So, what’s new with you?

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.

Has D’Angelo Russell Lost John Q. Lakers Fan?

Posted by on Jan 24, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast | 1 comment

We’re back, and on today’s show are talkin’…

  • …the worst loss in Lakers history, at least if you measure by points.
  • …how LA’s cold streak since that 10-10 start impacts Jeanie Buss and the big decisions on basketball ops staring her in the face.
  • …whether the average Lakers fan is still fully on board with D’Angelo Russell. Because man alive, he’s a lightning rod.

And finally, why are NBA coaches so comfortable talking politics?

Training Camp Opens, “The Luke Walton Effect,” and gefilte fish

Posted by on Sep 30, 2016 in Byron Scott, Jeanie Buss, Jim Buss, Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Luke Walton, Opinion, Podcast |

The NBA is officially underway! The Lakers, while enjoying all camp has to offer — canoeing, archery, arts and crafts, orienteering, and trying to make out with the counselors at the girls camp across the lake — are also very clearly enjoying the first days of the Luke Walton era. Like, a lot. Which isn’t to say they didn’t enjoy last season’s circus in the same way… except it kinda is.

Hopefully it lasts a while, but for the time being the players who were here last season, particularly the young ‘uns, and particularly D’Angelo Russell, have clearly taken a shine to the new regime.

We break down all the big stories from the early days of training camp, including (but not limited to)…

  • Evidence a genuine culture has the chance to take root this year.
  • How feeling empowered by his coaching staff could help Russell on the floor.
  • Why Kobe needed to retire for Walton’s approach to work.
  • The Jim Buss Timeline: Mitch Kupchak says he’s really not aware of it. Land O’Lakers Factcheckers rate that a full four Paul Pierce Wheelchairs on the lie scale. Still, while it seems reasonable to believe the Lakers won’t make the Western Conference Finals (don’t shoot the messenger), what happens to Jim Buss if the Lakers show legitimate improvement, over the course of the year? Any shot he stays? And if Jim goes, does Mitch go, too?
  • Gefilte fish.

Free Agency: Durant and Mozgov and Deng (oh my!)

Posted by on Jul 6, 2016 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast | 3 comments

Sometimes, the first few days of free agency are a tease. A big ball of underwhelming.

Not this year!

With the salary cap set to explode, money was flying faster and larger than the NBA has ever seen. People you may never have heard of have cashed in on eight figure deals. The Lakers were in the mix, throwing $64 million at center Timofey Mozgov and another $70 mil to forward Luol Deng. (Plus, they wrapped up Jordan Clarkson and Tarik Black.)

Was it money well spent? What do the signings say about the state of the franchise?

And what about Kevin Durant? Why is he going to Oakland, and does that move make Russell Westbrook a #FutureLaker?

All that and more on the new installment of the podcast…
