New Days for the Lakers, Melo in OKC, and Protesting Players?

Posted by on Sep 28, 2017 in Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion |

It’s here! The season is here!

For starters, there really is a brand new feel to things in El Segundo, as the Lakers opened up their new facility earlier this week. It’s swanky. So things kicked off as they have in recent seasons, with an emphasis on D. Can the Lakers fix it? Is the best path to doing so… on offense? What about Jordan Clarkson’s 6MOY prospects… or even his prospects of staying on the team all season. Finally, Larry Nance is a confident man, these days. What does that mean?

Nationally, Carmelo is a Thunder. (This is why teams should end in s.) Wade is a Cav. What does this mean for them, and more importantly, for the Lakers and their Summer of ’18? Finally, what will the NBA look like this season from a social justice standpoint? Do the NFL-style protests continue on the hardwood?

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

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

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.

Lonzo Ball vs. ?, Golden State vs. Everyone, Jerry West vs. the Lakers

Posted by on Jun 16, 2017 in Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Magic Johnson, Opinion, Podcast | 2 comments

Those are the big themes this week, with the Finals complete and the Draft a week away.

We start on the Finals, and the fallout from Golden State’s dominant win over Cleveland, despite a historic performance from LeBron James and excellent work from Kyrie Irving. They, like the rest of the league, weren’t close. So what does that mean for the NBA, and specifically rebuilding teams like the Lakers?

From there, we look at the Draft. Plenty of smoke out there indicating the Lakers could pass on Lonzo Ball for Josh Jackson. Should they? What about a trade?

Finally, The Logo is back in Los Angeles, but (at least in the minds of many Lakers fans) working for the wrong squad. How upset should Lakers fans be?

And a reminder — we’ll be hosting ESPNLA’s post-Draft coverage from the facility in El Segundo on Thursday night, starting at 7 pm and running until we’re done. Given how much could be going on that night, we could be in for a long, intriguing show! Hope you can tune in.

Brian Cox on “Churchill,” great directors, fake cigars, and more

Posted by on Jun 1, 2017 in Podcast, Q & A |

Brian Cox as Winston Churchill

Brian Cox as Winston Churchill

Very excited to welcome Brian Cox to the show this week. The veteran actor’s credits include Manhunter (where he played Hannibal Lecter five years before Anthony Hopkins), Rushmore, Braveheart, the first two Bourne movies, Adaptation, and a lot more. (Seriously, a lot.)

His new film is Churchill, in which Cox plays… wait for it… Winston Churchill. Specifically, Churchill just before Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of German-occupied France in June of 1944. It opens Friday.

We talk about that performance, his life in Hollywood, what makes a great director, and more. (Including some bad news for people looking to eat well on a British film set.)

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…

And from there…
