  1. The Forum: The State of the Lakers

    Andy Kamenetzky

  2. PodKast: The Mikes, PJ and Bernie

    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...

  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...

  4. A lot can happen over five years

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With Lakers Media Day approaching Monday, it dawned on me how Oct. 1, 2012, doesn't just mark the official launch of training camp and the 2012-2013 season. It also marks the five-year anniversary of the Media Day following Kobe Bryant's "radio tour....

  5. The Forum: Additional free agent options

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It's safe to say the offseason goal of bolstering the Lakers roster has been met ... and then some. Still, neither front office nor fans are ever truly satisfied, and players like Leandro Barbosa and Kenyon Martin, among others, remain unemployed. We...

  6. The 2013 Lakers aren't the 2004 Lakers

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Before a "big three" became a requisite for NBA teams establishing credentials as serious contenders, it wasn't too long ago that a splashy big four graced the Association. It was assembled during the summer of 2003, when Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'...

  7. A purple-and-gold crossroads for Kobe and the Lakers?

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Even for fans harking back to the days of West, Baylor and Wilt, it's probably hard to think about the Lakers without Kobe Bryant. Next season will be his 17th with the franchise, the longest any player has donned a Lakers uniform. During this time, ...

  9. The Forum: Offseason moves

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The Lakers want to make big offseason changes, but limited trade assets and no cap space makes "how" the $1,000,000 question. I break down potential approaches with Kevin Arnovitz and Dave McMenamin....

  10. A purple and gold guide to rooting in the Finals

    Andy Kamenetzky

    For any Lakers fan, any NBA finals without the purple and gold is by definition a disappointing series. The Lakers are a franchise that openly cries "championship or bust," and that standard has been enthusiastically adopted by the faithful. Thus, be...

  11. 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 ...

  12. The Jim Buss Project

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Jim Buss appeared Friday on 710 ESPN's Mason and Ireland Show for an exceedingly rare interview, done by his own admission to help fans learn more about who he is. Listening to him, I suddenly thought about how 13 years have passed since The Blair Wi...

  13. The Lakers call a 'players only' meeting: Good idea

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Despite Monday's one-sided win over the Blazers, ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard reports a players only meeting was called afterward by Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher. More often than not, such pow-wows reflects signs of trouble, and last night's w...

  14. Lakers-Bulls blog exchange with ESPN Chicago's Nick Friedell

    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 ...

  15. The Forum: Are the Lakers in decline?

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The direction of the Lakers is being questioned by everyone from fans to media to Kobe Bean Bryant himself. Whether because of the new CBA less friendly to high-spending franchises, Lamar Odom's abrupt trade or Jim Buss' increasing power, there's a n...

  16. Countdown to Christmas: The dominant storyline

    Andy Kamenetzky

    To steal a line from "Blazing Saddles," what in the wide, wide world of sports is going on here? Seriously, can anybody get a bead on just what the heck is happening right now with the Lakers? Because I certainly can't, and more important, neither...
