Lee Jenkins on Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Lonzo Ball, and More!

Posted by on Sep 22, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

He’s the best in the business, and now he’s on our show. Lee Jenkins of Sports Illustrated joins us to talk about his new feature on Dwight Howard — well worth the read — including a dive into Howard’s time in L.A., and how his insecurity fits a larger theme we’re seeing more of in the NBA (see Durant, Kevin). From there, we kick around the future of next summer’s star free agents like LeBron James, Paul George, and Russell Westbrook. Plus, along with his thoughts on Lonzo Ball and whether anything the media or his dad can conjure might trip him up this year.

Jenkins is always insightful and thought provoking, and this conversation is no different.

Enjoy!

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.

Dave McMenamin on “Return of the King,” NBA Playoffs

Posted by on Apr 27, 2017 in Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

Fun times this week as we welcome former ESPNLA Lakers colleague-turned-Cavs-guy Dave McMenamin, who, as is often the case, has apparently done quite well after distancing himself from us.

These days, Dave doesn’t just cover the NBA for ESPN, he’s also a New York Times bestselling author. With Brian Windhorst, Dave has written the new book “Return of the King,” which documents the return of LeBron James to Cleveland and the championship season that would eventually come. It’s a great read for NBA fans, well worth the time. After, we kicked around the Cavs in this year’s playoffs, as well as a few other big postseason topics.

Enjoy! And buy the book.

So, what’s new with you?

Really? That’s it? Wow, the Lakers have had a much busier week. Magic Johnson is officially in charge of basketball operations. Mitch Kupchak and Jim Buss are out. Rob Pelinka is (almost) in. And the new crew is already making deals! What do we make of the Lou Williams trade? We break it all down in an action packed 40 minutes of nothing but talking.

Training Camp Opens, “The Luke Walton Effect,” and gefilte fish

Posted by on Sep 30, 2016 in Byron Scott, Jeanie Buss, Jim Buss, Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Luke Walton, Opinion, Podcast |

The NBA is officially underway! The Lakers, while enjoying all camp has to offer — canoeing, archery, arts and crafts, orienteering, and trying to make out with the counselors at the girls camp across the lake — are also very clearly enjoying the first days of the Luke Walton era. Like, a lot. Which isn’t to say they didn’t enjoy last season’s circus in the same way… except it kinda is.

Hopefully it lasts a while, but for the time being the players who were here last season, particularly the young ‘uns, and particularly D’Angelo Russell, have clearly taken a shine to the new regime.

We break down all the big stories from the early days of training camp, including (but not limited to)…

  • Evidence a genuine culture has the chance to take root this year.
  • How feeling empowered by his coaching staff could help Russell on the floor.
  • Why Kobe needed to retire for Walton’s approach to work.
  • The Jim Buss Timeline: Mitch Kupchak says he’s really not aware of it. Land O’Lakers Factcheckers rate that a full four Paul Pierce Wheelchairs on the lie scale. Still, while it seems reasonable to believe the Lakers won’t make the Western Conference Finals (don’t shoot the messenger), what happens to Jim Buss if the Lakers show legitimate improvement, over the course of the year? Any shot he stays? And if Jim goes, does Mitch go, too?
  • Gefilte fish.
