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.

Lineup Changes, and Magic’s Back!

Posted by on Feb 10, 2017 in Opinion, Podcast |

Soooooo…. Big week!

The Lakers have made significant changes in the starting lineup, which could have significant impact on the decisions that will be made this summer about basketball operations now that Magic Johnson is back in the building, which could have an impact on whether or not the rumors about a potential return for Jerry West might be true, which could have an impact on whether or not the Lakers sign Charles Oakley this offseason.

Actually, that last part isn’t true, but Oak is back in the news following Wednesday’s bizarre-as-**** melee at Madison Square Garden. All that, and why Phil Jackson is failing as team builder in New York.

Podcast: Byron Scott Out, Luke Walton In…

Posted by on May 3, 2016 in Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

 

The king is dead, long live the king.

Barely a week ago, the Lakers let Byron Scott go. Technically, they chose not to pick up his option, as opposed to firing him. Technically. But before we could get around to talking about it, BAM! The Lakers went out and landed Luke Walton, the beloved former Laker and hottest name remaining on the coaching market this offseason. So … good move? We discuss.

(Spoiler alert, we’re not booing, we’re saying “Luuuuuuuuuuuke.”)

All that, plus all of your NBA headlines, including Carmelo Anthony making it abundantly clear he doesn’t want to Kurt Rambis coaching him next year, the Clippers again facing questions, and the Space Jam reboot lands its director. (Which is really just an excuse for AK to talk about The Fast and the Furious franchise.)

Plus, another peek at the Secret LaMarcus Aldridge Audio Recordings, a statue for Byron Scott, and a big week in Magic Johnson tweets!

Podcast: Kobe Bryant’s latest ETA, Magic Johnson’s criticisms, David Stern’s legacy, B-Movies

Posted by on Jan 30, 2014 in Jeanie Buss, Jim Buss, Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Kobe Bryant, Lakers Audio, Magic Johnson, Mitch Kupchak | 6 comments

The Lakers continue to lose. Kobe Bryant continues to watch games while donning black suits. Magic Johnson continues to lobby his dissatisfaction with the team. Chris Kaman continues to sit on the bench angrily growing out his beard. It’s like the movie “Groundhog Day,” except considerably less funny and the day begins with I Got a Feeling” instead of “I Got You, Babe.”

You know things have gotten bad when Cher is the preferable option.

The show can be heard by clicking on the module and below is a list of talking points. Among the highlights:

  • We take a look at the latest headlines. LaLa Anthony thinks ‘Melo will stay in New York and denies HoneyNutCheerios-Gate ever happened. Do we believe her on either count? The Memphis Grizzlies are back in the Western Conference playoff conversation. At the halfway point, who would we vote for MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, Coach of the Year, etc.?
  • Tuesday, President Obama addressed the State of the Union. Wednesday, we address the state of the Lakers. And unless he’s a diehard Celtics fan, both assessments will make John Boehner frown. As is typically the case, fans have a bone to pick with Mike D’Antoni over this mess, and the Complaint Du Jour is Ryan Kelly getting minutes at the expense of either Jordan Hill or Kaman (and their presumed extra rebounds) How much does this affect wins and losses, and does it even matter, considering this season is clearly lost?
  • A reexamination of Kobe Bryant’s knee has revealed more swelling, placing him on the shelf until, realistically speaking, late February or early March at the earliest. Assuming Bryant does take the court this season, Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak will get a very small sample size by which to evaluate where he stands as a player. How much will this affect the front office’s decisions this summer?
  • Stop us if you’ve heard this before, but Magic Johnson is publicly criticizing Jim Buss and D’Antoni. We ponder Magic’s endgame with these constant critiques, and how damaging his words could be to the organization moving forward.
  • Dr. Buss’ birthday as Tuesday, and it’s been nearly a year since his death. We examine the state of the franchise specifically through the prism of his absence.
  • On Saturday, David Stern will step down after 30 years as NBA Commissioner. How will his tenure be remembered?
  • It’s time for some AAK!!! We make Super Bowl predictions and name our favorite B-Movies.
  • Unrelated to the show (but still important), I wanted to give a heads up that we’ll be appearing again periodically on ESPNLA 710 radio. Check our twitter feed (@kambrothers) to stay in the loop.
