Listen: Phil Jackson, Kurt Rambis And President Of Basketball Operations discussed on Sunday Night Baseball - Mets at Braves
"Association and more specifically the Los Angeles, Lakers and Los Angeles Times report and basketball insiders and all the rest. And he said, what do you think about this? If you're an NBA fan or particularly a Lakers fan. That what he's hearing. What he's hearing mean it's going to happen. That they're not going to hire a president of basketball operations, which is absurd and ask backwards and counterproductive, and we'll just get them deeper into this mess that they're already in. They're going to hire a coach before they hire a president of basketball operations, which of course, as I said his ass backward. But they're not gonna hire a PB. Oh, they're going to turn the whole thing over to rob Pelinka who by all accounts. At least everything I've read. And I know even Stephen a Smith on ESPN he said in twenty five years of covering the NBA. He has never seen or heard of a front office executive that is despised and disliked and people have no respect for as much as rob Pelinka. It's amazing. In not so him. But from other sources of well as well, we're hearing the same thing. They are actually going to turn the whole franchise over to and another thing that was disturbing. And I and I like Kurt Rambus a lot. I used to do a show. It was once a week for an hour with Kurt Rambis Jeanie Buss every week like both of love, gene, zanies, the salt of the earth. Nicest sweetest person you'll ever meet in your life. I like Curtiss. Well, good sense of humor. Good guy. Nothing against him. Personally. He doesn't have any front office experience.

And again, I like her too I've met her, but I can give me an example of Linda or Kurt Rambis wanting an MBA franchise winning championships drafting great players signing big time for agents, succeeding coaches. What's the track record here? What's Phil Jackson's track writer? Phil jackson. Evidently is another advisor could bus even though they're not dating anymore. Phil Jackson will be the last person on earth. I would take one word of advice from when it came to front office decisions hiring presidents of basketball operations. You're going to take his advice with the job. He did with the New York. Knicks. He was awful. He was a disaster with the Knicks. Why would I listen to him here? Here's where zany bus needs to step up and be a businesswoman. And do what's best for the franchise nuts? What's not? What is best for her friends and family C needs to ignore? Phil jackson. Phil I used to love you. I still do. We're still friends. You're a failure. As a president of basketball operations in New York. I'm not listening to you. I'm the owner your not. I'm not listening to you Koby Bryant. You were a great player. You have zero front office experience. You've never run a franchise. Why would"
