VotS Suns podcast — Lakers preview edition No. 1

Posted by on May 12th, 11:59 pm

Back in college at the University of Arizona, my friends were divided into two factions: Suns fans and Lakers fans.

My guest on this edition of the ValleyoftheSuns podcast is one of the most rabid of those Lakers fans, Roman Veytsman, my partner in crime on the Arizona basketball beat and the Dorm Room Sports Chat (a TV show I co-hosted back in the day).

As we can see from the comments on the last few posts, there’s certainly some animosity between Suns and Lakers fans, partially because of the geographic rivalry and also because of some of the intense playoff battles earlier in the Nash Era and throughout the ’70s and ’80s.

Roman and I discuss that Suns/Lakers rivalry, Kobe and former Wildcat Channing Frye before Roman predicts the series.

Michael Schwartz founded ValleyoftheSuns in October 2008 and is the owner/editor emeritus of the site. He is currently working toward his MBA in sports business at San Diego State University.

    This will be one of the more disappointing aspects of the series; LA will have about 20% of US Airways Center filled with Lakers fans

    This is horrible, do I really want to hear a couple UofA grads argue about basketball like drunken frat bros….NO!
