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.

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.

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!

Sometimes, the first few days of free agency are a tease. A big ball of underwhelming.

Not this year!

With the salary cap set to explode, money was flying faster and larger than the NBA has ever seen. People you may never have heard of have cashed in on eight figure deals. The Lakers were in the mix, throwing $64 million at center Timofey Mozgov and another $70 mil to forward Luol Deng. (Plus, they wrapped up Jordan Clarkson and Tarik Black.)

Was it money well spent? What do the signings say about the state of the franchise?

And what about Kevin Durant? Why is he going to Oakland, and does that move make Russell Westbrook a #FutureLaker?

All that and more on the new installment of the podcast…
