Jeanie Buss Outcry Only Adds To LA Lakers’ Woes
An excerpt from the upcoming update to Jeanie Buss’ ‘Laker Girl’ Memoirs has revealed that the chief of Los Angeles Lakers business operations was dismayed and disappointed by the choice to hire Mike D’Antoni as the team’s new head coach last November as opposed to her fiancee Phil Jackson.

It’s Still Kobe Bryant Or Bust For The Los Angeles Lakers
The 2012-13 NBA season was unlike any that the Los Angeles Lakers have experienced in their recent history.
