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.
