Are the Lakers Good Yet? Plus Tom Petty and the R’n'R HOF

Posted by on Oct 5, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast | 0 comments

So three preseason games in, are the 2017-18 Lakers good yet? No? Why not? We discuss. From there, what are the most interesting parts of the annual NBA GM Survey? Where does Lonzo Ball fit into it all? And are the Lakers going a little overboard fueling the Lonzo Hype Machine? Finally (on the basketball end of things, at least) Luke Walton dropped some serious hints as to what type of year he thinks this is for his developing group. We decode.

In non-sports news, the death of Tom Petty was (rightly and understandably) overshadowed by the horrendous violence in Las Vegas, but worth some reflection. And as we do every year, it’s time to break down this year’s nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Lee Jenkins on Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Lonzo Ball, and More!

Posted by on Sep 22, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

He’s the best in the business, and now he’s on our show. Lee Jenkins of Sports Illustrated joins us to talk about his new feature on Dwight Howard — well worth the read — including a dive into Howard’s time in L.A., and how his insecurity fits a larger theme we’re seeing more of in the NBA (see Durant, Kevin). From there, we kick around the future of next summer’s star free agents like LeBron James, Paul George, and Russell Westbrook. Plus, along with his thoughts on Lonzo Ball and whether anything the media or his dad can conjure might trip him up this year.

Jenkins is always insightful and thought provoking, and this conversation is no different.

Enjoy!

Michael Apted, Director

Posted by on Aug 30, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Podcast, Q & A |

Few directors in Hollywood have had a career with as much variety as Michael Apted. His resume includes critically acclaimed films like “Coal Miner’s Daughter” and “Gorillas In the Mist,” big budget franchise movies from the Bond and Narnia series, and landmark documentaries — his “Up” series, which has for 50 years followed a group of British school children every seven years since they were seven years old. (It’s truly remarkable.)

I had a chance to speak with Apted at length about (among other things) the process of filmmaking, both features and documentaries, what he’s learned from the incredible roster of actors with whom he’s worked over the years, and his new film “Unlocked,” which opens September 1st and stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Douglas, Toni Collette, Orlando Bloom, and John Malkovich.

Are the Lakers Tampering? Plus, Big Trades, and a Statue? Yessir!

Posted by on Aug 25, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

Big news this week… The Lakers are under investigation!

The Indiana Pacers are salty about Paul George’s departure, and believe the Lakers may have had something to do with it. Their midwestern sensibilities ruffled, Indiana demanded the league launch an investigation. We ask the big questions (starting with, “Did they do it?” moving to “Can they prove it?” and finishing with “Should tampering even matter?”). From there, it’s a breakdown of this week’s blockbuster sending Kyrie Irving to Boston. Who got what they needed from this, and how does it impact the Lakers?

Finally, with tampering in the news, we give a statue (sort of) to the guy at the center of the NBA’s last major tampering scandal… Joe Smith! Yes, the same Joe Smith who played 12 games with the Lakers in 2010-11, and averaged a robust 0.5 ppg.

Because in our world, every Laker gets a statue.

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 |

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…
