Maybe not a bimbo, but dumb. Source? I've heard her speak.
Since when did having a degree in business qualify anyone to run a major sports franchise? Dr. Buss, if I recall, was a PhD trained chemist who made his money through real estate. For as good of a businessman as he was, one of his greatest mistakes was leaving the franchise to Jeanie and Jim. I suppose that's what happens when you want to keep family control of the franchise, but Jeanie or Jim's moves are the reason we're the laughingstock of the NBA.
“Jeanie: With the Steve Nash situation, I think we did everything in good faith. We sacrificed to get him by giving up draft picks. We made sure he was one of the top-15-paid players at his position, and we hired a coach that specifically suited his style of play. So from our point of view, we did everything right. You go in with good intentions, and it didn’t work out.”
"Jeanie: Any free agent that would be afraid to play with Kobe Bryant is probably a loser, and I'm glad they wouldn't come to the team."
What kind of businessperson speaks like this? Time and time again, Jeanie has made basketball decisions on "good faith" and "good intentions." The nicest people in the world are not necessarily competent.
To add to the comedy, Magic Johnson. Grade A blowhard with a pearly white smile. Source? I've heard him speak, and I've seen his Twitter.
Every move these people are making is to maximize their cut once the team is eventually sold. Hopefully to someone competent.
