Lakers reporter Dave McMenamin on Luka/KP, Lakers Needs, Clippers in LA, Heat Rookies & Derrick Rose
ESPN’s Dave McMenamin spoke with us prior to the Lakers and Mavs game in Dallas about a variety of different topics such as the combination of Luka Doncic and Kristap Porzingis, holes the Lakers need to fill, Clippers, and Derrick Rose making the all-star team.
“Certainly, there is a scenario where I do see it playing out,” said McMenamin on Rose. “Obviously, he has done well for Detroit numbers-wise already, they’re going to have to win some games, but you talk about a send-off going back to Chicago for the All-Star Game would be a storybook. I covered him in Cleveland and saw what he puts his body through to try to play every game after all the injuries he’s had. I respect him on that level and hope for his sake that if it does happen to give him peace. Where he recognizes, that he might be the only MVP that might not make the Hall of Fame. That’s my story, but a way to reconnect with the city of Chicago and the fans,” McMenamin said.
