  1. PodKast: Lakers-Clippers preview

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With the Lakers 0-2 heading into tonight's action against the Clippers and Steve Nash looking doubtful to suit up, has this season's first crosstown battle lost some of the juice? Not from where I'm sitting. Regardless of Nash's participation, this i...

  2. 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...

  4. Mike Brown confident a full training camp will pay dividends

    Andy Kamenetzky

    There's no question the circumstances Mike Brown encountered during his first season in L.A. weren't easy. No offseason communication with players. A shortened, chaotic training camp filled with drama surrounding Chris Paul, Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom....

  5. The purple and gold butterfly effect

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Steve Nash's introductory press conference Wednesday in El Segundo featured plenty of sentiment along the lines of "I never expected this to happen." Nash, who'd previously stated his apprehension to join a heated rival, described this chapter of his...

  6. Ode to joy

    Andy Kamenetzky

    As far as livings go, "professional athlete" isn't the worst by which to make your money. For starters, said money is often ludicrously good for stars and even generous for those along the fringes. On top of that wealth, your world becomes an oyster ...

  7. Pau Gasol exit interview: A tough season that feels like goodbye

    Andy Kamenetzky

    This was no easy season for Pau Gasol, between the weight carried from a poor 2011 postseason, being traded/untraded for Chris Paul, hearing his name swirl around the rumor mill like a Hollywood Starlet in the pages of US Weekly, and a new role that ...

  8. Lakers vs. Thunder: The first of five very important games

    Andy Kamenetzky

  9. PodKast w/Ben Harper: Lakers, Kobe and the art of cover songs

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It's always fun when friend-of-the-podKast, two-time Grammy winner and die hard Laker fan Ben Harper visits the studio. We sat down for an extended conversation about the state of the Los Angeles Lakers (Ben's a little worried) and, of course, music....

  11. Lakers vs. Clippers: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Mike Brown can insist he's not worried about the Clippers. Matt Barnes and Blake Griffin can claim there's no bad blood between these teams (if not necessarily each other). And people can debate whether the Lakers and Clippers have entered a "rivalry...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Christmas Day fast approaches, along with a regular-season opener against the Chicago Bulls. It's a challenging way for the Lakers to tip off the 2011-12 campaign, as the visitors offer a plethora of questions. How will the Lakers slow down reigning ...

  13. Podkast w/Beto Duran: Kobe's wrist, wing depth, and Hall and Oate...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Like Soundgarden, the Lakers have fallen on black days since the opening of camp. Chris Paul's painfully brief tenure as a Laker. Lamar Odom's painfully abrupt exit. The Lakers' painfully one-sided loss to the Clippers in the preseason. Kobe Bryant's...

  15. Thoughts (and misgivings) about the Chris Paul deal

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Finally, at long last, the Chris Paul circus has mercifully packed it's league-owned bags and left town. After much hulabaloo, the Clippers and the Hornets/David Stern reached terms to find CP3 a new home. He, along with two future second round draft...
