The 2021-22 season has been, to put it mildly, off to a rocky start for the Lakers. They went 0-fer the entire preseason, then dropped the opening pair of regular season games, the second a loss to the Phoenix Suns, featuring a variety of meltdowns over officiating and a timeout brouhaha between Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard. Frankly, the team really needed a win, and finally got one against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday, 121-118. It wasn't always pretty or textbook. Budding superstar guard Ja Morant (40 points, 10 assists) carved up the Lakers' defense. The ball still gets turned over way too often. Russell Westbrook remains very inefficient from the floor. And so on and so forth. However, there were also plenty of positives. Carmelo Anthony led the Lakers with 28 points off the bench, fueling a win that saw him pass Moses Malone to become number nine on the NBA's all-time scoring list. Anthony Davis played exceptional defense inside and along the perimeter. Russell Westbrook (who notched 13 assists, albeit against nine turnovers) and LeBron James displayed some periodic flash working in tandem. And the team looked on balance its best over three games, by a significant margin. To be certain, a lot of work remains ahead of the Lakers. Like... a LOT. But everyone knew going into this season that even a successful campaign would be spent as a work in progress. That's just the deal for this particular roster. Thus, it's important to play well and improve, but sometimes you also gotta just take the W and gratefully keep it moving. And on Sunday, the Lakers ultimately did both. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT ONE: Reaction to the win, and what stood out most to the Kamenetzkys. SEGMENT TWO: What's starting to work for Westbrook, and what's still eluding him. SEGMENT THREE: Thoughts on Melo's historic night, and how enjoyable his presence on the Lakers has been. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

The 5 Things You Need To Know About The 2021-2022 NBA Season

Sliding into your podcast queue just before the season starts. It's the 75th anniversary of the NBA, and there's a chance the Milwaukee Bucks will repeat this season but honestly, the field is wide open. But we're not here to talk standings and odds. Let's talk about the more exciting side of the NBA Season. Fashion first, always. Leaguewide, teams will wear 123 different uniforms this season, with each team receiving four jersey editions: Association, Icon, City and Statement. Three OG NBA franchises – New York Knicks, Golden State Warriors (then Philadelphia) and Boston Celtics will wear a fifth Classic edition uniform. (The original shorty-shorts are not included). On those wide varieties of jerseys, you'll see the jersey sponsorships patches. The patches, which are now commonplace across the league, started in 2017 and have generated more than $150 million in operating revenue. Ever wonder where all of the money goes from the fines handed out to the players and coaches? To charity. Half of the money goes to the NBA for distribution to its official charitable partners. The other half goes to the NBPA's (National Basketball Players Association) non-profit, the NBPA Foundation. Some years the donations to the NBPA Foundation have totaled between $2.5 - $3 million. The funds go to furthering the sport and assistance to individuals, communities and organizations, sometimes globally. Old guys rule, for now. Many of the familiar faces in the league, like LeBron James (36), Chris Paul (36) and Dwight Howard (35), are the oldest players in the league. Look for young players like Zion Williamson (New Orleans Pelicans) and Cade Cunningham (Detroit Pistons) to step into the spotlight this season. The Los Angeles Lakers, which James and Howard both play for, is the oldest team in the league with an average age of 30.4. The Oklahoma City Thunder are the youngest, with an average age of 23.4. Look out men, the women are taking the court, and technically, they're in charge. Danielle Scott, the daughter of a college basketball official, becomes the sixth full-time female referee this season. That's the most women the NBA has ever had on staff at one time. You can't talk about the season and not speak about COVID. The NBA is the last major professional sports league to emerge from COVID protocols and resume a regularly scheduled season, but city-imposed mandates will impact the game. In New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles, out-of-town teams are exempt from the vaccination mandates, but the home teams are not. You've likely heard about Kyrie Irving (Brooklyn Nets) and how he can't even practice with his team until he's vaccinated. Irving's story may be the loudest but isn't the norm as the league is 95% vaccinated. Bonus: Here are the nuts and bolts of the season. Thirty teams will play 82 games – 41 at home and 41 away. At the end of the season, the top six teams in each of the two conferences will claim a place in the playoffs. The seventh through 10th ranked seeds will compete in a play-in tournament for each conference's two remaining playoff spots. Yes, more than half of the league makes it to the playoffs.

2021-22 Season Predictions: Will LeBron James and the Lakers Win an NBA Championship?

IT BEGINS TODAY! The Lakers kick off the 2021-22 NBA season, against the Golden State Warriors. So what's going to happen this year? It's time to make some big predictions. But first, a little more housekeeping as the Lakers finalized their roster. They returned another familiar face to El Segundo, claiming Avery Bradley off waivers after the veteran guard was cut by Golden State at the end of the preseason. Bradley will provide a little bit of depth as the Lakers recover from injury, and in theory at least could help bolster a backcourt short on defenders. Then again, there's no guarantee he'll be on the team in six weeks. Why did they go this direction, when help on the wings remains a much more pressing need from a roster construction perspective? Then, Frank Vogel talked about keeping LeBron James's minutes around 34 a game. Same with Russell Westbrook and Anthony Davis. Is that too many? Just right? LeBron says he doesn't like sitting, and actually feels worse when he plays less. Is he... um... full of it, just trying to maximize how much he'll play? And should everyone worry more about LeBron, or Davis and Westbrook? Just because LeBron is the oldest doesn't mean he's the most fragile. From there... PREDICTIONS! It's time to answer the following.... Where will the Lakers finish in defensive efficiency? How good do they need to be? What will they shoot from 3-point territory? What's the best way to boost that number? How many times will this year will Dwight Howard foul out? How many times will he be ejected? How much small ball center will LeBron and Carmelo Anthony play, and what does that say about lineups the Lakers might try? Plus two BOLD PREDICTIONS, about injuries and the number of dimes Westbrook and LeBron will drop this season. And finally, the biggest prediction of all: Will the Lakers win an NBA title this year? If not, who is the biggest threat? It might not be the team you're thinking. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

The Lakers' preseason is officially in the books after a 116-112 loss to the Sacramento Kings, the sixth loss in as many tries before the real games begin. (ALL HAIL 0-6!!!) But that last go-around wasn't entirely negative. To begin, this was arguably the best individual game each for LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook, and without question their best as a trio. For that matter, DeAndre Jordan (in by far his best showing as a Laker), Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, and Austin Reaves all enjoyed some nice moments. On balance, it was the best the Lakers have looked, period. That said, as one might expect after a loss, it also wasn't all peaches and cream, especially on the defensive end, where the Lakers remain somewhere between "inconsistent" and "a flat out mess." Plus, the health of several important players is still unknown, and the already low continuity from last year has been exacerbated. So what are the Kamenetzkys' big takeaways from the preseason, and how ready do they think the team is for the regular season to kick off next week? They discuss. Plus, praise for Reaves, and a PSA of sorts about Jordan. Hosts: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: A recap of the final preseason game, and in particular, Westbrook's night and progress with the Lakers. SEGMENT 2: How ready do the Lakers seem for the season to begin? SEGMENT 3: A plea to stop complaining about Jordan every second he's on the court. Plus, can Reaves actually hang in an NBA rotation?

The Lakers kicked off their preseason Sunday, losing to the Brooklyn Nets )or people wearing Brooklyn Nets uniforms, at least), 123-97. Save a break-a-sweat first quarter from Anthony Davis, both teams ran without their stars, so it's hard to draw too much meaning from the result, but certain things did stick out: It was nice to see Davis back on the floor, even playing a little in a game where if he took the afternoon off nobody would have blinked. There's a lot riding on this season for Davis, and just choosing to get out on the floor and begin the process of getting back to the elite levels not reached last season is encouraging. Malik Monk (6-12, 15 points) showed some of the skills that attracted the Lakers to him, and left teammates surprised he was available at the minimum. If he provides the type of offense he did Sunday along with passable D, at the least he'll answer the question of where he fits into a crowded rotation. The answer would be decidedly "somewhere." Talen Horton-Tucker and Kendrick Nunn shared a backcourt. Were the different responsibilities each seemed to carry an indicator of how - and with whom- the coaching staff might deploy both? Dwight Howard is back, and to say the least, brought some Dwight Howard vibes. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: The Lakers lose, Anthony Davis plays... did he make an impression? And what about Malik Monk? He certainly got Lakers Twitter going. SEGMENT 2: More on Monk. How could something that builds on his career performance last season impact the upside for the team? And what did we see from THT and Nunn that might be a clue for where the coaching staff is leaning in terms of responsibilities, roles and floor combinations? SEGMENT 3: Dwight Howard is back, and he's bringing that Dwight Howard vibe once again. Is that a good thing? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

It's been a busy week around the NBA as camps are set to open next week. Nick Angstadt (Locked on Mavs, Locked on NBA) joins to break down the Lakers offseason (and this week's appearance for Dwight Howard on The Masked Singer), look at the range of possible outcomes for the Mavericks, who have seen more change in the last 10 months than the last 10 years, and figure out what happens in the Ben Simmons saga, which is potentially tied to the saga in Minnesota around their now-fired GM. So lots to talk about! HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky (Guest, Nick Angstadt) SEGMENT 1: Dwight Howard is a singing octopus, a headline that would have caused Lakers fans to riot in 2012 but is just something fun to enjoy in 2021 on Howard's third tour with Los Angeles. That's a good thing. Meanwhile, is he, like most of the roster, a little too long in the tooth? Where does age matter, and where does it not? Did the Lakers get enough shooting? SEGMENT 2: The Mavs have seen a tremendous amount of change this offseason, and are a popular dark horse pick in the West. Why, though? Is it just Luka Doncic? How much better is Dallas this year compared to last? Could they push the Lakers? Angstadt delivers a scouting report. SEGMENT 3. Andrew Wiggins won't get vaxxed up in the Bay, Ben Simmons wants out but has no natural landing spot, and Minnesota is - still - a mess of management. It's NBA news!

For all the consternation about roster moves, who came and who went for the Lakers this offseason, it was widely assumed for at least the first portion of the summer that the team would bring Jared Dudley back for another season serving as the official glue of the locker room. That presumption began to crumble last week with reports the Lakers were working out players to fill a couple empty roster spots, while also planning to keep a third one open... which would squeeze Duds out. Maybe they'd open a spot on the coaching staff? Nope, they didn't. But Jason Kidd made room (on the front of the bench, no less) for Dudley on his new staff in Dallas, and with that, the Jared Dudley Era is over. There was at least a little angst on the part of fans, some of whom wanted him back for as little as it would have cost the Lakers, and in the media (a scathing column from Bill Plaschke at the LA Times) that the Lakers would so casually let a player who meant so much to team chemistry walk. Are they making a mistake? If nothing else, LeBron James expressed some disappointment. But what does it mean for the Lakers if they miss Dudley too much this season? Then, it's time for a new segment... What If? Taking hypotheticals tossed out by listeners/viewers, and play out the scenarios on the pod. One popular one submitted by a few people: What if the Lakers HAD traded Andrew Bynum for Jason Kidd back in 2007? The downstream implications to this one are significant. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Jared Dudley is gone... should it matter that much? SEGMENT 2: LeBron hit social media to react to Dudley leaving. Should anyone worry that he seemed kinda down? Then it's hypothetical time! What if Kidd had become a Laker in '07? Does Pau Gasol ever join the team? What happens to the Dwight Howard 1.0 Era, short as it was. Do the Lakers lose out on one Gasol, but eventually build around another, because they never actually trade Marc? SEGMENT 3: More on (pretend) Kidd-to-LA... so if the Lakers make the trade, the Summer of '07, with the parking lot video and the radio tour and all the craziness, never happens, right? To what end?

During LeBron James' three seasons with the Lakers (and the entirety of his career, really), what to do while he sits has been mystery. The dropoff from arguably the greatest player ever and.... whoever else... would logically be pretty stark, but LeBron also can't play 48 minutes for 82 games and an entire postseason run, so something has to give. The question is just how much. With that in mind, the Kamenetzkys discuss a terrific piece by Silver Screen and Roll's Alex Regla examining this dilemma, and whether the Lakers are better equipped now to, if nothing else, prevent a complete collapse if their superstar sits for even 90 seconds. The answer remains to be seen, but on paper, this year's team seems as well-positioned as any. Not surprisingly, the key to this puzzle will be Russell Westbrook. From there, a fun listener question on the iTunes show page from ncarnick. (Listeners can also contact the Kamenetzkys on twitter - @kambrothers - or email - kamenetzkybrothers@gmail.com.) The Lakers could start a "five future Hall of Famers" lineup of LeBron, Anthony Davis, Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard. (Marc Gasol has a sold chance of making the HOF, but he's not a given like the others.) That unit wouldn't make a ton of sense from a basketball perspective, but would be pretty badass as an opening night celebration/gimmick. Should the Lakers do just for Game 1? Plus, a fun game within that game! Hosts: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Is this season's roster better situated to handle LeBron off the floor? SEGMENT 2: Is Russell Westbrook the best player in the NBA to replicate LeBron's skills and style running an offense? SEGMENT 3: Should the Lakers start an impractical - but fun - LeBron/Russ/AD/Melo/Dwight lineup for opening night? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

That's What She Said with Sarah Spain

Sarah talks to Stan Van Gundy about how he owes his NBA career to his brother Jeff, the truth behind his decision to step down from the Heat in 2005-06, the one time in his career where he acted without integrity and how it still irks him, why he says he and Dwight Howard had a great relationship, and how his life in basketball has helped shape his worldview.
