Land O’Lakers Podcast: Mitch Kupchak drops hints about the future, secret tanking?, and more

Posted by on Jul 31, 2013 in Lakers Analysis, Mailbag, Mitch Kupchak, Opinion, Podcast, Steve Blake | 2 comments

Another week, another stoking of the Kamenetzky Brothers Podcasting Machine, a smoke-spewing testament to the ingenuity of man. (The machine, not the podcast.) Among the high points of this week’s show:

  • We use a solid question via Facebook from Phil Loos to launch into a conversation about Mitch Kupchak’s conversation with Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times. Kupchak says the team is playing to win. Is he telling the truth? Ought they embrace the tank? From there, we break down some revealing comments Kupchak made about the summer of 2014, and how the Lakers might approach free agency. Comments that should make Lakers fans feel good.
  • Elias Harris!
  • It looks like Lamar Odom won’t be coming to L.A. At this point, it’s reasonable to wonder where he’ll end up this season, if anywhere. Could he go from Sixth Man of the Year in April of 2011 to out of the league in the fall of 2013?
  • Ask a Kamenetzky! What sport is best for non-sports fans to pick up in efforts to conform to societal norms? Should Lakers fans ignore Lakers-hating Bill Simmons? This weird-ass question, and a referendum on Kate Upton dance moves.

Podcast: Lakers injuries pile up, the future for Mike D'Antoni and Phil Jackson, Trips to Mars

Posted by on Apr 26, 2013 in Blogs we like, Interview, Jerry Buss, Lakers Analysis, Mailbag, Mitch Kupchak, Podcast, Q & A | 3 comments

How bad have things become for L.A.? They”re now down 0-2 to the Spurs after , and compared to the aftermath, that”s the good news.

Lakers injuries are piling up like cars on the 110 during rush hour. Thursday, they announced an in-game hamstring pull suffered by Steve Blake will leave him indefinitely sidelined. Additionally, Steve Nash, after re-aggravating his recent hamstring problem is doubtful for Friday”s Game 3. Ditto Jodie Meeks, whose Game 1 ankle sprain prevented him from participating Wednesday. As we joked in a previous podcast, this is been the basketball version of ”Final Destination.”  Scarily — or perhaps mercifully — we”re running out of characters to maim.

But even with bodies dropping left and right, the show must go on. Among the talking points:

  • With the guard tandem now down to Darius Morris, Andrew Goudelock and perhaps a converted-on-the-fly Robert Sacre, is there any possible way for the Lakers to remain competitive?
  • As bad as things have gotten, can the season at least be appreciated for the team-wide grit displayed down the stretch?
  • Armed with new information, we revisit a subject bandied about beforeWould it have been better to simply miss the playoffs altogether?
  • With Mike Brown back for a second tour as the Cavs” head coach, the Lakers now owe him less money, making it (for many fans, at least) more financially feasible to can Mike D”Antoni and rehire Phil Jackson. But on a few levels, is The Zen Master a realistic option?
  • If that”s not doable, what about a different coach, but PJ joining Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak in the front office?
  • Applications are being taken for one-way tickets to Mars in 2022. Who is the prime demographic applying for  the expedition?

Podcast: K-Brothers return, Lakers on a roll (?), the playoffs, and poetry!

Posted by on Feb 28, 2013 in Kobe Bryant, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Mailbag, Metta World Peace, Opinion, Podcast | 8 comments

The Land O’Lakers podcast has returned!

Pardon our dust — we’re still learning our way around the whole self-production thing — but we’re again up and running, and in this episode, after a brief illustration of our newfound editorial liberties, address the following:

  • The Lakers are 11-5 since the big team meeting in Memphis. But how well are they actually playing? Does the positive record mean they have, to use a favorite expression of Mike D’Antoni, turned a corner? For real, this time? 
  • With construction jobs

    ankle injury
    plantar fasciitis treatment

    24 games to play, the Lakers have three games to make up on Houston, 3.5 on Utah. Can they do it? Will they? What reasons should fans have to feel positively? (Note: The show was recorded Wednesday afternoon, before both the Rockets and Jazz lost that night. As of Thursday morning, the Lakers are now 2.5 and 3.0 games behind Houston and Utah, respectively.) 
  • Facebook Mailbag: Does D’Antoni use his bench properly? Would the Lakers be better off facing Oklahoma City or San Antonio in the first round, if they make it to the postseason?
  • Finally, the poetry of Metta World Peace.
