Looks like not everyone in Lakerland was happy about the change in management...

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.
