Listening to Mike and Mike yesterday and Mike Golic is talking about Jim Buss.
Mike Golic? It's almost comical that someone with such little insight on Western conference NBA, would know anything about the "ego" of Jim Buss.
And then there is Stephen A Smith.
Last year it was Jim Buss will not trade Bynum, but he traded him. So now, it's a D'Antoni thing and so even though it's WIDELY reported that Dr. Buss wanted a semblance of Showtime, there was no "blame" dared cast forth in his direction.
And the sickest part of all, is saying things like "Mr. Silver Spoon."
you want jim Buss to feel ashamed to be Doctor Buss' son? It's his fault that he was born rich?
i understand trying to create a narrative, but they don't tell both sides.
they were LITERALLY saying last season that the Lakers could make ZERO moves to improve the roster and we got Ramon. It didn't get us to the championship, but 2nd round in a rebuilding year wasn't bad. Don't forget the CP3 trade.
After Ramon opted out, again, they said Lakers were financially strapped and that Jim Buss was cheap, and loo at the team the front office put together on paper.
And I'll still take this year's roster over last year's.
So, it didn't work out. D'Antoni was part to blame of that and Jim is PART to blame of D'antoni's hire. I think kobe could have led more. Dwight could have followed quicker. D'Antoni could have handled minutes better and got out of Kobe's way sooner. I thought beyond all that though, the injury big could have bit another team.
We've seen portland andWashington and other teams go through this type of every starter gets injured situation, but who knew this would be our season.
45-37 with injuries
But the 17-25 portion was some BLOWN games and just overall bad play .
None of the positives presented though. And the season that he buries his father, he has to put up with non sense from clowns on a soapbox.
I Love Jeanie, but she is sticking to her strong suit and Jim is fulfilling Doctor Jerry Buss' wishes. I can see if he were Mark cuban, who brings criticism to himself. Or Paul Allen, the richest owner but also CHEAP!
This guy has done nothing but slowly integrate himself into the fold, and all people want to talk about his this HUGE ego. it's unfair and s Lakers fans, you should be outraged instead of giving these guys the fuel to keep disrespecting the check writer.
