This is spectacularly awful. We can't even close the deal on hiring a LeBron-friendly coach who, frankly, doesn't seem to have a lot of other suitors lining up to hire him.

This is far and away the lowest point the Lakers org has ever descended to. If Jeanie can't take control of what's going on, then she should have the decency and class to step aside.


I'd say we should trade Brawn if this is the path of futility we're gonna continue on, but that only gives them another chance at a royal F up. I have to disagree that this is the bottom tho. The bottom will be Kawhi or others signing with the Clippers while we strike out. That's when we'll truly know that the Lakers have lost their LA privileges. And The Gimp is already giggling at us while we get the Marcellus Wallace treatment.

Magic, come back!


Maybe we can say this is the bottom before the next bottom.

If she is the smart one in the family, I am surprised her siblings can dress themselves. Talk about a low bar, she seemingly has an IQ of about 85.


Yup. Nothing about her says intelligence. Every word she says feels superficial. From calling Phil her “boyfriend” instead of just “Phil” to her reference of GOT and a fictional character, who is by the way 1/3 of her age, being her hero screams idiot.


Are you FREAKING kidding me? She ACTUALLY said that her hero was from a TV show??

Honestly I wouldn't blame him.

He has to regret signing here and the ongoing clown show with ownership leads one to believe the ship be sinking.


Indeed, it be sinking.


Michael Ray Richardson, that.

She could also be voted out by her own siblings... which may also be why she is so concerned with surrounding herself with loyalty. She is not a normal owner in the sense that she doesn't report to anyone and count be held accountable, meaning either the franchise could be sold out from under her or, even worse, she could just lose her job. And, btw, if she loses her job, it doesn't necessarily mean that a Buss has to be the one to run things. IIRC, the children can vote whoever they want into that role. This is a big point that people don't discuss enough IMO.

Jeanie's arse never looked like Emilia Clarke's. We know this because we've actually seen Jeanie's bum. She did a nude pictorial, our owner.

Wasn't even aware of this possibility - Jeanie getting voted out.

This seems like a likely scenario given the current circumstances.

how many Buss siblings are there? Im sure there's enough who rather just cash out at this point rather than receive their relatively small annual dividends while Jeannie plays Laker owner with her BFF

Well, they are not going to sell the team. This sh*t show will continue and we will have to suffer these clowns for years to come.

It was time several years ago. I don't think Jeanie really knows how poorly the public perception of the franchise is right now. She's too busy living in the past. The only way out is if there's some scandal and the NBA forces them to sell like MLB did to the McCourts.

I take no pleasure in saying this. Maybe VLF was right about the Buss kids all along. Maybe growing up in Ventura he saw first hand how entitled kids can crapped away all their family’s hard work and legacy.

Yup - Where here talking about the Buss kids selling which is unlikely given the success and profit the Lakers bring in every season.

But if Jeanie continues down this road...I can see the board/siblings voting her out and replacing her with someone competent.

The issue many are missing is that why would the younger Buss boys want to bring someone in from the outside to come and clean house?

Jeanie gets a lot heat for holding onto Rob and not going after a Presti or Myers, but the reality of the situation is Jesse and Joey right now are very intimately involved in personnel/scouting/basketball ops.

Would that still be the case if a Bob Meyers or Sam Presti came in? What if that person wanted to come in and completely clean house from top to bottom? It would appear that one caveat of any basketball ops hire would be he has to keep the Buss kids. The last thing those two want is someone coming in and completely turning things upside down.

I'm not saying it's right or wrong - because our scouting and personnel have been pretty solid for several years, so they appear to be good at their jobs - but that doesn't change the reality that removing them from their current positions appears to be a non-starter.

So it's not all about what Jeanie does and doesn't want.

I am hoping that Adam Silver can find a way to guide Jeanie out of the mess she is making. I don't know what their relationship is like, or how he operates. But as a representative of all other owners - some of whom rely on the incredible revenue that the Lakers generate - it seems within his right to have a little "Come to Jesus" meeting with her. Without Linda.

The Lakers are a freakin' JOKE right now!

Could ANYTHING go wrong?

How about LeBron DEMANDING a trade?

Lakers lose any chance of getting Irving, who is SO ready to bolt from Boston, yet Jeanie NERO, sits there playing her fiddle as the Lakers BURN!

Great idea, lets hire a LOSER Coach, that the Management can dictate ALL of the ASSistant Coaches, so they can bring back Madsen and who knows who else, then LOW BALL them pay wise so that you can save those BILLIONS and then give them a SHORT contract, so you won't lose any money when you fire them mid-contract, when the Lakers continue to LOSE, since no BIG name FA's will sign here, since the Management is a JOKE...!

We are stuck in a vicious circle of decline...

Here is the article in Yahoo. It is on point.


What would right the Lakers' ship? The Buss family selling the team


"The Lakers are burning goodwill at a rapid rate. What should have been a common-sense negotiation with Tyronn Lue turned into a painful ordeal that resulted in Lue pulling out of talks to become the franchise’s next head coach."

"The Lakers always felt like her No. 1 priority, but now she seems too preoccupied with pleasing those who haven’t put in the sweat equity of building the proud brand ..."

"Some have brought up the extreme: The Lakers trading James to a sane environment to play out his remaining years.

But given the dysfunction, the Buss family should go further: Sell the family business altogether."

if they put the Lakers up for bid, each Laker kid could probably walk away with a cool 1/2 billion each. Who of them would really say no to that compared to getting like 10mil a year from the trust fund while Jeanie runs the team into the ground?
