I wish Jerry Buss would step in at the end of the season and kick out his son. That is probably a pipe dream though.

Can we please just let the child who has been involved with the organization her entire adult life run the show?

I know that playing boss and settling his sibling rivalry using daddy's $1billion business is fun, but we used to be a franchise that rewarded results and dismissed incompetence.

Not sure what has happened...

Jerry Buss must be in horrible health. Maybe he's not even mentally capable anymore of being involved at all. And no wonder Phil proposed. You have to propose to a girl who will side with you over her family :jam2:

Teams don't win championships when ownership is in disarray .. Its been proven time and time again .. Only if Magic and his investment group bought the Lakers instead of the Dodgers .. I don't know what the health status of Dr. Jerry Buss is but he must be blind or some sort of dementia must have set in for him not to see or realize that Jimmy is driving this organization into the ground .. I mean you trusted this moron with the Lakers? This is the same guy that failed at horse racing and running the sparks ... Smh

That's why Phil is after that FO job with the Kings. No shot getting into the lakers FO, whether or not he marries Jeannie.

First of all, it was Johnny Buss who ran the Sparks. Johnny ran the Sparks when they won their 2 championships in 2001 and 2002.

The Buss family no longer owns them and Johnny is no longer involved in sports.

I don't find it surprising. Jeannie hinted not long after that happened that she hadn't been going to games or watching it much. She intimated that things haven't been the same and she was kind of stepping back from the organization other than the work itself. She was very hurt by that whole ordeal obviously.

And why wouldn't she be? This is her future husband and Jimmy did him as dirty as he could. The way that all went down was despicable. There's no other way to describe it. Jim definitely shivved Phil in the back. It was brutal. That's not the way to treat a guy who brought your dad 5 f'ing championships. The way it went down was worse to me than even the actual hire of D' Antoni, which I hated enough as it was. I still feel like they are reaping the Karma of that move.

If you lived in LA during in the mid-2000's and listened to 570 am coverage you might remember the heated exchange on air that went on between Jim and Jeannie regarding Phil. It was really ugly. Jim has always hated Phil. I guess it's jealousy.

^Yep. I remember it well. Jim took issue with Phil's treatment of Kwame in the media. Calling him a "pu$$ycat" for not playing on a hurt ankle. I think later on, Rambis and Jeannie Buss went after Jimmy for his comment.

All jim needs to do is take a step back and let Mitch do his thing. He's a proven GM in putting together cohesive talent on a championship basketball team so why not utilize him when it comes to personnel and coaching?
Before long, someone recognized Phil Jackson sitting in the front seat, and then the rocks began to fly. Revelers pelted the bus and shook it, mocking the Lakers at their lowest moment.


It was painful,” Lakers forward Pau Gasol(notes) said. “It is a feeling that I want to keep in my mind for every single minute that I’m out there playing them.

The Buss family won't own this team in 5 years. Nothing new.
