Whether it was PR speak or not, it did nothing to give the fans confidence for this season or next.

You guys crack me up, what do you expect him to say?


Him to say Pau will be traded and Pringles will get the boot. Also PJ will comeback and magically fix evrything and well win the remainder of games this season.

The biggest thing everyone seems to ignore was that he stated him, Jerry and Mitch have had multiple meetings together.

You think they had multiple meetings to discuss how injuries are plaguing this team? Please.

Again understand how executives talking to the media works before freaking out. I remember everyone getting on Mitch when he said "They think the roster can win as is" or Jim saying "There will not be major moves." It's all part of dealing with the media.

Let me save you the time. What is going on with this team? We are not running on all cylinders etc etc. Are there any moves coming? Well mitch and i are exploring options but if we do expect minimal changes we belive in this team . Too bad they dont ask real questions like why did they not give Phil till the deadline for an answer.

That time he said that, we got Steve Nash & Dwight Howard. :laughing:

Also, Buss mentioned he loves Pau.... Well let me take you back to the summer when Buss did an interview on AM710

COMMENTARY | For fans of the Los Angeles Lakers who are clamoring for Andrew Bynum to be traded during the offseason following the 2012 NBA Playoffs, it may be a long summer.

This development came to light when Lakers' executive Jim Buss told 710 ESPN Radio's "Mason & Ireland Show" on Thursday that the team's most candid and often controversial player was a potential franchise player.

"I think it's pretty obvious how I feel about Andrew Bynum," he said. "He's an incredible All-Star Center and you can build a future around him."

Jim is the problem and the solution. His presence in theorganization is the problem. His stepping down from having influence is the solution. This was posted in an article today and let him with ears listen and learn:

o Lakers fan in the space time continuum has ever said, “Boy I do love Jim Buss and the job he is doing running the Lakers!” He is a know-it-all. A person who has lots of money and feels entitled to make basketball-related decisions when he has no business doing so. It seems that he allows his personal and professional insecurities to make him take responsibilities that should solely belong to Mitch Kupchak. The most recent example was the hiring of Mike Brown, firing of Mike Brown, and the decision to hire Mike D’Antoni over Phil Jackson.

It's Jim!

Jerry Buss passed on Phil Jackson, not Jim. Not sure how many more times this needs to be said

What did you guys expect him to say? "Oh yea, we're in the process of doing some trades, I expect Pau gasol to be traded for "so-n-so" momentarily" .....really?

Truthfully, I don't care. He just repeated verbatim that MDA fits the personnel better than Phil. Not appear that they learned from their mistakes...

West Coast is right. Not surprising he said those things. Just wait and see what happens

I rather have Jim Rome or loud mouth Stephen A asking the questions. Hell, let the LA fans go in on him.



Why would he agree to be a part of that situation?....where the interveiwer is the whole "show" and wants to entertain rather then have a constructive conversation?
