    One more time down this well traveled road…. We all pretty much know how the Lakers hiring of Mike D’Antoni went down at this point: In short, Jim Buss wants to bring back more of a “ShowTime” feel and wanted to hire D’Antoni, they went through the motions with Phil Jackson thinking he wouldn’t want…

    Los Angeles Lakers v Regal FC Barcelona

    Lakers owner since 1979 Jerry Buss has been in poor health at points in the last year and the Lakers confirmed the 78-year-old had surgery last week. What kind of surgery? They won’t say. From the Los Angeles Times. “He did have surgery and it went fine,” Lakers spokesman John Black said. “He’s not home…

  3. Kobe Bryant says some really nice things about Jim Buss

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Mike Brown

    Kobe Bryant is too smart to go on the Lakers flagship radio station in Los Angeles and rip his boss. He’d have you read between the lines of a terse statement. But that’s not what he did. Kobe was on the Mason and Ireland show on ESPN Radio in L.A. (John Ireland is the Lakers…

  4. Lakers owner Jerry Buss hospitalized

    Los Angeles Lakers v Regal FC Barcelona

  5. Shaw’s account of leaving L.A. should make Lakers fans nervous

    Phil Jackson, Brian Shaw

    Kobe Bryant and most Lakers fans may not have liked it, but Brian Shaw never really stood a chance to become the Lakers next head coach. Shaw was qualified, and a top Lakers assistant, but his candidacy was doomed because he implied more of the same and Jim Buss wanted to put his stamp on…

  6. Report: By the way, the revenue sharing plan is also a fail

    Lost in the madness that was Thurday’s breakdown in CBA negotiations and the subsequent tommy-gunning by the union was the fact that the Board of Governors received those proposals on revenue sharing Thursday. Sometime in between evening coffee and deciding to let Paul freaking Allen and Dan freaking Gilbert be their representatives to the union…

  7. Kobe finally talks about Mike Brown, and all is right with the world

    Kobe Bryant

    Silence can speak volumes. When Kobe Bryant refused to talk about the hiring of Mike Brown, it had less to do with the hire than how it went down. First, Kobe was on record as a Brian Shaw backer. Second, he wasn’t even consulted or told about the hire — a consideration top stars all…

  8. Lakers’ Jeanie Buss will not rule out contraction

    Jan 20, 2011, 8:15 PM EDT

    Jeanie Buss

    Contraction talk has become the cockroach of the Collective Bargaining Agreement talks — it will not die. No matter what. This time it was Lakers Vice President Jeanie Buss. Yes, she also shacks up with some guy named Phil Jackson, but make no mistake she runs the business end of the Lakers and is the…

    And we have another soon-to-be member of our new reality series Lakers Wives… Sasha Vujacic is engaged to tennis star Maria Sharapova, something confirmed by Lakers.com’s Mike Trudell.

    New television show most often pitched at Lakers games this season? A reality program called “Lakers’ Wives” because now you can throw R&B singer Monica into the mix. Well, soon anyway, but Monica and Shannon Brown are engaged. She tweeted over the weekend a picture of her new ring (and Prince-like hair), thanking her supporters…

  11. Jeanie Buss: "Phil will be coaching next year, somewhere"

    Apr 29, 2010, 2:45 AM EDT

    Forget The Real Housewives of Orange County. Heck, forget the South Fork Ranch and Dallas. The Buss family soap opera is far more delicious and entertaining. In our latest episode, Jeanie Buss — the daughter with the business mind and the posed-for-Playboy body, who is dating the head coach of daddy’s franchise — told ESPNLosAngeles…
