This summer's a big one in cementing my opinion of Jim Buss. I was pretty pissed at him during the lockout summer, because of how he let go all those employees in an unclassy manner and not hiring Adelman, and although he made the CP3 trade, it was only because LA would also be saving tons of money in the process.
My opinion of him improved after he pulled the trigger on Howard (which happend while Dr. Buss was in the hospital so I'll give Jimmy credit here) and firing Mike Brown as well. I won't blame him for MDA because myself and many board members didn't oppose the hire right off the bat, but this was before it became evident he was clearly a one trick pony. However, now there are clearly roster issues and a pretty big coaching issue as well, so if he reacts accordingly I'll feel more comfortable with his leadership of the franchise in the future.
