Nick Young the Hero, Randle’s Upside, R&R HOF, and Kwame!

Posted by on Oct 21, 2016 in Julius Randle, Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Lou Williams, Luke Walton | 2 comments

The Lakers (and every other NBA team) are just about ready to kick off the 2016-17 season. Sweet! So what to watch for?

After the big headlines of the day, including stories of Melo-as-activist and an admission from Kevin Durant about what motivated his move to Golden State — we break down this year’s NBA.com GM Survey. What are the surprises? What do GM’s say about the Lakers, and Luke Walton?

From there… it’s Nick Young. Because he’s the most surprising story of training camp, and it’s really not close. After, we take a look at Julius Randle, probably the most “controversial” Lakers young ‘un, insofar as future projections are concerned. How good to opposing scouts think he is?

Finally, we cap this week’s episode with our yearly look at the newest nominees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame… and hand out a statue to Kwame Brown!

Jordan Clarkson the 6th man, good CBA news, and Sasha statues!

Posted by on Oct 11, 2016 in Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle, Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers News, Lou Williams, Opinion, Podcast | 1 comment

With preseason games 2 and 3 in the books, we have a little better feel for this Lakers team, and for the first time in a while… the sun is poking through the clouds!

This team, in our humble opinion, still isn’t going to win a ton of games, but on both sides of the ball have given Lakers fans all the feels to this point in the fake game schedule. Some of the more interesting trends: Jordan Clarkson has come off the bench for all three games, with Lou Williams as a starter. The results have been positive all around, so will Luke Walton stick with that lineup? If so, is that a good thing? Julius Randle has improved his playmaking skills over the offseason. How far can he take it? What about Brandon Ingram? Any concern over his slow start?

This after kicking around some big news, including happy reports on negotiations for a new CBA, and a very unusual ambassadorship for Yao Ming.

Plus, we reveal our most intriguing non-Warriors/Cavs teams in both conferences. Then we cap it off not just with statues for Sasha Vujacic, but a rousing game of Sasha Vujacic trivia!

It’s likely more than you can handle in a single episode, but we’re willing to risk it.

PODCAST! The Lakers’ roster, Summer League, Cosby, Trump, summer movies and the sun!

Posted by on Jul 16, 2015 in Brandon Bass, Byron Scott, D'Angelo Russell, Jeanie Buss, Jim Buss, Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle, Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Lakers Analysis, Lou Williams, Mitch Kupchak, Opinion, Podcast, Roy Hibbert, The Fast and the Furious | 1 comment

The Lakers’ roster has taken shape, and the youngsters are in Vegas for some Summer League action. Before too long, the season will be upon us and for the first time since the “super-team” debacle, we could be treated to 82 games’ worth of genuine intrigue and stakes, even with the playoffs an unlikely destination. It would be a nice change of pace.

The show can be heard by clicking on the module and a list of talking points can be found below. Among the high points:

  • OUR TOP STORY: With Brandon Bass, Roy Hibbert, and Lou Williams now officially in the fold, the roster is more or less complete, save an unexpected turn of events. We share our thoughts on this year’s squad.
  • HEADLINES: With the free agency dust now settled, we examine the winners and losers of the offseason.
  • OUR ALMOST TOP STORY: Led by the trio of D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, and Jordan Clarkson, this year’s summer league squad may be the most anticipated in Lakers history. Safe to say, they haven’t played up to the hype. In particular, Russell and Randle have periodically struggled. How concerned should fans be over this showing?
  • OUR NOT SPORTS STORIES: First, it’s been announced that Bill Cosby and Donald Trump, despite recent controversies, will not lose their stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Plus, the sun is apparently about to run out. No. Seriously.
  • PERSON OF INTEREST: Or “persons,” more accurately. Batman and Superman, who’ll square off next summer in ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.’ The new trailer is out, and quite frankly, we don’t get it.
  • AAK!!! Keeping with the POI theme, we address a series of summer movie-themed questions. What is our favorite “ceviche and Corona” summer movie? What’s our all-time favorite summer movie-going experience? Will ‘Ant-Man’ continue Marvel’s string of box office smashes? Plus, our thoughts on ‘Boyhood,’ which actually was a summer movie (and in its own right, a huge hit) last year.
  • RECOMMENDED READING:The Best Team Money Can Buy,Molly Knight’s deep dive into the Dodgers’ tumultuous 2014 season. The book is getting fantastic reviews, and Molly is a great writer and our friend, so we’re urging everyone to pick up a copy.
