Jeannie is light years ahead of them. I have full confidence in her ability to lead the Lakers.


And the OKC owner who nickel and dimed his team and lost Harden.
Or The Cavs Dan Gilbert who is a slimeball.
Or Prokorhov the absentee owner who let Billy King assault his franchise.
Or the Minnesota, secret contract for Joe Smith, owner.
Or the petty crying Jordan of the Hornets.

I could probably list more losers here if I Googled the owners of other clubs.

The hate Jeanie gets on this board is absurd.


Well that's what happens when you don't have any good moves under your belt and you fail to make obvious ones like hiring Jerry West as a consultant.

Mitch was hated until he made the Gasol trade.


No good moves? Getting rid of Jim Buss is probably a Top 10 move in the NBA for the year. Bringing in Magic. Running an efficient business side of the house. Etc.

I agree not getting West was a mistake. But for me one that is likely inconsequential in the grand scheme of things (the hysteria on here the past day has been quite amusing).

Suddenly now she's the worst? Even though without any effort you see listed here 10 owners who are easily worse. Seriously -- of the 10 owners we've llisted here, would you take any of those instead?


Running the business side is irrelevant. Being succesful in one basketball area does not translate in another (see Phil).

Her other relevant basketball moves included "Stay Dwight" and the Lamarcus Aldrige twitter fiasco. Not exactly confidence inspiring.

Replacing Jim is a good move only if it leads to better results not worse/the same. The jury is out on magic/pelinka but if not hiring west is an indication then it doesn't bode well for the future.

She deserves to be bashed for ignoring west especially since Jim was bashed for ignoring phil as coach. As long as she hasn't proven herself, I can see it's arguable on her being the worst owner in the league. As some have pointed out, the preception of our FO from other fans with terrible FO's is similar to our views.

So of the 10 listed, would you have any of them as your owner rather than Jeannie?

Moving the goal posts are we? You specifically said Jeannie is the WORST owner in the NBA. Therefore the question is perfectly valid -- if you believe she is the worst, then that means that you believe that every person listed would be a better owner than her.

Look, she's definitely not at the level of a Paul Allen (philanthropist) or Peter Holt (Stability) or Cuban (Passionate Support). That wasn't my point. If you tallied up all the other owners, I'd say she'd probably be average -- right around 15th. What I find needs to be discussed is the needless hate that she gets, where hyperbole marks her as a horrible human being and worst this and that.

Just to add to the ten loser owners mentioned, here's some others:

- Magic's DeVos: Built empire on a pyramid scheme, actively funding campaigns to roll back civil rights for the LGBT community

- Bulls Reinsdorf: Dismantled a dynasty since he believed Management and not players won championships

- Detroit's Gores: Had an affair with his brother's wife!

- Pelican's Benson: His family makes the Buss' look like the Brady Bunch (http://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/pelicans-and-saints-owner-tom-benson-says-family-members-tried-to-kill-him/)

Is she perfect? No. But I'd definitely have her instead of a homophobe, Fat Reinsdorf, the Manson family, people who make money off of the misery of others, and on and on.

Are forum members saying she's a bad person like some of these other owners? It seems like more are judging her competence as an owner, not whether she's a good human being nor not.

I think you've missed this and many other ownership threads where some (obviously not majority) posters portray her as evil incarnate. Personally, for something I put so much time and energy into, I'd like an owner who is both competent and a decent human being.

On competence, like I said, she's average. And recently (excluding this ONE thing on The Logo), I think she's actually doing quite well. As someone already mentioned, thankfully so much better than Jim

Is it set in stone that Ryan West leaves the Lakers??? I would think that he would want to make his own legacy and he won't do that with the Clippers working under his father. The bottomline is this, as much as Clipper fans hate to admit it, they will always be an afterthought in LA and second fiddle, even if they are the better team. Simple as that, it's like UCLA Football to USC Football or USc Basketball to UCLA Basketball. Ryan's biggest payday and credibility builder will be as eventually taking over as the Lakers GM.

And Mitch had 2 titles prior to Gasol. Jeanie and her siblings have given us fans the worst 4 year period in Laker history. They have created a bottom 2 team. That is their legacy.

Ryan West might have been on the road map to future GM before the coup but that could be a long wait now. Mitch was in his 60s and on the wrong side in the Jim/Jeannie war but she handpicked Magic and Magic handpicked Pelinka. West is a holdover from the previous regime and it seems like the other Buss brothers are trying to get their names attached to any future success in rebuilding the team.

I don't see this as a long term play for Pelinka to be honest. I really think this is like a 3 year stop for him and then he either goes back to his previous field where he likely made a lot more money or he moves up to VP of Bball Operations.

Look, she's definitely not at the level of a Paul Allen (philanthropist) or Peter Holt (Stability) or Cuban (Passionate Support). That wasn't my point. If you tallied up all the other owners, I'd say she'd probably be average -- right around 15th. What I find needs to be discussed is the needless hate that she gets, where hyperbole marks her as a horrible human being and worst this and that.

Just to add to the ten loser owners mentioned, here's some others:

- Magic's DeVos: Built empire on a pyramid scheme, actively funding campaigns to roll back civil rights for the LGBT community

- Bulls Reinsdorf: Dismantled a dynasty since he believed Management and not players won championships

- Detroit's Gores: Had an affair with his brother's wife!

- Pelican's Benson: His family makes the Buss' look like the Brady Bunch (http://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/pelicans-and-saints-owner-tom-benson-says-family-members-tried-to-kill-him/)

Is she perfect? No. But I'd definitely have her instead of a homophobe, Fat Reinsdorf, the Manson family, people who make money off of the misery of others, and on and on.


As many have pointed out, stop moving goal posts since those things are irrelevant in what we're looking for in a basketball owner.

What has happened to this franchise since the Buss kids took over is factual.

- Pelican's Benson: His family makes the Buss' look like the Brady Bunch (http://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/pelicans-and-saints-owner-tom-benson-says-family-members-tried-to-kill-him/)

Is she perfect? No. But I'd definitely have her instead of a homophobe, Fat Reinsdorf, the Manson family, people who make money off of the misery of others, and on and on.


As many have pointed out, stop moving goal posts since those things are irrelevant in what we're looking for in a basketball owner.


LOL. Suggest you look up what it means to 'move the goal posts' since you seem to have no comprehension how it related to the discussion.

Fail comment of the day. Be thankful none of these buffoons own the Lakers:

James Dolan, Knicks
Josh Harris, 76ers
Vivek Ranadive, Kings
Robert Sarver, Suns
Stan Kroenke, Nuggets

Jeannie is light years ahead of them. I have full confidence in her ability to lead the Lakers.


And the OKC owner who nickel and dimed his team and lost Harden.
Or The Cavs Dan Gilbert who is a slimeball.
Or Prokorhov the absentee owner who let Billy King assault his franchise.
Or the Minnesota, secret contract for Joe Smith, owner.
Or the petty crying Jordan of the Hornets.

I could probably list more losers here if I Googled the owners of other clubs.

The hate Jeanie gets on this board is absurd.


Well that's what happens when you don't have any good moves under your belt and you fail to make obvious ones like hiring Jerry West as a consultant.

Mitch was hated until he made the Gasol trade.


No good moves? Getting rid of Jim Buss is probably a Top 10 move in the NBA for the year. Bringing in Magic. Running an efficient business side of the house. Etc.

I agree not getting West was a mistake. But for me one that is likely inconsequential in the grand scheme of things (the hysteria on here the past day has been quite amusing).

Suddenly now she's the worst? Even though without any effort you see listed here 10 owners who are easily worse. Seriously -- of the 10 owners we've llisted here, would you take any of those instead?


Running the business side is irrelevant. Being succesful in one basketball area does not translate in another (see Phil).

Her other relevant basketball moves included "Stay Dwight" and the Lamarcus Aldrige twitter fiasco. Not exactly confidence inspiring.

Replacing Jim is a good move only if it leads to better results not worse/the same. The jury is out on magic/pelinka but if not hiring west is an indication then it doesn't bode well for the future.

She deserves to be bashed for ignoring west especially since Jim was bashed for ignoring phil as coach. As long as she hasn't proven herself, I can see it's arguable on her being the worst owner in the league. As some have pointed out, the preception of our FO from other fans with terrible FO's is similar to our views.


So of the 10 listed, would you have any of them as your owner rather than Jeannie?


Any of the 10 since it can hardly get worse. You could debate with sac's owner though.


Wow, you really want to die on this hill don't you. Given that you would rather have Dolan, Prokhorov, etc. tells me all I need to know.

It tells you nothing because it isn't an option. None of them will own the Lakers. The Buss Family Trust does, and it is easy to see what has happened here since they became owners. Only Brooklyn and Philly have performed as poorly as we have, with similar negative press.
