Lakers Fanbase Looks to Jeanie Buss

The two teams will play through the final 48 minutes Sunday because the rules require it, but there is no longer any reason the shallow team from Hollywood should share the same court with the workmanlike bunch from south Texas.
Something certainly jolted Jeanie Buss out of her seat, as the Lakers’ executive vice president and governor walked out of the building with 7:40 remaining in the fourth quarter. Buss, who needs to take charge of this team for the sake of her father’s legacy, has not spoken publicly since the Feb. 18 death of Jerry Buss. Here’s hoping she addresses the fans next week after this season officially ends.
The fans deserve to hear from who is running the show, and how they are going to run it. The fans need explanations for the mess that stumbled across the court Friday in the worst home playoff loss in franchise history, because it wasn’t just about the bad luck of the present, but bad decisions in the past and questionable hope for the future.
These Lakers stunk long before they ached. When their projected opening night lineup was actually together on the floor, they were 0-7. Their roster was too old, their coach was too stubborn to change his system to fit them, and their supposed future centerpiece has played mostly with neither wisdom nor passion.
