Dining with Brandon Ingram and Free Agent Shopping

Posted by on Jun 8, 2016 in Opinion, Podcast |

It’s still the calm before the summer storm, but that doesn’t mean we can’t podcast!

In today’s edition, we look ahead to this week’s dinner/workout with presumptive #2 pick Brandon Ingram, then break down how the activities of other teams — say a rumored Jeff Teague-for-Nerlens Noel swap between the Hawks and Lakers — might impact the Lakers. And how much money exactly will the purple and gold be spending this offseason?

All that, plus a statue for Andrew Bynum, more secret audio from the disastrous LaMarcus Aldridge pitch meeting, and more (including Olympics talk, revelations about Blake Griffin’s Kia dunk, and one of your more unconventional $200 million home sales).

Enjoy!

PODCAST! Who replaces Mike D’Antoni? K.D., Kobe Bryant, and hoops psychology, plus Sterlings!

Posted by on May 10, 2014 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Kobe Bryant, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Mike D'Antoni, Opinion, Podcast | 2 comments

The NBA has been a busy place since we last recorded, and not just because of the playoffs. Donald Sterling has been banished by the NBA, and Mike D’Antoni banished himself, perhaps before the Lakers could do it for him. Meanwhile, Kevin Durant not only set the Mother’s Day bar at an impossibly high level for the rest of us with his Instant Classic MVP speech, he seemed to reveal a changing dynamic in the nature of NBA “alpha dogs.”

So plenty to talk about, for sure. Click on the module to listen, and use these handy talking points as a guide:

  • We kick off our headlines with all things Sterling. First, in another recording, this time picked up by Radar Online, Donald Sterling says he’s not a racist. He also says he said that stuff in the TMZ tape because he wanted to “play” with V. Stiviano.  And we don’t mean checkers. (Ewww….) Not to be outdone, Shelly Sterling made it clear she’s not letting go of the team without a fight. Is this a money grab or a problem that will fester for the NBA going forward?
  • Andrew Bynum is officially done for the year. Is he also done for good?
  • D’Antoni is gone. Why picking a replacement isn’t simply a matter of finding a coach with an attractive style of play. Can the Lakers really identify the best candidate when the roster is nearly guaranteed to turn over substantially in each of the next three seasons?
  • Has the nature of the NBA alpha dog changed? Is The Kobe Way the only way? What does the Kobification of L.A. over the last (almost) two decades mean for the superstar who follows Bryant with the Lakers?
  • AAK! We share our ultimate podcast guests, living and dead.

Steve Blake, Steve Nash, Jordan Farmar are back. Jodie Meeks and Nick Young are now out. The names on the injury list may change, but by and large, everything else remains the same, including a largely uninterrupted string of losses. Wish we had better news to report, but these podcasts are unfortunately based on true stories.

Podcast! Injured point guards, Pau Gasol on the block, exotic pets, glazed donut faces

Posted by on Jan 6, 2014 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Kendall Marshall, Kobe Bryant, Lakers Audio, Mike D'Antoni, Podcast | 1 comment

Friday’s win over Utah notwithstanding, these are indeed dark days of late for the Lakers. Point guards are dropping like flies. Pau Gasol’s future is yet again unstable. Mike D’Antoni remains unpopular as ever. And relief doesn’t appear anywhere on the horizon. Thankfully, there is a certain podcast to get fans through these tough times, the same one that got everyone through the Kwame-Smush era.
We’re here for you, people!

The show can be heard by clicking the module above, and a list of talking points can be found below. Among the highlights:

  • We take a look at the latest headlines. Stan Van Gundy refers to the Nets as a “bush league” operation. ‘Melo creates an awesome insult. J.R. Smith reacts to the Knicks cutting his brother. Andre Miller and Brian Shaw aren’t besties.
  • To say the least, the Lakers have encountered a rocky patch. Does January present potential relief, or add depth to the rabbit hole?
  • The Lakers’ list of healthy point guards now begins and ends with Kendall Marshall, and the effect of so few available 1′s has been devastating on several counts.
  • With the team skidding, we’ve heard cries from fans that Mike D’Antoni should be shown the door ASAP. As I explained in a recent post, that would be a terrible idea.
  • Stop us if you’ve heard this before, but Pau Gasol is again involved in trade rumors, this time in exchange for a certain-to-be-waived Andrew Bynum, huge financial savings and (maybe) a young player or a pick. Would this be a good deal for the Lakers? What does it say about Gasol’s trade value? Big picture, have the last three seasons, and this one particularly, forever tainted Pau’s purple and gold legacy?
  • It’s time for AAK!!! Which Laker, former or current, would be the best sitcom star? Would we rather be an ugly millionaire or a poor, handsome ladies man? Which exotic pet would either of us purchase? Why is Kareem never mentioned as the GOAT?
