Lakers Scout/Director of Video Services Chris Bodaken began dissecting the Suns on film before L.A. had even finished off the Jazz, and shared some of what he saw with us on the latest version of our Playoff Podcast.
Bodaken also happened to be the guy who picked Kobe Bryant up at the airport when he was a 17-year-old kid, and he told us a story about meeting Kobe before detailing how their long-time relationship has made it easier for Bodaken to know how No. 24 likes to get his video cut. Furthermore, Bodaken offered his thoughts on working for Lakers Head Coach Phil Jackson and alongside L.A.’s assistant coaches, which in the case of Phoenix is Brian Shaw.
