Kupchak: Buss ‘gets way too much criticism’
The universal condemnation that has hit Jim Buss this season is being called inaccurate by one person in particular. The guy who works with Buss every day.
Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak said Buss was being unfairly assailed, part of an in-depth interview Kupchak granted Monday to The Times.
“Jim gets way too much criticism and not enough credit with the success this team has had,” Kupchak said. . “He is following in the footsteps of the most successful owner maybe of all time, which is hard to do. But since he’s gotten more and more involved, which has been about seven or eight years, we’ve had some pretty good moments.”
