What a week! The Lakers are on a roll, pushing their record to 17-10 and drifting closer to the top of the Western Conference. Why? Because (among other things) LeBron James is still great, but also because the defense has become a top 10 group, and Kyle Kuzma is playing well on both ends (including … (https://kambrothers.blubrry.net/2018/12/12/kuzmania-ii-the-return-of-kuzmania-trevor-ariza-returns-and-who-hosts-the-oscars/)

We all kind of knew how this movie would end, but getting there was nonetheless pretty interesting. The Lakers went through the trade deadline unable to pry Anthony Davis away from the Pelicans (because, in large part, the Pelicans had zero incentive to make a deal now). Still, it was a messy, public process in … (https://kambrothers.blubrry.net/2019/02/10/the-lakers-after-the-trade-deadline-what-now/)

The Lakers need a new coach, and have sent the gang out to interview. That includes expected players like GM Rob Pelinka and owner Jeanie Buss, but also more eyebrow-raising folks like the Rambi, Kurt and Linda. What should we make of the current Lakers braintrust? And what should we think of the three primary … (https://kambrothers.blubrry.net/2019/05/03/who-should-be-the-next-coach-of-the-lakers/)

Well, Wednesday was busy! The Lakers fought of what seemed like the smart, safe, inevitable hiring of Ty Lue as their next head coach. Instead, they’ve plunged themselves deep back into the abyss of bad process, bad press, and bad optics heading into arguably the most consequential free agent summer in team history. So what … (https://kambrothers.blubrry.net/2019/05/10/ty-lue-is-out-who-is-going-to-be-in-with-pete-zayas-lakerfilmr...

The Lakers took a big swing on Kawhi Leonard. They missed. And in a matter of hours, they’d filled out most of the roster. So was it a success? We highlight the good and the less good, and give our overall grades to Rob Pelinka and the rest of the front office. From there, it’s … (https://kambrothers.blubrry.net/2019/07/12/the-lakers-make-their-play-in-free-agency-how-did-they-do/)

The Kamenetzky Brothers are back with the Land O’Lakers Podcast! Unfortuantely, the same can’t be said for the Lakers’ offense, which hasn’t really returned from the NBA’s hiatus. LeBron James has been… meh? Anthony Davis has played two great games and four pretty ordinary (or worse). What can be done to fix it, and what … (https://kambrothers.blubrry.net/2020/08/10/will-the-lakers-offense-ever-leave-quarantine/)

Mo Dakhil of Bleacher Report and The Athletic joins! The Lakers have finished their eight tune up games before the playoffs start on Tuesday. Does it matter they only won three of them? Does it matter that LeBron wasn’t all that great? What about Kyle Kuzma, one of the team’s few bubble bright spots?

The Lakers are back in the NBA Playoffs, for the first time in nearly a decade, and as a top seed in the Western Conference. Unfortunately, they draw an unusually difficult opponent in the Portland TrailBlazers. Damian Lillard is red hot, and the Blazers are a better team than the one that struggled throughout the … (https://kambrothers.blubrry.net/2020/08/17/lakers-vs-trailblazers-nba-playoffs-preview-with-peter-sampson/)

It took a long time for the Lakers to return to the postseason, and for the first few minutes of Game 1 Tuesday, they still hadn’t, falling behind big to the TrailBlazers before coming back… at least temporarily. In  the end, the Lakers fell down 1-0 to Portland in their first round matchup, injecting a … (https://kambrothers.blubrry.net/2020/08/19/portland-100-lakers-93-la-drops-game-1/)

After dropping Game 1 to Portland in the bubble Tuesday night, in one of the worst offensive performances of the season, the Lakers got off to a quick start Thursday in Game 2, eventually cruising to a 111-88 win over the Trail Blazers. Series tied, 1-1. Anthony Davis led the way, answering (for one night at least) a ton of questions about his readiness to be a playoff hero. Andy and Brian break down what was different about A.D. s...

The Lakers were sluggish early, but LeBron James carried them to halftime, and then combined with Anthony Davis to pull away from the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 3 of their first round NBA Playoffs series in the Orlando Bubble. James and Davis both put up big stat lines, but the Lakers also received significant contributions from Alex Caruso, who played arguably his best game as a Laker, and (in the second half, at least) Kentav...

Would Monday's Game 4 be the game the Lakers get superstar performances throughout from LeBron James and Anthony Davis? Would this be the game the Lakers came out and stole all hope away from a tired and lesser team? Yes* and yes. Anthony Davis was dominant from the jump, especially defensively. LeBron James was again in Playoff LeBron form, and the Lakers finished the first quarter with an 18 point lead. At halftime, they were...

Wednesday was supposed to be the day the Lakers finished off the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 5 of their first round series. Instead, it might be the day NBA players decided they were finished with the postseason altogether. NBA players, starting with the Milwaukee Bucks, chose not to play Wednesday, in protest over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Where the league and its players go from he...

The Lakers have advanced to the second round of the NBA Playoffs and are still waiting to see if they'll play the Oklahoma City Thunder or the Houston Rockets. It might take a day or two, which gives us time to catch up with Kyle Goon of the Southern California News Group. For 50 days, Goon has been inside the NBA bubble, and in a candid conversation describes what life is like, not just for players but for the media covering t...

The Los Angeles Lakers are in the second round of the playoffs for the first time in a long time, facing the star power of James Harden, Russell Westbrook and the Houston Rockets. It's a matchup a lot of people wanted to see... so how will it play out? Kelly Iko, who covers the Rockets for The Athletic and co-hosts the Rockets pod Brodie and the Beard joins the show to break it all down. He explains why the small-ball Rockets a...

The Lakers got off to a bad start in their matchup with the Houston Rockets in the second round of the NBA Playoffs, losing 112-97 Friday in Orlando. It was a sloppy game for L.A., with the Lakers turning the ball over 15 times leading to 27 points for the Rockets. The Lakers didn't shoot well from the perimeter, and didn't get to the free throw line much, either. Offensively, it was a truly poor showing. Houston, meanwhile...

The Lakers didn't have to win Game 2... but probably best to not to find out what it would mean to go down 0-2. They came out hot in the first quarter, playing great defense and pushing pace to build a big lead. Houston erased all of it with a third quarter blitz, but in the fourth L.A. tightened up the defense and gave the Lakers a decent bit of breathing room over the final few minutes of the fourth. It was fascinating game, ...

It's been 10 years, but the Lakers are finally returning to the Western Conference Finals, having dispatched the Houston Rockets four games to one in Round 2 of the NBA Playoffs.

The Lakers are in the Western Conference Finals. No real surprise, there. Their opponent, though, is. Not the Clippers, as expected, but the Denver Nuggets, who polished off an epic set of comebacks within comebacks nested in other comebacks to beat the LAC 4-3 in a bonkers Western Conference Semifinals. So what does this matchup bring? We're joined by Adam Mares of DNVR Sports (theDNVR.com) to break it down. What got the Nugge...
