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 | 0 comments

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!

Yacht Rock!

Posted by on Sep 19, 2017 in Opinion, Podcast, Q & A | 0 comments

Music lovers, rejoice! In this podcast, we talk with J.D. Ryznar and Hunter Stair, the pioneers of Yacht Rock. Not the music itself, but the naming of the genre, first through their cult favorite web series from a decade or so ago, and now with their podcast.

For the uninitiated, Yacht Rock is a subset of sophisticated soft rock — think Steely Dan, Toto, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins — that was sophisticated, musically, and (letting Wikipedia take if from here…) “existing between the late 1970s and early 1980s. Drawing on sources such as smooth soul, smooth jazz, R&B, funk, and disco, common stylistic traits include high-quality production, clean vocals, and a focus on light, catchy melodies. Initially used pejoratively, its name was derived from its association with the popular Southern Californian leisure.”

It’s a fun conversation, and if you’re a fan of the show/podcast, or just the music of the period, worth a listen.

TamperGate ends, Lonzo’s #NBARank, Kobe Bryant’s Jerseys and More!

Posted by on Sep 13, 2017 in Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast | 0 comments

So lose to the start of the year, with Media Day on September 25. But that doesn’t we have to wait. Behold… podcast!

We start on the end of TamperGate. How did things turn out for the Lakers? Fair or unfair? And what did Magic say about it on First Take this week? Moving on, we kick around Lonzo Ball’s #NBA Rank (and a similar exercise from Sports Illustrated). What does it mean that he’s already showing up on lists like these? Anyone from the Lakers seem under-appreciated? After that, we talk about Kobe’s jersey retirement ceremony, now officially set for December 18th.

And finally, we wrap with a lively discussion of the best song/movie combo from the 1980s.

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.”

Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, KCP, 2018, and OJ!

Posted by on Jul 22, 2017 in Opinion, Podcast |

Busy week!

After starting with the shredding of Brian’s remaining street cred (whatever remained), it was on to the breaking news of Kyrie Irving’s trade demand from the Cavs. Where could they send him, and (more importantly for the Lakers) what does this mean for LeBron James and the summer of 2018?

From there, we break down the signing of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and more importantly, the press conference announcing it, because there was a whole heck of a lot going on in there from Rob Pelinka and Magic Johnson.

Finally, Derrick Rose, yay-or-nay? And O.J.! He’s getting out. What happens next?
