Brandon Ingram… Untouchable?

Posted by on May 26, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion | 0 comments

After a technical foul in our first try for this week’s podcast, we’re back with a 2.0. And people, it’s bigger, and better than the first. So you’re lucky we had to go back.

On the agenda…

  • Lonzo Ball says he won’t work out for the Celtics… but will work out for Philly.
  • Magic Johnson says Brandon Ingram is basically untouchable. Should he be?
  • Gunnar Peterson, LA’s new strength and conditioning guy!

And from there…

  • The Finals are set. Can Cleveland pull the upset?
  • What does this do for LeBron’s legacy, whether compared to Kobe (thanks for bringing it up, Scottie Pippen) or LeBron James?

And from there…

Podcast! The Lakers land at #2… so it’s Lonzo Ball, right?

Posted by on May 19, 2017 in Opinion, Podcast | 0 comments

The basketball gods have smiled on the Lakers.

Or, perhaps more likely (if you think like we do), the NBA finally finished making good on “basketball reasons,” keeping the Lakers in the 2017 Draft and finally closing the book on a sordid chapter in league history.

So what do the Lakers do? Take Lonzo Ball? Trade the pick? Keep Lonzo, and trade other stuff? No matter what, the Lakers have options, and averted a disaster that would have lengthened the rebuild by at least a couple seasons, likely more.

So much to discuss…

Dave McMenamin on “Return of the King,” NBA Playoffs

Posted by on Apr 27, 2017 in Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

Fun times this week as we welcome former ESPNLA Lakers colleague-turned-Cavs-guy Dave McMenamin, who, as is often the case, has apparently done quite well after distancing himself from us.

These days, Dave doesn’t just cover the NBA for ESPN, he’s also a New York Times bestselling author. With Brian Windhorst, Dave has written the new book “Return of the King,” which documents the return of LeBron James to Cleveland and the championship season that would eventually come. It’s a great read for NBA fans, well worth the time. After, we kicked around the Cavs in this year’s playoffs, as well as a few other big postseason topics.

Enjoy! And buy the book.

The Playoffs, Paul George, Pelinka and Prince

Posted by on Apr 22, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Opinion, Podcast | 2 comments

That’s basically the agenda for Friday’s show. The playoffs are playing out in such a way that fans hoping for Paul George-to-LA can’t be anything but hopeful. Meanwhile, the front office in full sale mode, not of players but of themselves. We review some of Rob Pelinka’s most revealing comments from exit interviews, along with the thoroughly modern way in which the sale is being executed.

Things are different in El Segundo, that’s for sure.

We talk about that stuff, plus the leadership qualities (developing or otherwise) for D’Angelo Russell, and finally commemorate the 1-year anniversary of Prince’s death with an exercise that reveals how incredible quality of his catalog.

Tabitha Soren on Photography, Media, and Baseball

Posted by on Apr 22, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Podcast |

If you’re of a certain age (say… ours) you likely have very specific memories of Tabitha Soren — the red-haired girl teaching us about politics and world affairs on MTV, encouraging us to Rock the Vote. But Soren has been out of media for a while now, and deep into a second career as a photographer.

Her new book is a unique supplement to the “Moneyball” story. Soren photographed the members of that famous 2002 Oakland A’s draft class over a stretch of years, cataloguing success and failure as well as the subtleties of baseball easily missed by fans. The result: Fantasy Life: Baseball and the American Dream.

We spoke to her about the book, baseball, and her life in media as both a journalist and now an artist.

Soren will be appearing at Arcana Books in Culver City on Saturday, April 29 from 4-6 pm. It’s worth checking out. The book is very cool, and she’s had a really fascinating career.
