Podcast: Schedules, Expectations, Political Athletes, and VH1

Posted by on Aug 18, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast | 0 comments

This week…

The Lakers schedule is out. What’s interesting? Start with the national TV schedule, for one. So how does all that air time impact Lonzo Ball’s ROY hopes, and how do Lonzo Ball’s ROY hopes impact the Lakers 2018 plan? From there, we look at D’Angelo Russell’s recent comments about the trade, and a big week for basketball players getting political with Kevin Durant and LeBron James both weighing in on the President.

And from there, we go deep into great teen movies, and celebrate the 20th anniversary of VH1′s “Behind the Music.”

Brandon Ingram… Untouchable?

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

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…

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.

D’Angelo Russell is a starter again! (Plus “Rest-Gate!!!)

Posted by on Mar 21, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast | 1 comment

Showtime!

In today’s episode, we break down the post-Lou work the Lakers have tried to do, gathering information to get ready for this offseason and future (potential) moves. That includes the dramatic, though apparently short-lived, experiment of having D’Angelo Russell come off the bench.

We kick that around, plus take a look at the latest controversy surrounding rest and NBA stars, plus dive deep into the growing group of NBA Flat Earth Truthers.

Jeanie Buss vs. Jim Buss (and Johnny…)

Posted by on Mar 7, 2017 in Jeanie Buss, Jerry Buss, Jim Buss, Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

So, no joke, like five minutes after we finished taping last week’s show, all hell broke loose, in the form of legal drama surrounding the Buss family. But hey, it was Friday afternoon, so re-recording felt like a stretch.

But we’re back today, and there’s actually a little more to talk about now than last week, anyway. We unpack it all. How it happened and what it means. Plus, a critical discussion of where the Moody Blues fit in the birthing of what would eventually become Prog Rock.
