  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...

  3. 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....

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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, ...

  6. 2011-2012 report card: Metta World Peace

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It was an interesting season for Metta World Peace. (Is there any other kind?) The campaign began with a visibly/admittedly overweight MWP tapped to pick up where his close friend Lamar Odom left off: The bench Kahuna. Having watched Metta spend two ...

  7. Lakers vs. Mavericks: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    I've said it many times. In a season in which consistency has been as rare as a four-leaf clover discovered on top of a copy of Superman No. 1, there's been one solid trend for the Lakers. Opponents regarded with contempt on a personal level receive ...

  8. The Bench, the Kobe-Sessions backcourt, defense: Lakers practice ...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Last season, even with eventual 6MOY Lamar Odom leading the way, the most reliable element offered by the Lakers' bench was unreliability. With LO in Dallas, the bench predictably floundered mos...

  9. Lakers at Mavericks: What to watch with ESPN Dallas

    Andy Kamenetzky

    For the Lakers, a two-game losing streak threatens to dampen the good vibes since the acquisition of new point guard Ramon Sessions, plus swelling hopes for home-court advantage throughout much of the playoffs. For the Mavericks, a four-game winning ...

  10. Lakers-Mavs: What to watch with ESPN Dallas

    Andy Kamenetzky

    When last we saw these teams, on MLK Day, an "NBA Finals Game 7" atmosphere was anticipated. After all, it was the first meeting between the teams since the eventual champion Mavericks turned the Lakers' three-peat run into a car crash. What we got ...

  11. 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...

  12. Kobe and Lakers assists go hand in hand, one way or another

    Andy Kamenetzky

    All season, admiration and concern has been expressed by fans and media about the burden on Kobe Bryant's shoulders for Lakers' offense functioning to the degree that it has. For some (like me), his exceptionally high usage rate raises concerns about...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Brian and I have spent a lot of time recently debating the likelihood of Dwight Howard getting traded, whether to the Lakers or otherwise. I think he will be. Brian doesn't. However, we do agree if Howard relocates before the deadline, it'll come dow...

  14. Lakers-Pacers Lakers Late Night replay, plus postgame videos

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Whatever ails the Lakers apparently won't be automatically solved by home cooking. Sunday's 98-96 loss to the Pacers marks the third defeat in the row, and their fourth in five recent tries against playoff caliber teams. That ain't good. We tackled s...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Not quite a true return to the scene of the crime, since the Lakers officially surrendered their reign as back-to-back champions after a blowout loss in Dallas. But it's nonetheless a rematch and, for the Lakers, one with bitter feelings attached. Bo...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    In the time passed between the day this show was recorded (Thursday) and the day of this posting, the Lakers collected a win (against Cleveland) a loss (against the Clips). And in each game, Kobe Bryant scored exactly 42 points. The more things chang...
