Brandon Ingram… Untouchable?

Posted by on May 26, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion |

After a technical foul in our first try for this week’s podcast, we’re back with a 2.0. And people, it’s bigger, and better than the first. So you’re lucky we had to go back.

On the agenda…

  • Lonzo Ball says he won’t work out for the Celtics… but will work out for Philly.
  • Magic Johnson says Brandon Ingram is basically untouchable. Should he be?
  • Gunnar Peterson, LA’s new strength and conditioning guy!

And from there…

  • The Finals are set. Can Cleveland pull the upset?
  • What does this do for LeBron’s legacy, whether compared to Kobe (thanks for bringing it up, Scottie Pippen) or LeBron James?

And from there…

How Good Is the Young Core (Compared To All the Others)?

Posted by on Apr 5, 2017 in Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast | 3 comments

The big question facing the Lakers as the season winds down (other than those related to lottery odds) centers around the young core, and determining where the Lakers need to go from here. How good are these guys, exactly? How do they compare with other young cores around the league? The answer goes a long way to determining just how far the Lakers need to go, given all the teams they need to jump to reach the top — or even the semi-top — of the Western Conference.

It was a theme running through a few big picture NBA features this week, whether talking about the best of the worst teams in the Association, or how re-do’s of the last two Drafts might look.

All that, plus big headlines (KD returning, Cleveland bickering) and a Hallmark Christmas Quiz.

Happy D’Angelo, Ingram the 6th Man, and a Statue for Metta

Posted by on Sep 23, 2016 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast | 2 comments

The Lakers are (almost) back!

And that means we are, too! With a few minor adjustments. Like a total lack of music, thanks to some licensing questions with ESPN podcasts. So rather than run afoul of the law, we’ll abide until we can find a workaround.

But thankfully, we’re still plenty able to talk hoops. And with Monday’s media day right around the corner, we tackle the big topics of conversation surrounding the purple and gold. Start with D’Angelo Russell, who hearts the new coaching staff in ways he, well, may not have hearted the previous one. So how much shade is Russell really throwing Byron Scott?

What about Luke Walton’s decision to bring Brandon Ingram off the bench? Then there are projections! ESPN has the Lakers pegged to win 24.5 games this year. Too high? Too low? Or juuuuuuust right? (Surely there’s a way to win a half game somewhere.)

Finally, the Lakers have signed Metta World Peace to one more make-good deal. Occasion enough to give him a statue! And, of course, more Secret Audio From the LaMarcus Aldridge Pitch Meeting.

Lakers Draft Brandon Ingram, Introduce Luke Walton

Posted by on Jun 24, 2016 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Luke Walton, Opinion, Podcast | 1 comment

It was a busy week in El Segundo!

Thursday, the Lakers did the expected, drafting Croatian center Ivica Zubac with the 32nd pick … and also Duke’s Brandon Ingram at #2. No big blockbusters for the purple and gold, who for the time being at least seem willing to let the young fellas grow. We break it down, along with the big deal of the day which sent Serge Ibaka to Orlando. What does that mean for Kevin Durant (and by extension, the Thunder, and by extension, the Lakers)?

From there, we talk Luke Walton, who was introduced earlier this week following Golden State’s Game 7 loss in the Finals. What were the standout moments in his first press conference as the coach of the Lakers?

All that and … well, mostly just that. But isn’t that enough?

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!
