town, I asked Haskins who he thought posed the greatest challenge to the Lakers this season. You can listen to our conversation by clicking below:

We chatted again briefly after the Lakers dominated OKC, and Haskins told me that if L.A. worked hard defensively, winning a championship would be “a wrap,” another way of saying “it’s over.” That’s good to hear, right?
