  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. 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...

  4. 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...

  5. 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...

  6. Andrew Bynum named Western Conference Player of the Week

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Solid week for NBA big men nicknamed "Drew." Along with the Bucks' Drew Gooden in the East (who, ironically, has flourished filling in for the injured and eventually traded Andrew Bogut), Andrew Bynum was selected as the Western Conference Player of ...

  7. 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...

  8. 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...

  9. Rescued from the chat archives: The lockout and legacies

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The added benefit of Wednesday's chat -- aside from it just being awesome -- was the reminder of a question I wanted to explore from a previous chat: Turner (Indiana): Who do you guys think the lockout for a full season effects more? LeBron's c...

  10. Chat transcript

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Neither rain nor sleet nor gloom of night nor Brian on vacation nor me hosting the first 20-ish minutes while on solo baby duty will prevent the Land O' Lakers chat from popping. Talking points included who should start at small forward, wishful thin...

  11. Offseason needs: Outside shooting

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The first in a series analyzing the biggest offseason needs. To begin, outside shooting. Scale of 1-10 importance: 10 I consider outside shooting the team's most pressing issue; more than athleticism, positional upgrades (read: point guard),...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The only thing better than ear candy is holiday weekend ear candy. And with Lakers beat writer Dave McMenamin, no less. The degree of awesomeness can't be quantified without the use of science. Here were the talking points for the conversa...

  13. 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...

  14. Lakers vs. Spurs: What to watch PodKast, with 48 Minutes of Hell

    Andy Kamenetzky

    As Brian wrote earlier this season, Lakers-Spurs is a fantastic rivalry for several reasons, not the least of which is that it simply refuses to fade into irrelevance. Since 1999, these teams have been swapping titles back and forth, with just one po...

  15. New PodKast: Spurs loss, trades, All-Star talk

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Is there a better way to kick off the weekend than with a new batch of ear candy? If so, it's probably not legal and quite possibly a little seedy. Stick with this wholesome good fun. PODCAST Andy and Brian talk a heartbreaking (or he...

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

    Andy Kamenetzky

    As Brian elaborated, the rivalry between the Lakers and Spurs hasn't just dominated the NBA since 1999. It's been equal parts competitive and respectful. Seriously, can you really hate Greg Popovich, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobli or Tony Parker? (Okay, Ev...
