Los Angeles Lakers point guard Quinn Cook was a guest on All The Smoke podcast with former NBA players Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson. They chatted about Cook’s career and what it means for him to play for the Purple & Gold.

The former NBA champion with the Golden State Warriors revealed how lucky he is to have the opportunity to learn from veterans like LeBron James, Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley. Cook described the Lakers locker room as the best mixture of basketball.

“I got to learn from ‘Bron, Rondo, Avery Bradley. Dwight Howard is on the team. Me and AD grew up playing against each other. DeMarcus Cousins is here. It’s just the best mixture of basketball all in one locker room. And I just take time to realize how lucky I am and don’t take nothing for granted. I try to learn, I try to work as much as possible.”
