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.

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.

Early Season Surprises, and “The Walking Dead”

Posted by on Nov 3, 2016 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast | 1 comment

So in this episode, we talk about early season surprises for the Lakers. We also talk about “The Walking Dead.”

And the best news for Lakers fans? The two conversations are totally unrelated! What a nice change from the last couple seasons!

We kick things off with a Warriors-themed news segment, talking about LeBron’s Halloween troll, K.D.’s continuing need to explain his relationship with Russ, and Damian Lillard’s assessment of Golden State’s defense sans Andrew Bogut. From there, it’s into the early part of the Lakers season. All in all, very encouraging… and keep in mind we recorded before Wednesday’s win in Atlanta. Is Julius Randle’s hot start sustainable? Does Nick Young stay in the starting lineup? What looks different about the team at large? Can Luol Deng gain some consistency?

Finally, we bring back AAK! Ask a Kamenetzky. This week’s theme? “The Walking Dead.”

As always, thanks for listening.

Nick Young the Hero, Randle’s Upside, R&R HOF, and Kwame!

Posted by on Oct 21, 2016 in Julius Randle, Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Lou Williams, Luke Walton | 2 comments

The Lakers (and every other NBA team) are just about ready to kick off the 2016-17 season. Sweet! So what to watch for?

After the big headlines of the day, including stories of Melo-as-activist and an admission from Kevin Durant about what motivated his move to Golden State — we break down this year’s NBA.com GM Survey. What are the surprises? What do GM’s say about the Lakers, and Luke Walton?

From there… it’s Nick Young. Because he’s the most surprising story of training camp, and it’s really not close. After, we take a look at Julius Randle, probably the most “controversial” Lakers young ‘un, insofar as future projections are concerned. How good to opposing scouts think he is?

Finally, we cap this week’s episode with our yearly look at the newest nominees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame… and hand out a statue to Kwame Brown!

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!
