Jim Buss Says Jeanie ‘Has The Ultimate Say’ In Decisions

jimbussEver since the untimely death of the great Dr. Jerry Buss last February, there have been questions over who is truly in charge of the Lakers organization. Basic knowledge is that Jim Buss is in charge of basketball operations, while Jeanie runs the business side.

In an interview with Fox Sports Radio 570 AM, Jim Buss spoke about the decision making process that goes on within the Lakers, and whether or not their system works:

Jeanie would have probably the ultimate say [...] the system has worked for years. Jeanie has been running the business side for years and years and it has been working.

Buss spoke at length about how long he has been making decisions for the Lakers, and the long process that goes into it. Even before Jerry Buss’ passing, Jim was very prominent within the organization and very involved in all basketball decisions.

Most assume that Jeanie has the most respect amongst their NBA peers and Jim conceding that Jeannie has the final say in major Laker decisions that cross the basketball and business operations, shows his status within the organization. Buss also added that he has the final say in basketball decisions, but rarely does it come down to one person’s say.

In the end, the Buss family has a system that has been working and until it is proven it won’t work, it will continue on.
