Should the word of Lakers executive Jim Buss be trusted?

Hey all,

Here are a few updates for Friday:

Should the word of Lakers executive Jim Buss be trusted?
http://www.latimes.com/sports/lakersnow ... 2361.story

The day before Mike Brown was fired, Jim Buss gave his support.

That’s why this story should be taken with a grain of salt:

Lakers executive Jim Buss says 'we're not going to panic'

Also,

I have Thunder tonight vs. Lakers – not a shocker:

Thanks!

I don't trust what Jim is saying, but I do trust his intentions.

Jim Buss is doing what he has to do. If the Lakers are going to pursue trades at the deadline, they can't appear desperate.

IMO, Jim is trying to counteract the words of Mitch Kupchak several days ago when Mitch lambasted the team for their defense and for not running "on all cylinders." If trades are going to be made, we can't look like we're in a "deep dark place" as Nash likes to call it.
"Every time he’s hurt, he always plays, he always comes through."

I believe that he made what PR deemed a mandatory public appearance due to results thus far.

I felt like he didnt really say anything of substance at all, so doesnt matter if I trust it or not.

As to effecting trade values in the eyes of other GM's, c'mon guys. Other GM's in the league dont operate in a vacume. They can see and hear everything that's going on with the Lakers, same as we can. Better.

Jimmy telling everyone that "everything's fine" though a s--t eating grin on a radio interview doesn't affect other GM's in the least.

Nah, he shouldn't be trusted. Welcome to every other sports franchise's problems
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

"To be removed if the Lakers make the playoffs." Well, I removed it for an hour and decided to put it back. I have to be honest.

This.

Jim Buss is a moron whose only qualification, as one commentator on ESPN pointed out before the OKC game, is being Jerry's kid.

this is the biggest mistake he's made by far

but hiring mike brown over shaw and adelman was just terrible as well. he ruined this team just because he couldn't man up, swallow his pride, and do what's best for the team. he let his stupid beef with phil get in the way and it's screwed up this team for good
