  1. 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...

  2. How the Lakers match up: San Antonio Spurs

    Andy Kamenetzky

    For the past several seasons, the San Antonio Spurs have served as basketball's version of Jason Voorhees: They cannot be killed. Since about 2008, fans and media (I've been as guilty as anybody) have cited their long teeth, declining athleticism and...

  3. Podkast: The Lakers as the playoffs approach

    Andy Kamenetzky

    As the popular saying goes, timing is everything. When we recorded this podcast Friday afternoon ahead of the impending blowout loss to the Spurs, the Lakers looked, generally speaking, like a team trending in the right direction with the postseason ...

  4. Lakers at Spurs: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    I had looked forward to these three April games between the Lakers and Spurs with great anticipation. I thought they'd be an instructive gauge of the prospects of a deep playoff run for the Lakers. But the results so far have been anticlimactic. Two...

  5. 5 Questions about Kobe Bryant's return

    Andy Kamenetzky

    After seven games, a few surprisingly strong wins, and one semi-predictable shellacking, Kobe Bryant may finally be donning a Laker uni instead of one of those impeccably tailored, mega-expensive suits. On Friday, the Lakers will engage in a rubber m...

  6. Has Steve Blake rediscovered his game?

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Over the last week, Lakers headlines have been dominated by issues like Kobe Bryant's shin, otherworldly rebounding from Andrew Bynum, a string of quality performances from Metta World Peace, and the implications of a 20-point loss to Phoenix and a 1...

  7. The Forum: Lakers vs. Spurs

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With today marking the first of three important games against San Antonio, it was only natural we'd get together with Dave McMenamin to break down the matchups. This episode was shot last Thursday, well before Kobe Bryant began missing games with his...

  8. Lakers at Spurs: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    On several occasions, I've described this game as the start of a quasi-playoff series housed inside the regular season. Between today and April 20, the Lakers and Spurs play three times, which creates familiarity and tension while allowing coaches to...

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

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The Lakers' 2012 season can essentially be divided into two parts: "Pre-Ramon Sessions," when everyone wondered whether the CP3-less Lakers were capable of surviving more than a round or two in the playoffs without a notable upgrade at the point. (Fo...

  10. Metta World Peace thinks he could have been Kobe's rival

    Andy Kamenetzky

    In November, I wrote about how Kobe Bryant's never had a true rival over the course of his career. I'm not talking "Magic-Bird 2.0," but rather a universally acknowledged rival of any kind. There's nobody linked to Kobe, whether through meaningful he...

  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...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Brian provided the postgame analysis. Here are some talkies. Not surprisingly, locker room conversation centered largely around Andrew Bynum's in-game knee injury. As Derek Fisher (among other players) noted, Drew's situation was tough to compartm...

  16. Lakers vs. Spurs: What to watch with 48 Minutes of Hell

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Two weeks ago, this appeared like a collision course for all the marbles. Upon winning 17 of 18 after the All-Star break, the Lakers were poised to snatch the Western Conference's #1 seed away from the Spurs, who'd entered a mini-free fall. But the t...
