What makes you think it's only Jim who isn't ready to sign anybody?
I hate that whenever we sign/get a good player Mitch gets the praise, and whenever we don't make a move it's because of "freaking Jim Buss"...
I'm no Jim Buss supporter but I just can't stand the many times unjustified hate.
unjustified? really? after rudy? after brown? after dantoni?
jeanie and jim arnt on speaking terms, and that says alot.
jim shouldnt be doing anything basketball related, he clearly has no talent for it
I haven't liked "his" (btw, are we really sure they were 100% his decisions? -the answer's no-) coaching hires, and consider that criticism justified. What's unjustified is, for example, Kit blaming Jim for the team not making moves (i.e. trades or player signings) just yet. Makes no sense at all to blame Jim Buss. Do we know it's his decision? Do we know it's not Mitch's? Do we know it's not a decision they both agree on?
Again, we make a good move, "all praise mitch!" We make a bad move / don't make one, "F Jim Buss". It's pathetic reasoning.
Wasn't Jim Buss the one who insisted on Mitch calling PHO and asking about Nash? Wasn't Jim Buss who got over his "man crush on his boy Bynum" and told Mitch to go get Howard?
BTW, it was said by many that it was Dr. Buss himself who was behind (or partially behind) the MDA hire..
Fans are just too quick to blame it all on Jim Buss, all the while having so little information and being so contradictory that they just come out ignorant.
