    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. The Forum: Mike D'Antoni

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The Lakers have a new coach and it's not the guy most people expected and even chanted for at Staples Center. Mike D'Antoni is in. Phil Jackson is passed over. We grade the hire....

  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. Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard postgame videos and more

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Watching the following videos of Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard after Friday's 101-77 win over the Golden State Warriors, a few things are abundantly clear. 1) Mike Brown's dismissal created a very emotionally draining set of circumstances for his ...

  5. 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'...

  6. Rapid Reaction, Game 6: Nuggets 113, Lakers 96

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Throughout his coaching career, Phil Jackson was famous for "never" calling timeouts to stop a run. And while I've always felt this reputation was somewhat exaggerated -- his infamous (and ultimately backfired) gaffe during Game 4 in 2009 against Hou...

  8. The second half: Seven things to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    AP Photos Could any of these folks be wearing purple and gold soon? Ever since the Lakers were swept out of the 2011 playoffs and Phil Jackson waved goodbye, questions have swirled like a tornado on a Red Bull high. Does a Bryant-Gasol-Bynum-Odom c...

  9. Lakers at Timberwolves: What to watch, with A Wolf Among Wolves

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Should the Lakers drop tonight's contest in Minnesota -- certainly a believable outcome, given the debacle in Milwaukee -- it'll be doubly disconcerting because of the story within the story. The Lakers are a team in transition. From Phil Jackson to ...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Monday, I shared how, despite being competitively wired in a way that flirts with insanity, Kobe Bryant isn't looking forward to a potential mano y' mano with former teammate and current Phoenix Sun Shannon Brown. Kobe took Shannon under his wing fro...

  12. Gauging how the Lakers' offense might look under Mike Brown

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With the lockout now ended, we can actually examine questions beyond, "When will we see basketball again?" One topic, of course, is how the Lakers' offense will run under new coach Mike Brown. Since October 2005, we've seen this Lakers core run the t...

  13. The Forum: NBA stars and lockout negotiations

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The Triangle is no more. Behold The Forum!!! It's a brand new title -- Phil Jackson is not walking through that door, after all -- but the presentation and cast of characters remains the same. Unfortunately, the show also continues to revolve arou...

  14. The Triangle: Tex Winter, the Triangle, Kobe and MJ

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Check out my discussion with Dave McMenamin and Ramona Shelburne about Tex Winter's absurdly long wait to enter the Hall of Fame, and the mutual success enjoyed by Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan in the triangle. It's the perfect complement to a po...

  16. Kobe Bryant offers no hints on Mike Brown

    For Kobe Bryant, Tuesday was a day of celebration and, from a myopic purple and gold viewpoint, uncertainty. He and Vanessa Bryant announced today their launching of The Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation, a non-profit organization that will ...
