Podcast! Pau’s complaints, the future of Swaggy P, the NFL N-Word penalty and Harold Ramis

Posted by on Feb 27, 2014 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Kobe Bryant, MarShon Brooks, Mike D'Antoni, Mitch Kupchak, Nick Young, Pau Gasol, Podcast |

Only 24 games left this season. We promise. No give backs.

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

  • We take a look at the latest headlines. Jason Collins jerseys are in huge demand. Ray Felton is arrested on gun charges, the latest incident in a disastrous Knicks season. The NBA is considering a bigger court and a four-point line. Our thoughts?
  • After Tuesday’s loss to the Pacers, Pau Gasol issued public complaints about the team’s style of play and an overall lack of discipline. He and Mike D’Antoni have well-documented issues and will never see eye-to-eye, but are these gripes more than just a player venting against his coach? Is MDA failing to keep his players, particularly young newbies Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks, in line?
  • We introduce a brand new segment called, “Should The Lakers Bring This Guy Back Next Year?” In which we ask, “Should the Lakers bring this guy back next year?” Reasonable money and contract length assumed, of course. First up, Nick Young, who has  a player option for next season he’s widely expected not to opt. Does Swaggy P play a role in this team’s future, and will his relationship with the rather fetching rapper Iggy Azalea hinder the chances of retaining him?
  • The NFL is expected to institute a new rule penalizing players for on-field use of the N-Word. Is this a good idea? How prevalent, in our experience, is the word in the NBA workplace? Would the Association ever consider following the NFL’s lead?
  • It’s time for AAK!!! Would we rather attend our favorite band’s final concert, or our favorite team’s Game 7 with a title on the line? I share the very weird details of my worst date. And finally, we talk about our favorite movies from the recently departed Harold Ramis.

Podcast! Trade deadline reaction

Posted by on Feb 21, 2014 in Jim Buss, Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Kobe Bryant, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Lakers News, Mike D'Antoni, Mitch Kupchak, Opinion, Pau Gasol, Podcast | 4 comments

So Thursday noon has come and gone, and what did we learn? The trade deadline is but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Full disclosure: The first sentence is totally original, but most of that next part was borrowed from Macbeth. Still, it’s nonetheless fair to say Trade Deadline 2014! was a relative bust, without a whole lot of action locally or across the Association. The Lakers made their move Wednesday night, sending Steve Blake to Golden State for MarShon Brooks and Kent Bazemore. The day’s big blockbuster (relatively speaking) involved sending a B-ish player (Evan Turner) to Indiana for a once-pretty awesome wing (Danny Granger). The move could absolutely impact this year’s title chase, but overall the day was defined by Twitter waiting around for something cool to happen.

But good news! In this case, “nothing” means something. Thursday was still important for the Lakers, for different reasons. Click on the module to listen, navigating with the helpful list of talking points below…

  • Breaking down the Blake deal. Did the Lakers get anything they might be able to use going forward?
  • Thursday, Mitch Kupchak said they don’t consider the repeater tax to be a big issue. Is he being genuine? Should the Lakers be more concerned?
  • Do the Lakers overvalue their own guys? Do they know how to operate from anything but a position of great strength?
  • No first rounders and few second rounders changed hands Thursday. Stars, or the closest thing this market had to offer, generally stayed put. What does this say about today’s NBA, and how does that impact the way in which the Lakers will have to rebuild?
  • Evaluating the more significant deals. Blake to Golden State, Turner to Indy, and…, mostly that.

Finally, best wireless speakers

best drug rehabilitation
knee pain
construction management
acl surgery recovery
does the methodical, unhurried nature of Mitch Kupchak’s speaking style hurt the Lakers as the deadline gets down to the final moments? We investigate.

Ultimately, the Lakers are today more or less what they were on Tuesday, a disappointing development for those (understandably) hoping they’d be able to pick up some assets. Back to the drawing board.

Podcast! Steve Nash’s future, Jason Collins, Michael Sam, and Philip Seymour Hoffman

Posted by on Feb 13, 2014 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Mike D'Antoni, Pau Gasol, Podcast, Steve Nash | 1 comment

Who else is looking forward to the All-Star break and five full days without a Laker loss and (presumably, although no promises) a Laker injury?

Posted by on Feb 7, 2014 in Jim Buss, Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Kobe Bryant, Lakers Analysis, Magic Johnson, Mike D'Antoni, Mitch Kupchak, Opinion, Pau Gasol, Podcast, Steve Nash |

Steve Blake, Steve Nash, Jordan Farmar are back. Jodie Meeks and Nick Young are now out. The names on the injury list may change, but by and large, everything else remains the same, including a largely uninterrupted string of losses. Wish we had better news to report, but these podcasts are unfortunately based on true stories.

Podcast! Pau stays, Shawne goes, Kobe’s All-Star plans, phobias, and a new role for Jim Buss?

Posted by on Jan 9, 2014 in Jim Buss, Kobe Bryant, Lakers Analysis, Mike D'Antoni, Opinion, Pau Gasol, Podcast, Steve Nash | 1 comment

I won’t lie. These are difficult times for the Lakers. The future, whether for Pau Gasol, Kobe Bryant, or the franchise as a whole, is uncertain at best. Fans are growing restless. And the losses continue to pile up. Were it not for this podcast, the season would be downright unbearable.http://content.blubrry.com/kambrothers/Land_O_Lakers_1.8_2.0.mp3

You’re welcome.

The show can be heard by clicking on the module and a list of talking points can be seen below.

  • We take a look at the latest headlines. J.R. Smith and Shoelace-Gate. (In related news, the Knicks are now shopping Swish.) Ray Allen and Spike Lee are mulling a “He Got Game” sequel. The Clippers are reportedly considering Sasha Vujacic and Hedo Turkoglu as new roster additions. After a very productive stint with the Bulls, Andrew Bynum is on the verge of becoming a free agent.
  • Pau Gasol survived yet another round of trade rumors, this time a deal that would have sent him to Cleveland (for Bynum) in little more than a salary dump. The Lakers held out for a bigger haul. Did they overplay their hand?
  • With his contract on the verge of becoming fully guaranteed, the Lakers opted to waive Shawne Williams. We take a look at his brief time as a Laker.
  • If Kobe was back on the court just barely before the All-Star Game, would the league actually force him to participate?
  • We introduce a new segment called “Indefensible Positions,” where we each attempt to make a case for absurd scenarios involving the Lakers.
  • It’s time for AAK!!! What are our strangest phobias? What musical artist would we most like to record with? Which current or former Laker would we send to North Korea with Dennis Rodman?
