New week, new Buss; Johnny Buss blogs about KB leaving?

Well a new week and yet, new Laker drama. How fitting. While this week doesn’t have any Jeanie, Jim, or Jerry Buss. A new Buss emerged regarding the tense Kobe Bryant situation out here in Los Angeles straight from his myspace as ESPN reports:

Johnny Buss, the oldest son of Lakers owner Jerry Buss, sent a bulletin to friends on his MySpace.com page that contained a peculiar reference to the team’s nine-time All-Star.

“If you’ve been following the Kobe drama, I want to let you know it’s not really drama … sometimes we all need to make a change in our lives and that’s all it is,” Buss wrote. “Popular or unpopular, when it’s time, it’s time. Good luck Kobe wherever you go!”

A freelance photographer, Johnny Buss is not part of the Lakers’ front office and holds no decision-making authority in the day-to-day operations of the franchise.

Chris Manning is a co-owner and video producer for TheLakersNation.com. In addition to his "LD2k" fan-video productions, Chris is working as the "Production Manager" for HS3; A Digital, Brand Strategy and Marketing company based in L.A. which represents the digital entities of numerous high-profile athletes. You can follow him on Twitter for a wide array of sports/Lakers talk!

    Why is this family determined to push Kobe to ask for a trade? Do they have something against winning? Why not just let it die. Don’t they relize what KOBE said is true. You know what they say the truth hurts. PLEASE Buss’s GROW UP!!!

    If this is true, the Buss family should forfeit the Lakers organization to GetGarnett.com and let true fans run this team. ‘Cause all this drama is getting ridiculous. We don’t know who to believe anymore. sigh

    it is a conspiracy. see the nba final is so weak that it doesn’t get enough rating. so the nba league do the next best thing, sell rating, yes! rating is a business and it can be bought and sold like hot cakes. the media will bite on anything that can bring in rating. kobe is the no. catch of them all…

    Why do you even post this? It’s getting stupid just posting things that come out of the field regarding the Lakers. this has no meaning in the Lakers situation.

    GetGarnett should be about news and REAL NEWS.

    i hate that family

  • lakerfan81

    Just remember that to he Buss’s the lakers are a buisiness and a rather
    lucrative one. This is just the media biting on anything and everything trying to make some hype. Until a trade takes place everything is just rumors

  • Mr RiCo
