Lonzo Ball, LeBron James, and Star Wars

Posted by on Dec 16, 2017 in Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Podcast | 0 comments

The Lakers finished their road trip with a 2-2 record and four competitive games, a strong showing by any fair standard. Of course, the last of the group — a trip to Cleveland for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and the rest of L.A.’s traveling tribute to potential and hope — was the most significant. Lonzo and LeBron James on the same court, all eyes on them.

Everyone performed well. Lonzo was strong, Ingram balled out, and LBJ seemed to appreciate the talent. So he’s coming, right? We discuss.

(And don’t look now, but Lonzo’s FG% was about 40 on the roadie. Not brilliant, but a significant improvement. We talk about the impact that type of output would have were he to sustain it going forward.)

Finally, Star Wars. You heard? A new one is out! We deconstruct 40 years of Star Wars characters, then ask an important question: How good really is this franchise, from a movie making standpoint?

Lonzo’s Slump, Luke’s Rotations, and Trade Machine Fun!

Posted by on Nov 30, 2017 in Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Lakers statistics, Opinion, Podcast |

It’s podcast day!

We kick things off talking, as any Lakers analyst must do (by law), Lonzo Ball. So the shooting thing… does it get better? And what happens if it doesn’t? The natives are getting restless, if response on postgame shows and social media are any indication. Also generating angst among the natives are Luke Walton’s rotation choices. So what mistakes is he making, and what’s beyond his control? Finally, why is it the Lakers seem to play down to the competition?

Finally, we take advantage of the turmoil in Memphis to crank up the Marc Gasol Trade Machine (with a dose of DeAndre Jordan thrown in for fun).

New Days for the Lakers, Melo in OKC, and Protesting Players?

Posted by on Sep 28, 2017 in Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion |

It’s here! The season is here!

For starters, there really is a brand new feel to things in El Segundo, as the Lakers opened up their new facility earlier this week. It’s swanky. So things kicked off as they have in recent seasons, with an emphasis on D. Can the Lakers fix it? Is the best path to doing so… on offense? What about Jordan Clarkson’s 6MOY prospects… or even his prospects of staying on the team all season. Finally, Larry Nance is a confident man, these days. What does that mean?

Nationally, Carmelo is a Thunder. (This is why teams should end in s.) Wade is a Cav. What does this mean for them, and more importantly, for the Lakers and their Summer of ’18? Finally, what will the NBA look like this season from a social justice standpoint? Do the NFL-style protests continue on the hardwood?

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!

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.”
