    Andy Kamenetzky

  3. 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...

  4. Players to disband union, "nuclear winter" looms

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Good times in New York on Monday, as Derek Fisher took the stage among a sea of players (including Kobe Bryant) and announced the latest move. The newest proposal from the NBA has been rejected, and convinced the league isn't/hasn't ever been negotia...

  5. Players to mull over revised league offer

    Andy Kamenetzky

    And that's how the evening ended Thursday in New York. No deal in place, but Derek Fisher and Billy Hunter have something definitive to present to team reps on Monday or Tuesday. In theory, were the deal accepted on both sides -- Stern expressed conf...

  6. The lockout just got real

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Up until now, the NBA lockout has largely existed as more of a conceptual bogeyman than a bully taking lunch money. The focus had always been looming deadlines. In July, when owners officially locked out players, the actual season was too far away to...

  7. Arron Afflalo philosophical on the lockout

    Andy Kamenetzky

    A few days ago, I interviewed Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo as part of the "L.A. in my Game" series. (The discussion will be posted later this week.) While I had the Bruin standout on the phone, I asked for his take on recent comments from former NHL/D...

  8. Thoughts on Derek Fisher, candidness and the lockout PR battle

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Here are the talkies from Friday's players meeting at the Beverly Hilton. I'm going to post some additional thoughts later, but for the time being, here is a quick rundown. Washington Wizards big man JaVale McGee left the meeting early for unspeci...

  10. Numb to the lockout

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Monday's labor negotiations between the players and owners ran so deep into the New York night, they actually bled into my west coast evening as well. After much time spent waiting with one eye on Twitter updates and the other on the Cardinals-Brewer...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Not the news hoped for at the end of Tuesday's meetings in New York, but also not terribly shocking. Even those optimistic about a reasonably normal 2012 season figured the preseason would be toast. Certain things were simply destined to be sacrifice...

    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...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    I eagerly look forward to the day when PodKasts aren't focused on the lockout or lockout-related developments. Sadly, that day remains on the distant horizon. Still, a conversation with ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard is always enjoyable, and we ...

  16. The Triangle: Lockout, lockout and more lockout!

    Andy Kamenetzky

    In the newest show, the K Bros and Ramona Shelburne play a game "Fact or Fiction?" centered entirely around the lockout. Will there be a 2011-2012 season? Does a significantly shortened season reflect poorly on the NBA? Does a significantly shortened...
