this needs to get off my chest: jeanie buss is driving this franchise into the ground. in the time that she has led the lakers since the great dr. jerry buss passed, the freaking CLIPPERS have managed to go from being better than us as a perennial title contender (with CP3 and blake), completely collapse (while we sucked), rebuild, and now become better than us. this dumb broad has been ruining our franchise for nearly 6 years, probably more. i'm sick of her getting a free pass from most fans - what has she ever accomplished on her own without her dad gifting to her? her dad let her run a tennis "team", and she tanked a freaking roller derby team. "bUt jEAniE hAs an MbA!" 

 

jeanie extended kobe for far too much and for far too long after his achilles injury - "don't worry about that cap space stuff" (http://www.espn.com/...y?id=10641353).she cries in public interviews for no reason other than being put on the defensive, rightfully so. she turned us into the laughingstock of the NBA with her pathetic "stayD12" hashtag campaign. she pitched free agent after free agent on "hollywood" over what anyone with half a brain would think NBA players want to hear about during a job search: BASKETBALL. she fired our PR guy and runs the least effective comms team in all of the NBA, and has morons and lackeys like ramona clean up her mess regularly. she "leads" through (failed) marketing gimmicks. she keeps clown coaches around for far too long. she hires clown team presidents (*ahem* magic). now she's clearly letting leGM, leDIVA, leDIPSH*T seize control of the franchise. she cries "fake news" at totally legit trade rumors...instead of thinking of a better way to handle the AD trade fallout in the media?!?!

 

the fish rots from the head down. dr. buss must be rolling in his grave. the perils of being loved, successful, and rich - you inevitably have some dumbass kids. the lakers will continue to suck as long as this bonehead bimbo is in charge of the team, along with the two dolts in magic and lebron that are jokers masquerading as "businessmen" running the show. all talk, ZERO substance. god save us all.

Exactly correct, plus she has done a fine job at uniting Laker greats like Magic and Lebron.   We should have tried harder to get Jerry West.  The fact that he went to the Clippers does not suggest that they are "better" than us, but he seems to be doing a good job there with making moves, draft picks, etc... it's possible that Jerry West may give the team some credibility.   

 

LeBron gives an organization instant credibility, kind of like a Jerry West.  Tough he's "just a consultant" with the Clippers, he's still a powerful person to have anywhere in your front office.

I actually agree.

 

Lakers need to start hiring people that know what the hell they're doing instead of guys that are connected to the team in some way.

Jesse Buss President and Ryan West GM. Coincidentally the guys running the scouting department, which is the best part of the franchise.

I don't like the derogatory language, but I agree with the bottom line you were trying to deliver.

you're a lunatic. i bet you're the person jeanie is commissioning to build a mockup of lebron and lavar's statue.

ownership breakdown:

 

Buss family (jeanie) - 66%

Philip Anschutz - 27%

Patrick Soon-Shiong - 4%

Ed Roski Jr. - 3%

 

it's a damn shame she seized control of the team the way she did, but now that she bears full responsibility for the clown show then fans should call her out. sell her stake to a competent and willing owner.

Her biggest mistake was having Magic and Pelinka run the show.  Pelinka is hated around the league and Magic Johnson shows his cards before even putting down a bet.

 

It was clear that getting Lebron meant Walton's style of play and these young kids were not going to mesh with Lebron, so what did the do? Grab a whole bunch of 1 year contracts and not one of them a legit shooter.

 

It's time to build a TEAM, get players who are staying here 3-4 years.

you can't own a basketball franchise and set the expectation that you will have nothing to do, or zero knowledge of basketball operations. then on her twitter page, she writes that she won't talk about basketball. yet she comes out in the media 3 weeks after a botched trade and calls it "fake news" in a pathetic effort to save face?? none of this logic is coherent.

She hasn't delivered and really has no clue about running a Basketball team.  At least Kupcake and Jimmy tried to make the right moves (except coaching smh)

 

What is it with this team and getting a coach who will be here for a long time and bring W's?

Nepotism has been the downfall of many huge organizations. That’s why most publicly traded companies have huge boards of directors to get rid of incompetent bad hires.

How is an owner going to step down?  The owner isn't going to sell the team b/c they aren't meeting fan expectations.  This is still a business.

Jeanie Buss is the equivalent of Steve Balmer when he was head of Microsoft. Ironically, Balmer learned to trust the guys who knows his stuff hence hired Jerry West.

Ryan West and Jesse Buss. Let these cats run the show. I am just saying. They have given the Lakers good players during hte draft. I wonder how they'd do with total control over personnel.

MambaMentality has the right to be angry.

 

But in reality, these issues happened WELL before she took over. The problems started right after Shaq was traded. Since Shaq was traded and until Kobe retired, the best draft pick we got was Andrew Bynum. All our late first round and second round picks were shot until recently. In reality, the Lakers issues were masked by Kobe's greatness and the Memphis Grizzlies giving us prime Pau Gasol for free.

I'm trying to have a positive outlook on the whole situation. Is it possible that the Lakers know they won't win the championship this year so they decided to tank the season. It allows them to be in the lottery to get a high draft pick to possibly offer the Pelicans for AD or just have another asset.
