Kamenetzky Brothers

Phil Jackson offers assessments of every Knicks player. Pretty interesting read. AK espn.go.com/nba/preview201…

Kamenetzky Brothers

And I’m tired of people w/no sense of humor. AK RT @Ken_Marks_Esq: Why be talking about "blame?" I'm tired of this retrospectoscope crap.

Kamenetzky Brothers

It is so beyond depressing to see a career like Steve Nash's go out like the sports equivalent of Old Yeller. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

I’ll be on @ESPNLA710 w/@iamBenLyons from 10am-noon PT. We’re talking Kobe, Randle, Blake Griffin, Vegas drink orders, & more. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Seems he’ll thrive regardless. AK RT @AnthonyIrwinNBA: @Kamenetzky Brothers @LakerSteve agree, though it seems he'd thrive in positionless system.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Power forward. AK RT @LakerSteve: @Kamenetzky Brothers AK - Do you see Randle settling in eventually as a PF, SF or essentially a hybrid?

Kamenetzky Brothers

Julius Randle already has a statue in front of Citizens Business Bank Arena. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

My 3 year-old daughter has seen Kobe enough to notice he's not playing. I can't decide if this makes me an amazing or horrible dad. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

My 3 year-old daughter, upon seeing Kaman: What's his name? Me: Chris Daughter: Like Kristoff from 'Frozen?' Me: Not exactly. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

No, they can’t vote for themselves. As someone pointed out, more likely Cavs GM. AK RT @Cnewcity: @Kamenetzky Brothers prob was bulls gm

Kamenetzky Brothers

Dunno, and a valid question. AK RT @MyClippers: will this be the first year that Love, Kyrie and Varejao play a whole season without injury?

Kamenetzky Brothers

Love isn’t on the Cavs w/o LeBron. AK RT @addzeeferrari: @Kamenetzky Brothers I'm pretty sure Love and Irving would make the playoffs in the East

Kamenetzky Brothers

I stand corrected, anonymous GM I know assume (or hope) is David Griffin. My bad. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

I mean, I love Pau, and think he’s a quality pickup for the Bulls. But someone is overthinking this. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Okay, some GM thinks Pau will make a bigger impact for CHI than LeBron for CLE. Really, GM? Really??? AK nba.com/news/features/…

Lenn Robbins

#Nets starting Teague, Karasev, Anderson, Jefferson and Plumlee,,,AK47 will only play if Nets get in foul trouble vs #Celtics.

Tim Bontemps

Hollins says Kirilenko almost certainly won't play tonight short of crazy foul trouble. Bogdanovic and Teletovic both will play off bench.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Stellar Wu Tang reference, sir! AK RT @YourManDevine: Kobe shrugs off claims he's to blame for Lakers' decline: yhoo.it/1yZ6lyQ

Kamenetzky Brothers

Always a good read. AK RT @Matt Moore: New @ HP: 2014-15 Hardwood Paroxysm Season Preview bit.ly/1rhhpzb

Kamenetzky Brothers

Worst… fighters…ever. AK RT @thebiglead: VIDEO: Arkansas Frat Bros Keep Fighting After Cop Arrives wp.me/p3LRnW-1JxP

Kamenetzky Brothers

Maybe it's just me, but I'm starting to get the feeling "Sons of Anarchy" isn't building up to a heart-warming ending. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Jordan Hill's jump shot influences include Andre Miller. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Mychal Thompson & I will be on @ESPNLA710 from 10am-noon PT talking @Henry Abbott’s Kobe article, plus WS, Clips, & more! Listen up! AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Holy crap! "Verified" Billy Zabka just favorited my Tweet about Billy Zabka!!!This is freakin' amazing! AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Billy Zabka and his fellow Cobra Kai are all still friends. This makes me very happy. AK ftw.usatoday.com/2014/10/karate…

Kamenetzky Brothers

They did have little success pre-Kobe. AK RT @jen_villar: @Los Angeles Lakers wouldn't be Lakers without Kobe being himself. Best work ethic ever

Kamenetzky Brothers

Oh, I believe you. AK RT @jen_villar: @Kamenetzky Brothers @SerenaWinters I'm sure if I saw the first tweet I'd reacted the same way. Thanks

Kamenetzky Brothers

On a completely unrelated note, bummed to hear The Cat & Fiddle is closing. Celebrated my 30th there. AK la.eater.com/2014/10/20/701…

Kamenetzky Brothers

As long as you’re not getting all semantic-y about this. AK RT @LakerGang17: I agree. No doubt he was a star but not a superstar.

Kamenetzky Brothers

140 character limit. AK RT @ep_ventura: @Kamenetzky Brothers "Ya'll"...man, where did this come from?

Kamenetzky Brothers

Y’all talking about how Pau “never won a playoff game” w/o Kobe are doing an awesome job anti-recruiting next year’s FA class, too. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Again, making my case for me. AK RT @frkshw32: yes Pau was a star in his own right but he also has never won a playoff game without Kobe.

Kamenetzky Brothers

This is what I mean when I say playing w/Kobe means getting no credit. AK RT @EvansPapa10: Pau was not a star, great talent but not a Star

Lenn Robbins

The Basketball Gods are Grinning after watching D-Will and AK47 play give and go, give and go. #Nets lead #Sixers 35-29 @barclayscenter

Kamenetzky Brothers

Dude… Pau. AK RT @Dre_Dynasty6:To be honest, Kobe never really needed star FAs. Look at 2009 Lakers. Great role players, but no other stars.

Kamenetzky Brothers

No question. AK RT @Therealbwc: @Kamenetzky Brothers micheal jordan punched teamates; froze them out in games...media coverage different now

Kamenetzky Brothers

On a legit contender w/Kobe in his prime, easier to reconcile. Kobe at 36, weak supporting cast, franchise in flux, less appealing. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

A lot comes w/being Kobe’s teammate, esp. as an All-Star. He rides you. Nothing will ever be quite good enough by comparison for fans. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

On a good team w/Kobe in his prime, his demanding nature & aura likely more palatable. Now, I imagine less so. That's just being honest. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Insofar as Kobe's ability to lure FA's, we never got to see the true test: Kobe in his prime, on a good team, with cap space. AK

Alex Raskin

#Nets: "Tonight's starters: Williams, Bogdanovic, Johnson, Kirilenko, Plumlee"

Tim Bontemps

Hollins says he just wants to see a different look with Kirilenko starting in place of Teletovic. Both will play.

Tom Lorenzo

Kirilenko will start tonight over Mirza. #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

AK is starting for Mirza tonight #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Andrei Kirilenko will start in place of Mirza Teletovic tonight.

Kamenetzky Brothers

This look at Kobe from @netw3rk is worth the time if for no other reason than the last graph. AK grantland.com/the-triangle/n…

Kamenetzky Brothers

ICYMI, it's a make or break @Los Angeles Clippers season for @Chris Paul, because that’s how the world works. AK medium.com/the-cauldron/i…

Kamenetzky Brothers

Is this serious or sarcasm? AK RT @c_rodsportswiz: @Kamenetzky Brothers the lakers 3rd unit is killing them

Kamenetzky Brothers

Considering some of the movies Nic Cage was cool with people seeing, this feels like a real statement. AK slate.com/blogs/browbeat…

Kamenetzky Brothers

Interesting piece about Hendrix's frustration at failing to connect w/black audiences. (h/t @bomani_jones) AK cnn.com/2014/10/18/sho…
