Lonzo Ball vs. ?, Golden State vs. Everyone, Jerry West vs. the Lakers

Posted by on Jun 16, 2017 in Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Magic Johnson, Opinion, Podcast | 2 comments

Those are the big themes this week, with the Finals complete and the Draft a week away.

We start on the Finals, and the fallout from Golden State’s dominant win over Cleveland, despite a historic performance from LeBron James and excellent work from Kyrie Irving. They, like the rest of the league, weren’t close. So what does that mean for the NBA, and specifically rebuilding teams like the Lakers?

From there, we look at the Draft. Plenty of smoke out there indicating the Lakers could pass on Lonzo Ball for Josh Jackson. Should they? What about a trade?

Finally, The Logo is back in Los Angeles, but (at least in the minds of many Lakers fans) working for the wrong squad. How upset should Lakers fans be?

And a reminder — we’ll be hosting ESPNLA’s post-Draft coverage from the facility in El Segundo on Thursday night, starting at 7 pm and running until we’re done. Given how much could be going on that night, we could be in for a long, intriguing show! Hope you can tune in.

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…

How Good Is the Young Core (Compared To All the Others)?

Posted by on Apr 5, 2017 in Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast | 3 comments

The big question facing the Lakers as the season winds down (other than those related to lottery odds) centers around the young core, and determining where the Lakers need to go from here. How good are these guys, exactly? How do they compare with other young cores around the league? The answer goes a long way to determining just how far the Lakers need to go, given all the teams they need to jump to reach the top — or even the semi-top — of the Western Conference.

It was a theme running through a few big picture NBA features this week, whether talking about the best of the worst teams in the Association, or how re-do’s of the last two Drafts might look.

All that, plus big headlines (KD returning, Cleveland bickering) and a Hallmark Christmas Quiz.

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.

Jordan Clarkson 2.0, Russell the Leader, and KD’s Bum Knee

Posted by on Mar 4, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

So about five minutes after we finished recording today, the news broke about the newest kerfuffle between Jim and Jeanie Buss, meaning we didn’t cover it in this show. Fortunately, there’s plenty of reason to believe this won’t be the only opportunity. (And if it is, all the better for the Lakers.)

So what was on the agenda? Glad you asked!

  • Lou Williams is gone, meaning Jordan Clarkson has an opportunity to be more the guy he was as a rookie. Earlier this week, Luke Walton broke down where he thinks Clarkson’s game is going, and how he can get there. We opine.
  • The Lakers are looking for leadership, specifically in the fourth quarter. Who’s gonna deliver? Well, it probably has to be D’Angelo Russell, given the construction of the roster. So is he up for it? What will it take to make Russell the leader L.A. is searching for? We opine.
  • Kevin Durant is down, and likely out for the regular season. What does that mean for the Western Conference playoff race? We (wait for it…) opine. Plus, Cleveland has added some talent, and the Knicks are back to relying on “proven shot-maker” Sasha Vujacic.
  • Finally, we look back at the career of Bill Paxton, who died unexpectedly last week at 61.
