RE: The Official 2016-17 NBA Season Thread
Looks like not everyone in Lakerland was happy about the change in management...

http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/18816...s-jim-buss

Quote:Los Angeles Lakers president and co-owner Jeanie Buss has thwarted a legal attempt to strip her of her controlling ownership of the team by her brothers Johnny and Jim Buss.

The older Buss brothers had filed a motion to hold a meeting with the Lakers minority owners on March 7 to elect a new board of directors for the Lakers, and replace Jeanie Buss.
Quote:Lawyers for Jeanie Buss challenged that motion in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, by filing a temporary restraining order, saying the older brothers actions were continuing to "breach their duties" by challenging her controlling ownership.

They wanted to have a vote on the board of directors to remove her, but the trust says she's the controlling owner and also says the controlling owner must sit on the board. Jimmy Buss is a moron. Moreover, the guy actually said publicly that he'd step down if the Lakers didn't get back to being a top team. This stuff inspires no confidence.

And now the Buss Family Christmas is gonna be REALLY awkward...

Wonder if the brothers' end game is now to argue that the family is so divided about the Lakers that the only solution is to sell the team.

Check Ramona Shelburne's Twitter feed. https://twitter.com/ramonashelburne

She says that one of the brothers' proposed new directors is an executive with AEG. AEG already controls the 2 (of 5) board seats not appointed by the Buss family. Electing the AEG guy proposed by the Buss brothers would give AEG control of the Lakers' board, and presumably the authority to approve a sale of the franchise.

Well, the Hornets managed to choke off making the playoffs this year.... inexcusable for a team with our talent not to be able to make the post season in a completely SUCK Eastern division.

Yeah, we had injuries.... but we also had way to many WTF losses... Better make some good trades and/or draft picks to fix this.

@ Bold, I think you are right... unless there is a shocker. Most of these are going 4-1 at best.

LOL, Jazz and Bucks go up 1-0, and the Cavs needed a miracle to beat the Pacers by 1.

Jazz-Clippers was a good game. Might be a series worth watching. Clips shouldn't have let that game 1 slip away.

The Rockets look goooooood.

Celtics got caught napping. When Magic was playing, he liked to say that a playoff series doesn't really start until one team loses at home... Bulls-Celtics has started.

The Thunder are Westbrook only....


Celtics, not really caught napping as probabbly Thomas still dealing with family issues....we'll see what goes down in game 2.
