Playoffs, Baby! Gearing Up For a Crazy Summer

Posted by on May 19, 2018 in Opinion, Podcast | 0 comments

The Conference Finals are here, and in some ways are more interesting thanks to what happens after them, rather than during. What if Houston, now tied 1-1, goes down quickly from here on? What if the Celtics beat the Cavs (as we both think will happen)? Does that mean LeBron is gone? To Houston? To L.A. ? Could Boston, stacked with too many good players, trade Kyrie?

And what about that Houston/GSW series? Did “adjustments” happen? Or did Houston just do Houston stuff better? Are there any adjustments good enough to get Cleveland through to the Finals?

We kick around all this, plus talk a little Boogie Cousins. Is he doing this free agency thing right?

Podcast: Schedules, Expectations, Political Athletes, and VH1

Posted by on Aug 18, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

This week…

The Lakers schedule is out. What’s interesting? Start with the national TV schedule, for one. So how does all that air time impact Lonzo Ball’s ROY hopes, and how do Lonzo Ball’s ROY hopes impact the Lakers 2018 plan? From there, we look at D’Angelo Russell’s recent comments about the trade, and a big week for basketball players getting political with Kevin Durant and LeBron James both weighing in on the President.

And from there, we go deep into great teen movies, and celebrate the 20th anniversary of VH1′s “Behind the Music.”

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.

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 construction company
alcohol withdrawal
construction jobs
hd projector
best wireless speakers
lower back pain relief
partial knee replacement
outpatient drug treatment
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.
