Alex Caruso became a steady rotational piece of the contending Los Angeles Lakers this season. Caruso recently joined a Zoom media season to talk about the season restart.
Among several topics, Caruso talked on the vocal leadership of Lebron James and Jared Dudley.
According to the Los Angeles Times:
“I would say Dudley and ‘Bron have been the two most vocal,” Caruso said. “That’s pretty normal for them as far as being outgoing, outspoken, making sure we’re all on the same page.
Those are two guys that have been in the league many, many years so they kind of understand what it takes to have a chemistry of a tight-knit group.
Obviously three months, four months away from each other, it’s hard to keep that going. But I think they’ve done a great job of keeping everybody connected.”
Caruso averaged 5.3 points per 17.8 minutes per game with the Lakers this season being a “viral phenomenon” in the last couple of years for his team.
