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).

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.

D’Angelo Russell is a starter again! (Plus “Rest-Gate!!!)

Posted by on Mar 21, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast | 1 comment

Showtime!

In today’s episode, we break down the post-Lou work the Lakers have tried to do, gathering information to get ready for this offseason and future (potential) moves. That includes the dramatic, though apparently short-lived, experiment of having D’Angelo Russell come off the bench.

We kick that around, plus take a look at the latest controversy surrounding rest and NBA stars, plus dive deep into the growing group of NBA Flat Earth Truthers.
