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.

So, what’s new with you?

Really? That’s it? Wow, the Lakers have had a much busier week. Magic Johnson is officially in charge of basketball operations. Mitch Kupchak and Jim Buss are out. Rob Pelinka is (almost) in. And the new crew is already making deals! What do we make of the Lou Williams trade? We break it all down in an action packed 40 minutes of nothing but talking.

Lineup Changes, and Magic’s Back!

Posted by on Feb 10, 2017 in Opinion, Podcast |

Soooooo…. Big week!

The Lakers have made significant changes in the starting lineup, which could have significant impact on the decisions that will be made this summer about basketball operations now that Magic Johnson is back in the building, which could have an impact on whether or not the rumors about a potential return for Jerry West might be true, which could have an impact on whether or not the Lakers sign Charles Oakley this offseason.

Actually, that last part isn’t true, but Oak is back in the news following Wednesday’s bizarre-as-**** melee at Madison Square Garden. All that, and why Phil Jackson is failing as team builder in New York.

Has D’Angelo Russell Lost John Q. Lakers Fan?

Posted by on Jan 24, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast | 1 comment

We’re back, and on today’s show are talkin’…

  • …the worst loss in Lakers history, at least if you measure by points.
  • …how LA’s cold streak since that 10-10 start impacts Jeanie Buss and the big decisions on basketball ops staring her in the face.
  • …whether the average Lakers fan is still fully on board with D’Angelo Russell. Because man alive, he’s a lightning rod.

And finally, why are NBA coaches so comfortable talking politics?

The Lakers at the Quarter Pole

Posted by on Dec 1, 2016 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

10-10!

Surprising, to say the least, but 20 games in, the Lakers are a .500 team hanging on the edge of the playoff ladder. To put things in perspective, last season the team’s 10th win didn’t come until February 2nd. This year? November 30. Aside from the most optimistic heart-over-head diehards, few saw this coming. But it has, so what does it mean going forward? We break it down, focusing on…

  • Nick Young’s injury. What does it do to the rotation? What if he misses a full month?
  • Brandon Ingram. His progress to this point, and whether it’s time to go all in and call the kid a future star.
  • Luke Walton. Why he’s been successful, and how a combination of coaching talent and good timing could serve the Lakers very well for a long time.

All that and… well, actually, no more. Just all that.
