2012 Playoff Podcast No. 1: Kevin Ding

Now that the playoffs have started, there are ever so more many interesting topics to delve into here in Los Angeles, and few platforms provide for easier access to in depth analysis than the podcast.

And so, we’ll be posting regular pods featuring various guests that have a level of expertise on either the Lakers or L.A.’s opponents, beginning with longtime Orange County Register beat writer and columnist Kevin Ding, who also previewed the series with us on LakersTV.

After an impressive 15-point Game 1 victory over Denver featuring Andrew Bynum’s triple-double with 10 blocks (tying an NBA record), we discussed what the performance might mean moving forward into the playoffs, what makes Bynum tick and how his teammates respond to his personality, in addition to a breakdown of all things Kobe Bryant (Ding has been covering Bryant since 1999).
