"Sports cards. There was a youth football drill this week that went viral. And now the coaches are under major fire. The Pac 12 has a new commissioner and Tom Brady Sr is ready for Sunday night. All of that coming up this morning on the show. Any of those topics sound good to you? Appetizing, palatable 855 to 1 to four CBS 855 to 1 to 4 to 27 or on Twitter D A. On CBS. I am laughing because the last message in our group chat yesterday morning when we left the show was Sam Tweeting quote. I can all but confirmed it was a sabotage this morning. As within the last hour, Nate Abner's Twitter account has liked to different posts. Woz it Sabah Tosia on the hands of Mariah as looking Looking for his replacement. So look bad when he's out much like Mariah as claimed. Bill Belichick was doing to Matt Patricia purposefully grooming a guy to fail when he left to make him walk better. That's the question this morning on the show was that take this weak points, but a long week. Spin along with a lot has happened. It's been a long week for Jerry West is well because Jeannie Buss recently was asked who her top five Lakers People I can't even say players because she included a coach of all time are And the logo. Jerry West was unhappy. Did Jeannie Buss disrespect the logo? It is where we begin your cold Open. I saw the other day who Jeannie Buss is. Made a statement that the five most important Lakers, um Yes. One of the most offensive things I've ever heard in my life really offensive. I was going to ask you about it. Okay. So five she named the five she named were Kareem Magic, Kobe LeBron And Phil Jackson. Right, Well, this this place is where I was there a lot of a lot of times and, uh Lost success. And what curious be curious to know why. If they would have that success if I hadn't been there, and we had Pete, we had a little small star and I don't ever take credit for stuff. I don't When I was around. Maybe I was just a good luck charm. Okay, But I do know that when this thing fell apart, there was a lot of years that they weren't very good. Well, Jerry, let me be Frank. I didn't want to cut him with. Um, I think in listening to that what she said. I think she was caught off guard. You know, just to her defense a little bit because she left off magic, too. And then they secure. What you didn't say Magic. Oh, yeah. Magic should be no more So I believe she She was just just a little Harry. They're so second. What's that? Don't wait for a second. It's amazing, sensational, dramatic, heart rending. It's d A's top story. He goes, It's your cold Open. Wow. That is Jerry West, with Peter Vesti, the long time NBA writer on the Legend's studio podcast. Jerry West just said. It's one of the most offensive things I've ever heard of. One of the most offensive things I've ever heard. Is Jeanie bus, leaving off Jerry West from her top five Lakers ever. Now to be fair to Jeanie Buss. This is a difficult list to make because she didn't even include Elgin Baylor. Will Chamberlain shack. So there's great players all time great players that didn't make the list as well as Jerry West. But here's the thing. West is right. He belongs on this list. He belongs on the list of the most important Lakers ever because Jerry West, not only Was a standout Hall of Fame legendary player for the Lakers that helped bring them their first championship in Los Angeles. And was one of the league's first huge superstars. But also he was a crucial vital executive for the Lakers on their second dynasty in the two thousands. I mean, Jerry West was the brains. That drafted slash traded for the rights to Kobe Bryant on draft night. Jerry West. Not only was a player, but he's probably the most important executive in Lakers franchise history as well. And the guy that brought in Phil Jackson. So Jerry West has absolutely every right to be bothered by this annoyed by this and say it's offensive list without him on it. Yes. Here's the thing about Jeanie Buss is list You can't argue Karim. You can't argue magic. You can't argue Kobe LeBron's not on that list. LeBron is not one of the five most important Lakers players ever. And you guys know I've got nothing but respect for LeBron James. I think LeBron is short changed many times over with the type of of Description and discussion we have around LeBron. I think he's one of the greatest players ever probably one of the two greatest players ever and that His resume is unassailable, but he's not one of the five most important Lakers ever. He's been there for three years for crying out loud. Three freaking years. Yes, you want a championship? Yes, he has brought a title back to Los Angeles for the first time in a decade plus.

She was on July second, so it was right before the weekend and I re tweeted it for those that didn't get a chance to see as you can. you can see it at Sodano. And I thought. She made an unbelievably compelling argument. I thought it was fantastic on her part. It was talking about at the time. Nike and Fedex and Pepsi. Ties with Washington.

"Right Halfback town, but what about just the culture of the sort of the organization? How important is that? You know Intel. I'd like using that. Word the culture. Didn't really didn't have.

And how like not only from the the basketball side, but like every aspect of the organization? Everybody's sat up a little bit straighter like magic. You know it's like we're here to do something now. This is what we're. Missiles wet committed to and and. He, said US off on that path, and now I really see how the culture has come around in terms of. You. Know bringing somebody like Lebron in than the players at WanNa. Come and play with somebody like Lebron. And the coaches that we have the coaching staff and what they're all about and what they're trying to accomplish, so yes, I think we managed to change our culture. It took time to implement, but now we're now. Were people know who we are? They know the kind of basketball team. We WanNA. Be the kind of players that we're going to bring you in, and now it all feeds on itself now we we've got the pieces now. The pieces could grow and he bigger I I think Jeanie and Ali. That's what. What the last dance has shown me yet again you can have everything in place that you want. But if you don't have the the one player in the locker room that holds everybody accountable that he's kind of the last. Say you know I. Just have not seen many winning teams or teams that go on long runs. Don't have that one guy that even when the coach walks out of the door, everybody's still accountable to that guy over in the corner. That's probably because he's such. A veteran has three lockers. Three locker mentality if if you know it was that way with the cardinals with Albert pujols holster it's that what you know. Whatever these guys in their prime or Gretzky in his day or whatever it might be that players can get away with whatever little stuff they can get away with, but there is a line, and that line is drawn by that guy in the corner, not by the head coach not by the GM, not by the not by the media. It's drawn by that guy who's setting the example everyday if you don't have that. You're dead and I I just I. Just don't think you're GonNa win especially with all of the distractions that exists today. This is not nineteen sixty. If you don't have somebody that the players are accountable. On their level you're not GONNA win. You. Is that your experience, Janney? I I do think that you need that. That guy in the locker room that is gonNA say what needs to be sad and that you know to get guys. To Lake follow suit, and Kobe was that Guy Lebron is I. Know Kobe was in the gym.

Regan and a salary cap and you know so many different factors than you know back in nineteen eighty but I think all for the health of the game. I'll it's healthy all right. Well I hope you guys get to complete the season I really do because this was a great one in you have many great ones ahead of you all your dog. A sweet dog. Loris will thank you so much for taking your time. We know you're busy. And and here's the deal. Not For me to talk about comedy comedy. Because we met you week we got to you through Let's let's do got to do through Jeff? Die AND JEFF IS SAID. Who's a friend of ours in and also knows his sports great like so funny and and he is like she loves comedy she. I think she knows who we are. He's like yes she knows you didn't show on. Espn classic called cheap seats where we made fun of all games forever. So if you're in the sports industry you have to know who we are but like we're sitting there going like how that's insane that she would know who we are. Will it actually makes sense? Especially if you like homework you have to win. This all gets dealt with you have to. Here's what we're GONNA do. You'RE GONNA come see US do standup set. And then you me Randy. Jeff Dyer are going to go to Dan. Tana's needs stakes late all old school. I love data that I had senior data. Dan Tana's like that to me is like if I walked in and he wasn't there I was like wait. What's going on Dr Busek? What's your level comedy? Did you just were you around it or you're just a fan of it or have you gone out and seen a lot of comedy. I you know I I truly appreciate Schumer in and I'm very shy and I you know I'm it's hard for me to do any kind of public speaking I really. I really like try to stay on chromatic because it's hard on me but I realized that if I can be a little bit more funny and I could get laughs but it it it really kind of calms my nerves and and you know allows people to be more open. And I and I found that humor really allows you to broach highness sensitive subjects and be able to work through things and you know that kind of led me to like really appreciating. Stand up comedy because I think there's no more vulnerable place for a person to be that onstage and to talk about the things that that you know they fear or they that are on their mind and You know it's I just think everybody you know can can benefit from being a little bit. Funnier our sense of humor When a approaching things? That are terrifying. That's the best way to handle it. But it's so funny 'cause like sports like basketball. It's every premise. You put out to an audience. It's like you're putting up a shot and you hope it goes and you hope it comes close if it airs and you have an airball. The audience not laughing is like them chanting. Airball which is ripped dreyer slow. It is but you know you gotta put yourself out there you again. Jordan said you make zero percent of the shots you don't take and so you have to take those shots and it's throw your annual throw yourself like athletes we've talked to a lot of athletes before and say it's similar you put yourself in the fire every night doesn't matter what you've done you know any tight like we've walked onstage talked about this before too we've had we've been doing comedy for thirty years. We've killed big rooms like huge arenas of people we've done massive shows we've done. Tv shows everything Two months ago we had to go up at the comedy store in tests asset that we were doing for Conan. O'brien shows we had adjust to a TV set which you know in a nightclub is sometimes restrictive and we did that set on Conan two nights later killed so it went wealth or proud of it but two nights before we go to backstage at the comedy store in the main room. And WHO's on stage with Joe Rogan now? Joe rogan fantastic. But the whole crowd was there to see him. The show was thirty minutes late. He was supposed to go for comics earlier but he turns out he was going right before us. There is no host so as soon as he finishes it said everyone in that room is like Don. They don't WanNa hear another word from another human being. Joe Rogan is not meant to be followed period. All right so he gets introduces. Us does a nice intro which no one could give a shit about us. We Walk onstage and we have to do this set now you know maybe it would have been smarter prestigious crowd first and then do this EPA. Were like we got so we get on stage. And we'd be this said and it we eat it it. It's like throwing upside Grizz and we're like wait. Are we funding anymore? What the hell were so mad. It's so hard. We're freaking out. We know so much that we went up stairs into the belly room at the Communist. Or which is the tiny room upstairs and there was another show going on. We're like we. We gotta get on the show just to like cleanse. What just happened down there? It's like staying in the gym and shooting. Your for eleven in the first half of the coach is those keeps shooting and then you make four shots all right. I'm fine may just need to lake sink a few and so we went upstairs and did the said and I was so funny. One of the microphones wasn't working so I'm like holding it like this and we did. The Senate was great and we walked out of there going like okay. Thank God but there is but that is the danger of doing that. And that's the high wire. Act that professional athletes and you know. Special COMEDIANS. Walk. Every time we go out there is like it could fall in that. Is THE PEOPLE. Enjoy watching that too. 'cause they're like can you sustain it up there? She's a blast and I. It's like I miss going to comedy clubs again. When is that GONNA COME BACK? Just a vaccine. It'll come back when there's a vaccine and we can all can hang out again and if that's the worst case scenarios it comes back in the spring and which would be a bummer next spring. But you know I look forward to that because for us again not to bring it back to sports but so much of it is. It's US going to the comedy store. It's US standing in the hallway behind the original room and talking to neal Brennan and seeing Dave Chapelle. Just walk in and you know talking all of our friends. Who are you know? Seeing Jeff Diet Talking Anderson Tina and talking about the boss Jeff Ross and just gagging around going in the kitchen and doing bits like that is the whole night. Then you go up on stage and you have your set for fifty minutes. And that's a joy because you're just happy that you're even up in this line of people maybe your name on the Marquee and that's why people are coming in and that feels good but the camaraderie with the teammates with your with your crew with the other comedians. The other professionals that is equally as fun as doing it for the fans and doing it for the people so we miss it too. We miss it too. I love that you're into comedy. I love it you know. It's like I ended up doing to take a comedy class in doing an open mic. And how was that? Was that was that. It's like one of those things that I'm glad I did it. And you know and learning to write your own material like I went to class called pretty funny women and it's for women to to learn to to do stand up and you know again not all are going to be standing meetings but we can all use it in our lives. Whatever we do as a profession and you know even if you're a parent having a sense of humor is good with your kids too so it you know it's it's something That like I said it just I really admire.

"Was like a long way to Eddy S. Anthony. I like it. Well guarded my question as we sit in this unknown in. Maybe you know more than we do. How would you if given like? Let's just say you have a way to do this. You have a way to comeback and Adams over calls you after this interview and says all right Jeanie. I'm GonNa let your the one. How do we end the season? How do we combat? What do we do? How do we run the play offs in a perfect world? How would you do it and you can't do a full layoffs? You can't do it as is not going to speculate on any of this. I mean I'm I'm we're one team in a League of thirty and we have to. We have to look at how all of this is. GonNa play out You know and we're not only in the United States. We have a team Canada as well. And so all these factors are gonNA figure into what we're going to be able to do so to even start talking about that would be kind of just a waste of time but I wanNA see us finish the season. I WANNA have a conclusion. I would like us to not have to cancel any of the Games but none of that is no right now so I wanna go through that but I would like to see a resolution to to the season. I feel I could ask for us. You know fattening follow the NBA's pretty closely for the last. Like thirty years of our lives. It feels like this season among of all the seasons spelt the most wide open as we head into the playoffs and obviously front runners. Like the Lakers. And and I would put Milwaukee in there too in the east but there was excitement building. I mean you can even take it from the All Star game which I feel like this format of the All Star game before fourth. Quarter the All Star game was. That's the greatest all star game. We had period. I mean your guide makes the winning free throw. I mean come on. He was very exciting. From that point of view I I have to say I was in Orlando at nineteen ninety two when Magic Johnson made his comeback and that that was the special bigger so many bigger more reasons but yes in terms of like the competition in the fun watching the players you know interact in work. Their butts off to win that game. The fans inflate layers. Arguing calls arguing calls in an all star game. Come on it's like it really. It really was also game is such a hard thing to crack. 'cause YOU WANNA to celebrate the best players for being who they are and being you know achieving that level and while it may not need the games may not mean something in the what you say. At the end of somebody's career. He was a ten time. All Star. it out. I mean he was a he was a eight all star Games. Roy was the MVP of the All Star game. Those things actually means something. When a player's career is overseas can't discount the all star game ever but it's a very difficult format to crack in any sport baseball hockey. And so I just think you guys again you guys got it right this year in a very very cool way that actually included the fans that I thought man. This is the way it's gotTa be in the other leagues are GonNa have to follow that for sure Let's talk just because we've lived in La since ninety nine and you know we. We came from somewhere else so many people I know you know this like L. A. is transplant city. People come from other places. I think it's hard to have a sports organization because so much sports growing up in Saint Louis being Saint Louis Cardinals fans. You know seeing how that get hassled on from generation to generation. It's hard debt. Like I looked at the king success in two thousand ten two thousand and two thousand twelve and I was like the La Kings have rabid fans. They have twenty thousand of them in their all in this arena right now okay whereas I don't know how deeply it goes. I just don't know how deeply it. How far back. It goes generation. The Lakers and the dodgers are those generational organizations. I mean. It's almost like against all odds in town that that would do that. How how do you guys do the winning? Or how does that happen? Where you guys can supplant implant yourself into the La Culture well in instant. That's exactly why my dad bought the team was because he was not born here in La But he he visited as a child in his head. You know some Damn live in Los Angeles in so when he had the opportunity and resources resources to do so he did and He he just. He loved his new hometown and he wanted. La To have a team that they could be proud of because he felt that there was such a bias in media or east coast that you never ally teams. Didn't get the respect around in all the professional sports and so he wanted to buy the Lakers and and make Allah proud and that was kind of his gift to the city that accepted him as their own. And so I think that because he had the mindset of what it means to be transplanted person in La. And how a team like the Lakers. Especially when they're winning can unite a community that is very spread out very diverse And you know I don't know Certainly the Lakers. Had you know some the they'd WanNa Championship in La? Before my dad was the are so You know an having a player like a wilt Chamberlain and Jerry West and Gail Goodrich and and you know Elgin Baylor all these great players. You know. Maybe that that helped to but certainly The eighties was kind of attorney. Roy when You know things were were topped in. La and buried divided gangs and You know it it. The the Lakers winning really Matt something to people in terms of what it means to make Los Angeles your home. Yeah I mean it. It is amazing in in in that context. You just see how important Johnson was. Okay getting him from Michigan State in seventy nine winning banning eighty with him. I mean you just to kick start that whole thing. You are a kid as it's going on. How are you viewing it through the eighties? As as it's all happening and it's all going down you know it was. It was showtime and you know it was all just on new to me and Not Really Understanding. You know what sports could mean an and you know like the environment was changing so much. I remember You know back in the early eighties you know you. You didn't show your home games on television. You didn't broadcast your home games because that would cut into your ticket. Sales guys could stay at home and watch the game. They were you know. Buy A ticket so you know when Dr Bas decided. Hey I'm selling up forum and I'd really like for everybody who wants to see the Lakers play at the forum at home. We should really broadcast the games and it was kind of unheard now. But you know that that's kind of what was to him was to you. Know he said like genie. Just think I what I've done is I've increased the capacity of the forum so that now the everybody who wants to see a game can see the game and that was just a different way of thinking. So you know He. He was brilliant For so many reasons in terms of just being a mathematical genius but you know he also had a passion of a fan and that's the fans knew that he cared about it in in a maybe every year. You don't win but they know that he's doing everything he can to get the team in a position to win so growing up in Saint Louis with no NBA team and watch those finals. Like it could not have been more different. You got the parquet floor of Boston Garden. And it's not like the air conditioning. Broken there air conditioning's broken. It's dark it's like I don't know it just felt like this old building that was like hundreds of years old. Then then you come to L. A. and it's like yellow. It's bright and like feels like their windows everywhere and you can see you know what. I mean like for kids. Were just seeing this going like okay. Here's the old established than here's the other in. We're rooting for you. Do you WanNa root for the team. That's lighting it up and running a fast break like every ten seconds and dunking. Yeah it was. It became a brand not just the La before all the disenfranchise across countries. Sports fans like us were ten eleven twelve thirteen years old. That's it become you immediately. Take to a team right. Mazing aesthetically as well as the team itself was built in a way that was it. Was you know they say styles make fights you know in in heavyweight boxing in two different styles makes a fight? And that's exactly what it was in the eighties you had you know the Byrd. Dj Mikhail parish versus showtime. Just amazing. I mean it's it's amazing that you live through that and now you are getting to carry that on today with a whole new.

"Support and help people cope through it and it is a priority of this of our league and of art of our team especially to You know To value that Those resources anticipate our players as best as we can. Yeah I mean I don't WanNa get too deep into the Kobe of it. All but that was he. He was really becoming dat sort of elder statesman. So funny because we think of players who they were at their peak so I think of like to me. Obviously Kobe. Shaq was just unbelievable. Time Phil Jackson. Kobe shack late nineties. Two thousand like that. That team was the team but then colby coming back and winning. The back to backs likes years later after shack and one one on his own way. Dwayne Wade that to me was the absolute definition of that. Dude's career as a player. And what he meant the Lakers in the organization on the whole you know and then to think of him at that point you cut it off. And you're like he's that guy who could not be stopped. He's scoring eighty three point. Eighty four points in the game but he was really becoming the elder a great elder statesman and and this just embassador for the League when he had Oscar and all that other stuff. It's a huge hole that cannot be filled. It just is but you know. I think you guys is memory. Lives on and I think you guys are lucky to have a guy like Lebron there who in many ways I see is GonNa be that Guy. I really do feel already. He kind of already is starting to be that right so that guy but he could be that guy I mean I just think it's it it you know if you guys in a terrible situation glad guys have Lebron so so where were you when you found out that you got Lebron. I mean I think I was like everybody else you know just you know Sunday morning and not being able to understand what's being said you know just for the curly Yup. I'm saying go back the year before. Where were you when you heard the news that you had gotten Lebron James at that time? Let's go back to a much happier time because now I mean I know I don't there's no need to needle it but it just it violent. Let's go back to Lebron when you heard the news that he was coming. Because and I mean like and you said you know. We're we're lucky to have Lebron any more. Be Lucky to have he is. He is a leader on and off the court. And what a talent. My Gosh you know when you're in the western conference you don't really appreciate players in the Eastern Conference because we don't see him that much but you know watching Lebron even at practice. He really is in the League of his own but You know hearing that he you know he had met with Magic Johnson and he was very interested in coming and getting the call that he decided that this was the team that he wanted to join Matt. The world to be because It kinda changed people's perception of of our organization and you know trying to get things into a different direction and you know a a lot of people were talking about that. You know low. Broadly Com unless you have these players and plays and l. But He believed in in what magic laid out in front of them which is exactly where how we got to where we are now in terms of the kind of team that we were building and cried offense that we want run it to run and you know so so here we are. You know his vote of confidence kind of let everything else fall and A. How happy are you? That Lavar ball is no longer connected to the. I don't Lavar and in the whole ball family. I you know I appreciate any parent that Is involved really is an and believes and as an advocate for their child is not the way every parent should be and I. I'd got used to that because I when I first got bobbins boards. I promoted tennis events at the forum. The Great Western form and I got to know Richard Williams who is the father of the essence Serena Williams and who later very much believed in the greatness of his daughters even when they were you know twelve thirteen years old he knew that they were going to be a spectacular in. He was right with high lie. Made we're going to start to see the we're going to start to see Lavar ball a lot more with Lamelo. He may be the first or second pick in the draft. You never know you're going to start to see him again. And what type of impact he has on the League but It is it is amazing. What was more difficult last year? Living through having Lebron and not you know Lebron sort of not reaching where he wanted to be. And I'm sure you guys as well or the six years leading up to Lebron you know what I mean. What was harder having Lebron there and not reaching that knowing? Okay if we just have maybe the one more piece. The Anthony Davis piece. We're going to be okay this year in knowing that you get to this place. Was that a difficult year that year. Yeah because I you know. I was anxious to get back into the playoffs and win the play-offs kind of left the pitcher. That was a huge disappointment for me. But it just meant that we have more to do and that we weren't where we needed to be and You know I think also what was distressing You know in that last season before this season was the amount of leaks that were coming out of our and I you know that was a big priority for us to shore up that kind of activity and I. I think we've done a pretty good job getting out of the drama and headlines and just being about the work it feels like when you talk about leaks and things like that. These are issues. I feel like that team didn't have to deal with twenty years ago. Twenty five years ago before twitter before twenty four hour news sources before all that stuff before people could find leverage in the media. Now that really Kinda wasn't a thing I mean. I'm seeing that. Even his documentary about the Bulls in the nineties. It's like I knew Jerry Krause. I knew of that name but I didn't know what was happening between the I didn't know that Jordan would just park his car anywhere in the team. Parking lot just get out. Mock you know what I'm saying. It's different now. You got a camera there. And that's suddenly beamed onto this site onto this blog onto this thing in a way that it wasn't before and I feel like it's probably gotten harder to like run team in a ship now than twenty years ago. Well you know it's it's you know information while wasn't always one hundred percent accurate. The when Steph would leak out and and really be Mike. I don't know who I can trust at. That's terribly undermining or an organization. It's impossible to do business because you don't know who you need to eliminate from the room to get rid of that league and how you know and why. Why is this happening four? Yeah what are they doing it for whether they trying to accomplish and it it it was very disturbing to me and so it's been very refreshing to not have to deal with that this this season you know. It's so interesting because the last the reason why this year was such a great year was that we didn't know what was going to happen. You ask the Lakers. Were on top of the clippers. Were fantastic you could say in the East Toronto Milwaukee Philadelphia could could have had a run there. The heat were playing great. Utah was there were so many great teams wasn't like the last three years when you were just saying to yourself. All right Golden State's GonNa win. You don't WanNa say that at the beginning of fans are saying. I'm sure as an owner. You're not saying that the interesting thing to me is how much layers and teams don't subscribe to that notion like every time a team goes on the court they're like we're GonNa win the Mean that those those Cleveland Lebron Cleveland teams even though they were way undermanned compared to the Golden State Warriors Teams. They're like we're GONNA win. That's what they think in their brain. How isn't that amazing? How athletes kind of have that they put the blinders on in a way that actually I think is good for them. I very sorry that.

"How to do things and I think that While there's challenges along the way in we're like every other team we have to You know play the rules of the collective bargaining agreement and The other rules that are in place to make sure that ever all thirty teams have an ability to compete for a championship and You know so you know you have to take all those factors and then do your best. And it's it's hard to win in this league and you don't do that unless you have talent and that was one of the areas that we wanted to make sure that we The solidified was You know bringing a strong team of talent To give our scouting department Everything that they needed to make sure that we drafted welcome. And then of course with the G. League and developing those players in a way that gives them a seamless transition from g lead to MBA. What I'm curious to hear your perspective on the G. League as you know we're fans the University of Michigan in Michigan's is Lost Five Star. Kid Isaiah Todd and you're seeing other kids going Langham's going to college. I'm going to the G. League and I've heard the argument in many ways that this is good for both sides of the equation. Obviously we lost Michigan. Lost a five star kid. But you've got now guys who don't want to go to college it really just WanNa be. Nba Players who were would have gone to college for a year. Because we're making you and then they they're like okay. I just want to go straight and delete so now college almost kind of levels the playing field a little bit over there as I mean. Was that a conscious decision by the NBA. I think at overtime you know. It's it's important for us to take the responsibility of developing our players and one thing that I learned From Ambler many things from Phil Jackson. But you know you really cannot determine who player is until they're twenty five twenty six years old and everybody matures differently and if you're drafting players at nineteen in now at some point possibly eighteen years old then you have to take accountability for how you know. You're training those those players Giving them the resources allowing them to mature at whatever rate that they need to and You know investing back so I do think it's an obligation not only of Arley but every professional league to have some kind of investment in the future of the players that will be played early. Why do you think the NBA? Which in our opinion the NBA of all the major sports leagues is like the most nimble the most socially conscious I remember when we were in Charlotte and they were. They were the political thing of the bathroom laws. I remember the hair. We're doing comedy. We're doing standup comedy in Charlotte and we're ripping the bathroom. Laws and and some of our getting some blowback from some people in the crowd and we were seeing banners for the All Star game on street lights and then basically NBA is said. Either address this or we're not putting our all star game there and then they pulled it. I thought that was just an unbelievably socially conscious move and the whole league being nimble impressive. Why do you think the NBA is able to be that way whereas other leagues are having a harder time doing that? I think our leadership in terms of our commissioner Adam silver and I think that you know I would say You know I don't know the exact number but more than half. The teams have turned over terms of ownership in the last ten years. Or so. And I think that you have a younger more you know I guess socially responsible you know group of owners investors who believe in what sports can mean to a community and to Really do right by You know doing doing what's right and society and being a leader in that way and we as a league You know encourage our players to have a voice and and also to not have a voice that they don't want to. It's not like you know you're only Drafting people who WanNa be activists in and take those kinds of roles. It's really what however the the player or the front office or whoever the the NBA You know between all the employees of teams and players things like that we we encourage our our people to have an opinion to have a voice and stand up for what they believe in direct contrast to the NFL in the kneeling and all that stuff at the national anthem that to me was it just felt like your league. Yes you stamp in the National Anthem. Your League but it that is it showed how minor that was in comparison to what you allow your players to be able to say and have their voice in I guess locker rooms are smaller in the NBA. And so it's more of a maybe a more of a cohesive group Bud fascinating to me that it can be social such a socially conscious league like that. I wanted to ask about because you know we had gotten to know a Royce white grape player A lot about and in dealt with like anxiety. It's so interesting because now we're shining more of a light on mental health issues and whatnot and players. You know not one is the simple thing of there's so much travel in the NBA. There is so much travel in the idea of like. I can't fly. I have tremendous anxiety from flying it. That's a major part of major stumbling walk. How do you think the NBA League is trying to address that type of thing so that great players like Royce White? Who MAY HAVE ISSUES? You know in terms of mental health things that they're dealing with. How does the League going to move forward? Is that as far as that goes in terms of helping those people out I mean. I think we're a leader in that area as well you know the NBA has a mandate that every team have a mental wellness coordinator in a program that could provide resources to players and to the employees as needed And that's like A. It's a tricky situation to be involved in because a lot of medical activity is covered under Himba laws and You know maintaining a player's privacy is completely important to us but also having those resources and in it for us by example we moved into a new practice facility three years ago and part of that was a partnership with Ucla Health. So now we have the resources of UCLA health As needed and I you know so in the last two or three years that we've been working with them. I've been astonished at how many times they have been a resource that I wouldn't have thought of before in in a circumstance. Excuse me and certainly. We had an enormous tragedy Take place You know it's it's hard for me to talk about small. I'm not sure how much I can talk about You know losing Kobe. Bryant but The the effect on our team and our employees was profound and You know it. It was a blessing to have. Ucla there to help.

And I'm not just saying that because we live in La. We grew up in Saint Louis and we were still super aware of the Lakers in the eighties. Jeanie Buss thank you so much for joining us on the show. How are you thank you for having me? It's a pleasure to be here. Well it is. I mean this year this year was like the best year for the NBA. I thought in memory memory. Yeah in recent memory. It's such a shame that the season had to get cut short because the battle that was going on in La. I mean. We've never seen anything like it. I don't think we've ever because there have been teams. Yes there was the subway series of the Yankees and the mets but they only played in the world series. Like you're in the same conference with the Clippers and going toe to toe. Tell us what that was like this year. Just seen that firsthand right. I mean I think you also have to throw in there the Golden State Warriors. I mean for me. It had been you know. It's been seven years since we've been in the playoffs so we've watched golden state dominate. You know the clippers obviously being really good You know it really was on us to raise our game so that we could be part of the conversation again and so you know the idea that the the Lakers have are at the top of the Western Conference. You know. It's been a in terms of when we could play basketball. We were do pretty hit the first game of the year. You guys played the clippers. Like I can't even remember a first game of an NBA season being that. I'm like we're looking at the Western Conference finals preview right here I mean. I think you wouldn't say that but I'm telling you as a sports fan. I'm watching that and it was exciting. I mean as far as the first game of the season wasn't that incredible. And you know we law so for me an Essen Crystal. Certainly I think that kind of gave us an indication of what we needed to do in the direction to go in and certainly we You know Figured it out and you know as we got later in the season and we were able to. You know to bring our a game when needed to Out Contend with the best team believe I mean I think a huge factor in that is the fact that you can have two superstars having to try and understand how to play with each other and how to complement each other in that. That obviously doesn't happen in game. One that happens in game twenty-five and then builds by game forty and then in game sixty year hopefully clicking on all cylinders getting into the playoffs and now you have you know even in the context of watching this Jordan documentary which I love to get your thoughts on as well Last dance but the fact that Jordan had pippen when Jordan didn't have tippin even when they had won all that those first Games in nineteen ninety seven ninety eight. They were like a foreign fourteen. So you realize how much you know. This is a League of not just one player but you need one. Plus two knockout punches. And then you need amazing robots. Am I right to say that? I mean I I don't set a roster like I'll never be that type of owner. That thinks I'm smarter than the basketball people. But certainly I think what? Ropley has built in terms of our roster and our coaching staff which is You know an elite coaching staff from top to bottom and You know I think. The combination of those two things has really paid off hardest. How hard is that to do though? It's your money and you know what I'm saying like you you you can kind of see you see like Jerry Jones drafting from his yacht. And you're like okay. You clearly tone-deaf in these times to draft from You have a two hundred fifty million out fine. But I'm saying that translates into him being on the field like making decisions and all that other stuff that your team you can do it the way you want. How difficult is it to be hands off enough to just say okay? I delegated you'd be this play operations person. This general manager in this. You'd be the coach and I'll do my thing and provide you with what you need to do to be successful at lucky for me. I learned from you know who might be arguably the most the greatest or most successful owner of all time in Dr Jerry Buss and that was how he put together teams that he was always a presence Which I think is important to the fans and two players and to you know just a landscape that you have engaged owner who cares and is going to put everything that they have in terms of resources to You know Build a team that could contend for a championship so You Know I learned from Dr.

"To the show. Sklar brothers here. We are actually excited to talk sports this week because it feels like some sports has happened over this past week namely the NFL draft will get into that at the top of the show We have an amazing guests on the show with the owner of the Los Angeles Lakers Jeanie Buss Daughter of Dr Jerry. Us and we get into A lot of stuff about the Lakers in interview. We did a few days ago. Abou- He really. She reveals a lot. Jay about you know her a couple of decisions that her father made that she was privy to as a kid in what that was like. And how? That opened up the Lakers organization eighties to all of the city of La and how that really entrenched basically l. a. The Lakers as La team as much as the dodgers fascinating conversation. We'll get to that. And then we have a voicemail later in the show A really fun one that is very relevant to what's going on but like you said. Jay. Let's let's step up at the top and talk about the draft. I watched a lot of it. I watched a lot of day. One day two here. I was the highest rated draft. I think in history right which which is less about the draft more about how much people are starving for new sports content and we said this on another radio. Fifteen point five million viewers just to context. That's unbelievable we said this on another radio show That the draft is all about hope okay and and in this time code. Nineteen in this time of you. Know a lockdown in a lack of sports at a lack hope and a lack of look at the future is going to be so so. This draft is about the future. We were allowed to a lot. We were allowed to fully enjoy the draft for its intended purposes which was to excite you if you're a Cincinnati Bengals van and I you got the guy who you were running for who you thought you were going to get I got. I went back and watched last night. lsu versus Oklahoma in the College Football playoff. What Joe Borough did in that game six touchdowns and ran for one? I mean it was unbelievable but his pocket presence is ability to create when he needed to create his ability to his decision. Making okay decision making is something you can't teach your ability to see the field and make a choice and make a play. Make the athletic. Play that coincides with the right choice that you just made this kid has it all. I think right away in the same way. This is gonNA sound like a bold prediction in the same way than Andrew. Luck came in and made Indianapolis a playoff team. I think that as soon as we can play football again as soon as we have the NFL. Joe Borough Makes Cincinnati Bengals with AJ Green on the outside with other weapons. Joe Borough makes the Cincinnati Bengals a playoff team. Don't forget they have Joe Mixon who is ready to do what he needs to do. If he has to punch out a woman at a bar he'll come on a Taco Bell So but the idea that he has weapons and whatnot. And it's not an organization that is perennially two in fourteen. Like you said you know the reason that interlock was able to step in and make them a contender right away. Is that the whole reason. They got Andrew. Luck was that the year before they lost paid so they lose. Peyton manning and I went one in fifteen next year they get the top pick and they get luck so now the bengals have the top pick and they have a chance to immediately change your organization. This is not a guy who's going to sit behind someone for a long time before the Ravens are going to be great because they figured something out with Lamar Jackson. They had a great draft the Ravens in my opinion again picked so smart allowed the players. They selected but the truth matter. Is You wind up. What was interesting for me is that the data felt like a day one day because there were so many names coming off the board names from Lsu names from guys watch into the NCAA play offs that were just the College Football Playoffs. That were so. These are big time names. Going to teams. Like Xavier mckinney the safety for Alabama the fact that he went on the second day and Midway through the second day. You're like this a first day guy going on the second day so a lot of teams have a lot of reason to feel good the interesting thing of course to me and I know it was you as well was the fact that we're doing this at home. And you know we're cutting to the coaches at at their sequestered in. Their homes quarantined in their homes for all. Did every there were there. Were some funny moments that you just don't see at the funniest I like the girlfriends sitting on the player's lap and then the mom yanking her out throwing her out of the frame it. Basically a foreshadow of what's going to happen to her anyway she didn't even know that Mommy. Mommy whispered inner ear. He's GonNa Cheat on you right exactly. You're done. You're out like she just said you can stay there now but and you'd better enjoy this 'cause he's going to cheat on you later. That's what she gets at a CD. Lamb who was on his phone and then his girlfriend tried to grab other phone in his hand and he grabbed it right back. There was that great moment. There's just a moment of like looking at Bill Belichick's dining room in your Why does he have him leading his letting his dog up on the chair which I was like I would not have pegged him as a guy who let pets go up on the chick house. He'd probably run a tighter ship and like humor like a little snap. Why did he have that Break Front? Do you know what I'm saying? I kept on asking of. This is the way I feel whenever I watch like like. Wh What's on Nancy Pelosi's fridge range from like behind your wives chuck. Why did Chuck Schumer not shut the doors to his hallway? Shot the hallway door alway doors Schumer. Let's just shut the doors if you're going to interview but that's to me was if as anything and the best part in will do this lasting. We'll get into the show Was Mike rebel again? These are not camera people. We're trying to do our podcast. We do our podcast. Our daily podcast. J You and I basically we need. The help of Brandon are wonderful engineer. But we have to do a lot of heavy lifting that we ourselves aren't prepared to do in a lot of you make mistakes. We made mistakes Every other day we make a mistake. A fifteen point six million people. I wish we're watching our podcast. They're not fifteen point. Six MILLION PEOPLE. Watch Mike Gabel and in the corner of my rebels room Off of a mere looking down the hall saw his son taking a shit door open. Who I know it's your house but who crafts with the door open when there are people over that is. That's the lead. That's a level of confidence that I can't remember have robes there. I will never approached that level of confidence but if you freeze the frame you will see Mike. Vrabel who many people said. Tennessee had a good draft. But some people said they kinda you know. They should the draft toilet. You Shit you open the door and let everyone see what you did a little bit. Mike Variables on so just understand your framing. This is a great lesson in life understand. What's in your frame understand what you're projecting out to the world once you do that then You can understand that then and only then will you keep your house in order. You hear that Mike Gravel all right. That's our top segment when we come back after the break the Great Jeanie Buss owner of the Los Angeles Lakers joins us to sit down and talk all things Lakers and the NBA and her father is a great interview stick around. We'll be back with more from the cheap seats right after this.

Frank Vogel Set to Be Lakers Head Coach; Kidd Tapped as Assistant
"Frank Vogel hired as the head coach of the Lakers. They went with auction see, and that's pretty hard to pal it. If you're a Lakers fan going with action, see as I said earlier, the two coaching searches in Los Angeles UCLA in the Los Angeles, Lakers planning on co authoring a book on how to conduct a coaching search because both went very very smoothly. But the story coming out of this and even after the Magic Johnson resignation and all that and now with going with option C where you got money. Wave's turning your down for the sons Tyler say, no, I don't want the three year deal and the Jason Kidd becoming an assistant because Vogel acquiescence said. Yep. A I'm fine with that. I'll take the three year deal. Now, the conversation turns to what happens with LeBron James and should LeBron James just get out of there. Stephen a Smith of the Stephen a Smith show referenced whether or not they should trade. Lebron you've got folks close to Jeanie Buss imploring her to trade LeBron James he does not have a no trade clause. And now you haven't given them to coach that he wanted. Lebron James's quality been about the business of trying to get a wide Lennon to come to the Los Angeles Lakers his stead at a loss Angeles Clippers so making a move like this by not bringing in a coach that he wants not securing that the coach said he wants in Los Angeles is his guy you never know what Domino's a going to fall right now. That was Stephen a Smith appearing on. Sportscenter discussing the possibility of LeBron James being traded, which to me is look there are people who know heck of a lot more and are more. Well connected than I am in this thing. I think it is one of these silliest topics that that we've talked about here at ESPN in quite some time. Is it a possibility? To me. It is so hard to fathom the Los Angeles Lakers deciding to trade him or even LeBron admitting failure going this was the wrong move. And and having to swallow his pride and ego. I need to get out of here. Both of those things. I don't envision any of that happening. Myron do I don't envision it happening. But it's not crazy. It's crazy because we're in America in our sports stars. Don't get traded to that degree. They thought they signed that the teams they used their power and free agency. But you don't trade your star quarterbacks. Your star NBA players your star baseball players. Whereas in soccer, you know, your name are you pod leisure? And all those all those guys have switched teams, you know in the last decade or so, and it's not outrageous for happening to support like that. I think the problem is if you're LeBron it's how do you want to in your
Lakers reportedly to interview former Grizzlies coach J.B. Bickerstaff as coaching search continues
"B Bickerstaff is going to interview for the Lakers. Head coaching position at Bernie, son. It is son. Yes, he spent two seasons as the grizzlies head coach and went forty eight and ninety seven he was also the interim head coach in Houston after Kevin McHale was fired right before the rockets hired Mike, Dan, Tony. He's scheduled to meet with Jeanie Buss. Rob Pelinka Joey bus, Jesse bus, Tim, Harris. And of course, Linda and Kurt Rambis. And yes, his father is Bernie Bickerstaff interim coach five games before. Mike Brown after Mike Brown was fired. But he looks like his dad, of course, you would he's well worked. These are the Lakers coaching candidates, and this is their last two seasons as head coaches JV Bickerstaff was fifteen and forty eight and thirty three and forty nine before he was fired Frank Vogel was twenty nine and fifty three and twenty five and fifty seven for he was fired Jason Kidd, forty two in forty twenty three twenty two five. Admits season final Holland's ten and twenty seven in his last season was fired mid season. And Mike Woodson was thirty seven and forty five before he was fired. That is you'll want to coaching pool. I I don't know enough about J V Bickerstaff to have an opinion. But he's interesting. I always liked his dad. Interesting list. My feeling is that they have completely blue completely blown this coaching. Search not been good. They they should have got money Williams. If that was the guy that they wanted they should've paid whatever and giving him whatever it is. He wanted to get him. Because what I feel like is. If you have someone in mind, that's your number one guy the moment that it goes out to the public. That is your number one guy. He is now your guy otherwise you look like a second option, and you're the Lakers. You can't be the second option. And then when you go to your number two guy, and he turns you down your now on your third option. And everyone knows this is your third option. Well, that's why you know, it's amazing to me. How stuff gets out like?
"jeanie buss" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"So the Lakers who have been imploding for mostly every day since. Seemingly forever have become one big dysfunctional salad. Here's a couple of stories that broke yesterday. A number one that Kurt and Linda Rambus overrule genie bus and the bus family on hiring. Tyron Lou who we thought two days ago was a done deal. Here was the second one that came down yesterday. The people close to Jeanie Buss are telling her to trade LeBron. Okay. I do believe I talked to somebody close to LeBron last night. I do believe LeBron would demand a trade at different times in his career. But he won't now. He's in L A, his wife his kids. They liked the community. He's got the homes. He's got the business. He's got his family. I think there was a point in LeBron's life. He would have just said get me out of here. Lebron got his rings. He's got his legacy. He's got his titles. He's got his money. He's got his brand. I think LeBron's really frustrated right now. But I I've also been told that he enriched Paul are just standing back. They're not imposing their will. And there's always a sense that LeBron's running everything they're not imposing their will. They're sitting back and watching it happen. And what they're probably thinking is today. We should have imposed are will they have not the Lakers are starting to feel like an this is weird because they've. Has had money. They're starting to feel like a power Powerball winner. You ever seen those Powerball winners where they don't even know how to spend the money and all of a sudden they buy like six horses a hovercraft nine jet skis and a tiger on the back yard and four winnebago's. The Lakers literally they land LeBron with their lump sum payment, the greatest free agent ever. And then they're like, all right. Let's get Rondeau. He can't shoot. I know how about land Stevenson keys weird. Yeah. I know how about javale McGee. He's an odd bird. Well, what about Michael Beasley? He's trouble doesn't last anywhere. I know when we got all this money. Let's have the Rams family run everything. Let's have the people that really matter LeBron and the coach that really fits him Tyler. Let's alienate them. They don't know what to do. They got that lump sum LeBron payment, and they've just made bad purchases ever since players that don't fit LeBron guys that can't shoot Kurt Rambis struggled as a coach. Now, the families, and I know the Rams family, I like them. But you cannot one of the things about sport is nothing in sports is as corrosive as bad ownership. You can fire a coach you can fire GM you can trade a player. But the reason the Detroit Lions don't have a Super Bowl. And the reason the Cleveland Browns don't have a Super Bowl, and the reason Abair should have more is they've historically had bad ownership the raiders in the last ten years. Not great ownership. You can't overcome. It would draft picks. You can't it all starts at the top. And right now, let's be honest about this. I've been saying this for five months and I get pushback limit in Los Angeles. This is worse than you think. It's just now all coming out. Like, it is worse. Then you think, you know, when a president leaves the White House than somebody writes a book, and they're like, oh, my I know it was a little crazy whole holy hell, it was really bad. They're gonna write books about this White House. It's Comey worse. New think this is a mess, and I'll tell you. What's really scary?.

"The dodgers. Magic is the perfect magic. He sits in the stands. He's funny. He goes on pre game shows. Everybody likes him he connects people. I mean, like, he's he's like a human Lincoln. He's like a human Facebook. I mean, he just connects people. That's what he does. Like magic is offended. If you don't come to him when you move to Los Angeles. And you don't come to magic and say, hey, can you help me? Magic's offended. He is Lincoln. He is Facebook. That's why he's great. With a big old smile in a big warm hug, but this jobs for grinders this this is a grind job. And magic admitted it I wanna be magic. Then Gobi magic. We love that magic. Let's not mess with that. Magic that. Magic's awesome team president magic never fed. And he admitted it there. Let me shift to this. Jeanie Buss now, she's the owner of the Lakers for those who don't know her father, the late great of Jerry Buss on the Lakers. And then got some kids. Jim genie. Genie's always been like operation side. Right. Not the basketball hoop side. She hires people for that very well liked lot of energy universally liked good person. But this I don't like. After magic bailed didn't give her a heads up. She ran to Twitter and said Irvine, I love working side by side with you. You've brought us a long way we will continue the journey. We love you part emoji heart emoji. No, stop no known that. That's not the time for heart emojis. I need grownup genie. I need hard ass genie..

"And I actually thought last night was perfect the way magic resigned. It's the way he ran the Lakers off the cuff unprepared rambling making it up day to day through the media. He's beloved he's universally liked. He's a really really nice guy and today, he'll get mostly a soft landing because he's magic he's hard to not like you cannot like m j or Kobe's intensity or LeBron's ego. Lot of stars. You cannot like magic impossible to not like medium once you like him. Lights up a room. But yesterday, what magic did let's be honest. It was embarrassing, and it was on professional, and it was kind of it was just a rambling incoherent mess of stuff. And that's how he ran the Lakers. They didn't tell his boss Jeanie Buss. Didn't tell rob Pelinka didn't tell the Braun. Lebron's people. Didn't tell anybody didn't tell the PR person they were all scrambling to catch up. Well, colony magic Scott allot of he's distracted. He's got a lot. Then don't take the job. No excuses on it mirrors. They still work. Don't take the job. If you're not ready to commit I thought actually when I watch this. It was a perfect way. For magic to resign. The way ran the team just kinda rambling not really buttoned up not fully committed not detailed. It just felt like the same reason. They didn't work as a head coach a late night talk show host team president you got to be fully committed. I say this about comedy all the.
Luke Walton, Jason Kidd And Jeanie Buss discussed on NBA: Lakers at Jazz
"I don't think it's a done deal. That Luke Walton is not the coach next year most likely scenario. Sure, they're looking for somebody when this season ends. But being this. An organization like the Lakers that doesn't do anything by the book seemingly and sometimes are hypocrites and do self self involved wounds to themselves. It would not shock me. If at the end of all this and this season is evaluated. Jeanie Buss tells the front office at Nope. My coaches, Luke Walton you guys figure out the rest and by all accounts, Luke, Walton has been doing a great job. He did get that vote of confidence by the franchise back in October. He's had to deal with all this in year, one of LeBron coming into the fold, but how's he handled all the rumors surrounding Jason Kidd and other potential coaching replacements. I mean, he's felt the heat literally since Magic Johnson and rob Pelinka
"jeanie buss" Discussed on The Lowe Post
"Great, and, you know, always instilled the the value of having a superstar on the team, and what that would bring and certainly one of the big free agent signings. You know in NBA history was one Shaquille O'Neal decided to join the Lakers back in nineteen Ninety-six. We're gonna talk about that summer later because that was that was a pivotal pivotal summer. How much LeBron one on one time? Have you had gotten his? Not much, you know. But I you know, he is he just watching him practice. Having him part of the organization he brings so much. I'd forgotten what it was like to to have the most relevant player. The most exciting players successful player. You know, be on our team. And it's, you know, brought attention. It's brought your games are like, it's a circus. There's so much media. It's incredible. You know, some people can look at a circus as a negative. But it's it's not it's not chaotic like annoyed. I guess I guess I meant it somewhere in between like I'm I I don't like to jostle I'm not adjust. So I don't wanna jostle so give it a nice clippers game when there's like a third of the media crowd. Well, I mean, that's you know, in terms of what what the Lakers are about. We were used to. We we were used to. That we've gotten away from it. And now, it's it's nice it it brings back a lot of good positive memories. You mentioned identity and how it's hard to get one. When you the coach x amount of times. Obviously there has been almost nonstop since you signed the Brian speculation about Luke's job security, Luke Walton job security, and there was a piece this is very weak in the athletic, even saying, you know, there will come at this is when you know, the young guys had lost a bunch of games at a row without the Braun. There will come a time or there could come a time. And maybe soon where you know, magic said this thing where it's gonna take something drastic for Luke to not be coach for the rest of the season is this drastic, and blah, blah. And then will there come a time? When you know, we know who the hammer is the hammer is genie Jean-Luc have been very good relationship. I know you respect Lucas a coach so speak to that. Is he safe no matter what for the year? What is your view or does? Magic just have carte blanche. Will you just find out about it? When magic tells you have made a decision. Well, I, you know, I think the reason why the Lakers are doing. So well is that we have someone with the basketball vision? And that's Magic Johnson. He along with rob Pelinka are running our basketball program. Now, I can tell you right now that everyone magic rob myself, everyone in the organization is behind Luke. There's nothing more important urban to to magic than. Besides his family than this Laker team. And we are doing everything we can to make sure that Luke is successful his job. That's our job. And I think he's doing a terrific job. And given the injuries that we've had it's a challenge and people forget like he's he's had two of our starters taken away from him..
"jeanie buss" Discussed on The Lowe Post
"And now the low post welcome to the low post podcast live from Los Angeles where we are thrilled to be joined by former high school basketball score keeper and among many other things controlling owner of the Los Angeles Lakers. Jeanie Buss our you have. I'm really good. I'm so glad you brought that up because it's like, yeah. I was a score. Keeper a lot of people say, well, what background? Did you have basketball way before? My dad even bought the Lakers. I was the score keeper in high school for our boys basketball team you played as well. I played on the girl's team. But I never made varsity. I was only JV I still played because I really liked helping the rookies, you know, like the freshman give me give me your scouting report. What player were you? I was terrible. I was one of those players that the coach 'cause I would always show up that you know, he. Had to play at some point. Because I worked hard. Okay. I was a hassle. That's I could. So it is been it's funny. When I was thinking about I mean, you're the owner of the Lakers. I could ask you anything. This is the most iconic franchises you guys in the eighties. And maybe the Celtics or the you would take issue with that last one. I'm sure now you said that I got to stop you there. Okay. Say that I I've respect the Celtics legacy. And you know, it really if you look at it the Lakers are in and what Dr Jerry Buss built with the Lakers was really to, you know, balance the the Celtics dynasty, you know, he bought the Lakers in nineteen seventy nine and you know with the goal of making Los Angeles proud of their NBA team. And he felt that there was an east coast bias that the media covered, you know, the Knicks and the seventy Sixers and the Celtics and the Lakers. The west coast teams didn't get the respect that they deserved. And so really what would the Lakers be without the Celtics? Interesting. Well, you have a what eleven championships in Los Angeles. Now. Yes. So I think. Well for you. But what I was thinking was it has been quite a couple of years. We are coming up on the two year anniversary of let's call it the regime change with the Lakers with your brother going out and magic and rob coming in. You have signed the greatest player alive. And maybe the greatest player of all time. Do you feel but but I was gonna say do you feel like you can take deep breath now? But you still have a lot of work to do is like this. This is not your full formed team. But how do you feel like you as the owner have sort of like, it's it's it's some stuff is over now. I believe that were in the right direction. I don't believe that were done. We won't be finished until we're proud. And so I think that we have seen the clearly the direction that Magic Johnson wants to go in. And I think that making the change two years ago was something that needed to happen. I've been very pleased with the progress that has been made with our team. And and really when I talked about making the change two years ago. It was about feeling that there was no identity as to what Laker basketball was in that when you change coaches every eighteen months, it's almost impossible to really set. A course..
"jeanie buss" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"Back with Jeanie Buss the controlling owner of the Lakers and CEO live on the rich Eisen show. What was the first time you met magic. It's your first time ever that I ever met magic. You know, back in the day the the draft wasn't what it is today. It was. They just called the players and said, oh, you've been drafted. So once magic was drafted by the Lakers they flew him out to LA and Bill Sharman who was the general manager of the team brought him over to my dad's house and my dad said, you know, genie, they're going to be coming over here. I got some stuff to do upstairs. Will you just bring them in seat him in the living room and offer them something to drink? So you know, I was seventeen years old. Magic was nineteen. So the doorbell rings, I open it up and there's the smile. Mile of this guy that just, you know was so fun watching on TV and now meeting them in person. So he came in, we sat down, he talked about how excited he was to be drafted to the Lakers, but that he was only stay three years until he could go home and play for the pistons. And this is what he told me how my dad's house on upstairs and you know, I was panicked. I said, dad, you're not gonna believe what he just told me that that he's, he wants to go home and play for his team back home. And my dad didn't miss a beat when he said first time he walks out on the floor at the forum. He's never gonna leave. That's what my dad said. And he knew the love affair that he had brought somebody that the city would fall in love with and magic would fall in love with the city. And that's exactly what happened and you know magic, never laughed. Remind magic all the time. But that that you know it, it kind of made sense for who he was, you know that he, you know how how much his hometown means to him. I mean, he is, you know, Mr. Michigan state even to this very day, you know, but he's Mr. Los Angeles. He country even more obviously, you know, world renowned in that regard. So how did you ever sit back and go while I'm now the controlling owner of the Lakers and the guy who I am putting in charge as as the person to make sure that we get all the trophies in the case is Magic Johnson, eight. You know, it's, it's really how we were raised by the same man. Basically, Dr boss, you know, magic coming to the team at nineteen. You know, my dad had a lot of influence and magic was somebody who wanted to learn about the business side of the operation and. And you know it, it's it's so interesting working with him because we see things the same way because we were brought up under the same philosophy and it's just made, you know, putting the Lakers in this kind of position so easy because he and I both see what needs to be done and will continue to do until you know, we, we've, we've reached our goal which is to be to make LA proud of the seem while I think you're already mission accomplished there. You know, with LeBron James coming here, you just feel it. You just feel it a walking around the town. There's no question. It's palpable sense of excitement, and I know. So in that Koby in particular is excited about this. Is it true that he texted you a game of thrones me? Yes, once that the signing took place. Yes, that's true. Yes.
