According to Jeanie.

Jeanie also remained tight lipped on whether she thought Carmelo was coming to the Lakers and if their plan is gonna be to take someone from another team or sign free agents, and what is preferable whether it was in the draft or free agents from she stuttered a bit and went "eh.. d. well.. mep...  Mitch is.....very good at putting pieces together and making trades" in a delayed way saying if you know what I mean, sort of like she knows more than she puts on.  

When asked "Who's the next Lakers star?"

Jeanie said "He's out there...a kid that's watched Kobe Bryant playing while he was growing up is gonna want to come wear the purple and gold. We will have to create the best possible situation whether we draft him or whether we trade for him, or whether we scoop him up as a free agent."

But she wants Kobe to reach the 20 year mark with the Lakers and says "it will be something that will never be seen again especially in this new CBA"

Also said she felt like Jerry Buss would have had a better relationship with Dwight and said Jerry was the "best closer in the game" when it comes to woo'ing free agents.

Said she "understands" why fans hated the billboard and she understands how fans say it's not the "Laker" way. 

But Jeanie said she wants fans to understand that they lost the man who made the "Laker way" in Jerry Buss so that they are all trying to adjust to being without him.  :(   Could tell in her voice how much she missed him :byecry:

No problem :)

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."
