Are the Lakers Tampering? Plus, Big Trades, and a Statue? Yessir!

Posted by on Aug 25, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

Big news this week… The Lakers are under investigation!

The Indiana Pacers are salty about Paul George’s departure, and believe the Lakers may have had something to do with it. Their midwestern sensibilities ruffled, Indiana demanded the league launch an investigation. We ask the big questions (starting with, “Did they do it?” moving to “Can they prove it?” and finishing with “Should tampering even matter?”). From there, it’s a breakdown of this week’s blockbuster sending Kyrie Irving to Boston. Who got what they needed from this, and how does it impact the Lakers?

Finally, with tampering in the news, we give a statue (sort of) to the guy at the center of the NBA’s last major tampering scandal… Joe Smith! Yes, the same Joe Smith who played 12 games with the Lakers in 2010-11, and averaged a robust 0.5 ppg.

Because in our world, every Laker gets a statue.

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.

Brandon Ingram… Untouchable?

Posted by on May 26, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion |

After a technical foul in our first try for this week’s podcast, we’re back with a 2.0. And people, it’s bigger, and better than the first. So you’re lucky we had to go back.

On the agenda…

  • Lonzo Ball says he won’t work out for the Celtics… but will work out for Philly.
  • Magic Johnson says Brandon Ingram is basically untouchable. Should he be?
  • Gunnar Peterson, LA’s new strength and conditioning guy!

And from there…

  • The Finals are set. Can Cleveland pull the upset?
  • What does this do for LeBron’s legacy, whether compared to Kobe (thanks for bringing it up, Scottie Pippen) or LeBron James?

And from there…

Podcast! The Lakers land at #2… so it’s Lonzo Ball, right?

Posted by on May 19, 2017 in Opinion, Podcast |

The basketball gods have smiled on the Lakers.

Or, perhaps more likely (if you think like we do), the NBA finally finished making good on “basketball reasons,” keeping the Lakers in the 2017 Draft and finally closing the book on a sordid chapter in league history.

So what do the Lakers do? Take Lonzo Ball? Trade the pick? Keep Lonzo, and trade other stuff? No matter what, the Lakers have options, and averted a disaster that would have lengthened the rebuild by at least a couple seasons, likely more.

So much to discuss…

Jeanie Buss vs. Jim Buss (and Johnny…)

Posted by on Mar 7, 2017 in Jeanie Buss, Jerry Buss, Jim Buss, Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

So, no joke, like five minutes after we finished taping last week’s show, all hell broke loose, in the form of legal drama surrounding the Buss family. But hey, it was Friday afternoon, so re-recording felt like a stretch.

But we’re back today, and there’s actually a little more to talk about now than last week, anyway. We unpack it all. How it happened and what it means. Plus, a critical discussion of where the Moody Blues fit in the birthing of what would eventually become Prog Rock.
