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.”

Jason Mitchell on “Detroit,” being Eazy-E, and flying a chopper

Posted by on Jul 27, 2017 in Podcast |

Had a chance this week to speak with Jason Mitchell, who played Eazy-E in “Straight Outta Compton,” and now has a critical role in Kathryn Bigelow’s “Detroit,” which opens in limited release this weekend and wide next Friday. I’ve had a chance to see the film, which centers around three murders at the Algiers Hotel during the unrest in Detroit in 1967. I’d never heard of the Algiers Hotel, and the story is incredibly powerful, and powerfully told.

Worth seeing when you can, and it’s worth listening to Mitchell talk about the experience of making the film, and how his role in “Straight Outta Compton” informed his research.

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?
