Podcast! In praise of D’Angelo Russell, a look at free agency, and interviews that should happen

Posted by on Jun 27, 2015 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Mitch Kupchak, Opinion, Podcast | 1 comment

Big or small? Big or small? Big or small?

That was the question in the weeks leading up to Thursday’s NBA Draft, and in the end the Lakers surprised a bunch of people — and royally screwed the Philadelphia 76ers — by selecting Ohio State point guard D’Angelo Russell with the second pick.

Good idea? We think so, break down why, and what about Russell appealed to the Lakers when push came to shove.

Plus, Larry Nance Jr. at 27 (and a most regrettable social media moment), Anthony Brown and 34, and what the new stable of Lakers means for their free agent search going forward. Mitch Kupchak says they’ll look to bolster the frontcourt. Does that mean LaMarcus Aldridge? Greg Monroe? Kevin Love?

Plus, Mitch interviews Robin Lopez!!!*

Podcast!!! Byron, Jim, Jeanie, and Mitch get ranked, Durant and Westbrook’s future, NFL and domestic violence, and “Final Four” badasses

Posted by on Mar 31, 2015 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

We’re back!

It’s a busy hour-plus, starting with a less-than-stellar evaluation of the Lakers’ front office, including hoops execs, ownership, and head coach. Do the Lakers deserve the scorn of ESPN’s Forecast rankings? From there, it’s a look around the league, a check on two of the NFL’s more notorious names, big TV news, and AAK!

Among the talking points…

  • LeBron James isn’t just one of the NBA’s great leaders… he’s among the best in the world, according to Fortune.
  • Durant and Westbrook. One out for the year, one putting up MVP numbers. What does this mean for OKC, and maybe the Lakers?
  • After seventeen years and zero requests, NBC is bringing back the sitcom “Coach.” You’re asking “Why?” So are we.
  • Our “Person of Interest” is dubiously shared this show by Greg Hardy and Ray McDonald, two NFL players mired in domestic violence
  • AAK! Final four themed.  “Final Four” cinematic badasses. “Final Four” actors. (And even with all my honorable mentions, AK managed to forget Bill Murray on that list, for which he’ll never forgive himself.)  “Final Four” condiments. “Final Four” non-family member ‘Simpsons’ characters.
  • Recommended listening includes three Marc Maron podcasts, and a Sam Simon/Barack Obama interview. And here’s a link to our ESPN podcast with actor Danny Trejo (“Machete,” “Desperado,” “Heat”), in which we cover his incredible career, prison boxing, general badassery, and so much more.

Podcast: Kobe Bryant and postgame rhetoric, untimely slides, and D.J. Mbenga stories

Those happy days when it looked like the Lakers might actually climb up the Western Conference playoff ladder and even (gasp!) make a little noise come the postseason are … well, if not gone are, in the parlance of seldom acknowledged Pink Floyd albums, Obscured By Clouds.

Now, having lost three straight including Monday”s not-nearly-as-close-as-the-final-score-indicates game against the Warriors in Oakland, the Lakers have lost touch with Golden State and Houston, and are just trying to hang on to the eighth spot. And they have some company.

With that backdrop, we sat down Tuesday afternoon to record the newest Kamenetzky Brothers Land O”Lakers Podcast (before the news about Metta World Peace”s lateral meniscus tear, just as an FYI). Among the talking points:

  • Why aren”t bulletin board material for the Lakers, but reflect bigger problems for the Lakers heading into the postseason … assuming they get there.
  • Speaking of which, will they?
  • After Monday”s loss, Kobe Bryant took the action hero, steely approach when asked if he was concerned about L.A.”s shrinking cushion in the playoff race. “I”m terrified,” he said. “Do I look terrified? Not at all.” Lest you think his question was rhetorical. Are zen calm and unshakable confidence the right approach at this point? If he”s saying the right stuff, what else ought Kobe be doing?
  • Finally, we take a comment from the Facebook Mailbag that most Lakers fans certainly identify with, and I share a conversation with V.O.T.L.* John Ireland following Friday”s loss encapsulating the ways in which this season has gone very wrong for the Lakers.

Finally, one more mention for this piece Andy put together for Red Bull Media House, on OKC”s Nick Collison”s evolution into the consummate role player.

*Voice of the Lakers.

Podcast: Kobe Bryant's ankle, Pau Gasol's return, the whitest of all musicians

Posted by on Mar 16, 2013 in Dwight Howard, Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Steve Nash | 7 comments

As if Friday's massive, inspiring 99-93 road win over the Pacers — secured largely without the services of a hobbled Kobe Bryant and with Dwight Howard often in foul trouble –  wasn't enough to put everyone's weekend in a festive mood, guess what else you have to celebrate?

That's right! Ear candy!!!

On the heels of what Metta World Peace quite reasonably deemed “the biggest win of the season so far,” treat construction careers
construction management
drug addiction
hd projector
ankle injury
plantar fasciitis treatment
opiate addiction

yourself to some festive Lakers chatter. Below is a list of talking points.

  • While it remains to be seen just how long it'll take for Kobe's ankle to truly heal up, that he was able to even give it a brief try against Indiana feels like a good sign for the stretch run of the regular season. With the threat of an extended absence low — while Kobe couldn't finish Friday's game, he was able to at least give it a go — we were able to focus on the lighter side of the injury, such as the ways Kobe will exact revenge on Dahntay Jones and the masterful way in which The Mamba milked the drama to further his legend even more.
  • Brian shares his dislike for Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier.
  • With Pau Gasol is slated to return soon, perhaps as early as Monday in Phoenix. We discuss the potential effect of his presence on the court and potential complications integrating him back into the mix.
  • L.A. Weekly recently ran a fun series of music-related lists, and we decided to dive into one of the quirkier categories: The top 20 whitest musicians of all-time. Folks like Moby, Celine Dion and Vampire Weekend predictably pop up. Plus, Brian tells the story of how he met Eric Clapton in a laundromat!

All that … and more! on the newest edition of the Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast.
