    Andy Kamenetzky

    There are occasionally periods when the news cycle doesn't provide us much in the way of juicy topics for the podKast. Safe to say, this isn't one of those periods. Plenty to chop up, with Mike Brown out, Mike D'Antoni in, and Phil Jackson -- along w...

  2. Lakers vs. Spurs: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Well, the Lakers have a new coach in place, but the Bernie Bickerstaff era will not yet go quietly into the night. Happily for those (like me) who enjoy pressers with a hilariously grumpy coach who doesn't hide any disdain for the comical situation h...

  3. Why Mike D'Antoni was the right choice

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Give the Lakers credit. They never run out of ways to keep the world guessing. One day after giving Mike Brown a public vote of confidence, they send the guy packing. And then upon prepping everyone for the "Godfather Part III" installment of Phil Ja...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    I get to keep living in Los Angeles! Sweet!!! After a tortuous start to the season, the Los Angeles Lakers finally recorded their first win. Obviously, the caliber of opponent does matter, and the Detroit Pistons are in fact a horrible t...

  8. Lakers vs. Mavericks: What to Watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With an 0-8 preseason in the books, Kobe Bryant nursing a foot injury and training camp a bust as a platform for building chemistry, it would be difficult to claim the new-look Lakers are kicking off the games that count on a high note. Fortunately, ...

  9. Lakers at Clippers: What can we learn?

    Andy Kamenetzky

    As a rule of thumb, preseason games aren't used to predict regular season and playoff success. A strong October forecasts little about April-June, just as a weak October doesn't mean a struggle awaits. (Except in the case of the Bobcats, whose curren...

    LOS ANGELES -- Yes, the Los Angeles Lakers remain 0-for-the preseason, but all defeats are not created equally. With Dwight Howard's long-awaited debut finally in the books, the vision of what this team may look like moving forward became more clear....

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Per Ramona Shelburne, the Lakers center could make his preseason debut this evening at Staples Center against the Kings, assuming Gary "Father" Vitti gives the final thumbs up. At Sunday's shootaround, coach Mike Brown sounded optimistic about Howard...

  13. The Forum: Mike Brown and minutes

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Last season, Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol logged were among the league leaders for minutes, and the toll was evident. This season, Mike Brown's roster is better and deeper, but even more steeped in NBA mileage. Will Brown make a conscious effort to keep...

  14. The Forum: Preseason concerns

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The Lakers' 0-4 preseason record is arguably meaningless, but Dwight Howard has yet to play and Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill have missed games, which interrupts continuity and muddies the picture for Mike Brown while creating a rotation. Th...

  15. Celtics to sign Leandro Barbosa ... and that's fine.

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Why a headline in this neck of the woods regarding news about the enemy? Because Los Angeles Lakers fans have inquired throughout the offseason about the Brazilian Blur landing in L.A. A lot. After all, Leandro Barbosa is a "name," and fans are...
