Lakers News: Jim Buss Not Willing to Blow Up Lakers Team

jimbussThe Los Angeles Lakers had one of the most successful off-seasons in 2012 when they acquired both Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. Everyone had high expectations for the Lakers and many thought they would challenge the Chicago Bulls’ 72-win season.

However, the Lakers are currently 15-20 and have been the most disappointing team so far in this NBA season. Nothing is going right in Los Angeles and the Lakers have yet to win a game in the new year. The front office has been blamed for not putting together a cohesive roster, but Jim Buss is staying behind his team.

Buss spoke to 710 ESPN Los Angeles and he talked about the state of the Lakers. Despite Los Angeles’ struggles, Buss is not willing to blow up his project.

“This team is built to win, it’s a very, very solid team. We haven’t seen them all together and play together for multiple games. So in my mind, we would not consider a temporary fix or blow it up. Why blow up something we have a future with?”

The Lakers will have a lot of questions to answer this summer, especially if the team fails to win an NBA championship. Their star center Dwight Howard is not under contract for next season and the front-office will do whatever it can to convince Howard to remain in Los Angeles for the long-term.

There is no question the Lakers are in serious trouble and there is a chance that the team misses the playoffs. If the Lakers do in fact miss the postseason, there should be some major changes to this roster.

    Jim Buss is an idiot. Basically he is saying the same things as when Bynum was here. You cannot stick to something, or champion someone that has been proven ineffective. Changes NEED to be made, obviously.

  • joe23

    I think this team is solid to lose every game and solid to miss the playoff.

    “Why blow up something we have a future with?”

    This guy is way in over his head. Almost half way through the season and we can already see that it has failed. Nash is getting older, Dwight’s chances of staying a Laker are diminishing due to the Lakers maybe not even making the playoffs, this current roster isn’t the “future”. Buss and Mitch, and all of us fans, were sure that this was a championship team. At this point we’d be fortunate to make the playoffs. Buss’ disregard to making a trade, shows his inability to run this franchise.

    A trade has to be made as soon as possible. If D’Antoni wont use Gasol then trade him away. We need youth and energy, something that we will definitely need for the future.

    Maybe Lane Kiffin should coach the Lakers? lol

  • honestly

    why blow up something we have a future with??? holy shit, this team is old as fuck! Jim buss youre a retard, i hope jerry buss give the team to his daughter and phil and her can make the basketball decisions.. this dude spoiled the shit outta bynum and he resulted to a very immature player. fuck u jim buss, u look like u watch nascar more than u watch basketball

      hahhaha!! NASCAR watching muthafucka!!

  • Miss you Phil

    As soon as Mitch
    said that D’Antoni’s system would fit this team better than Jackson’s, you knew the lie had to be coming from Jim Buss. Nobody is dumb enough to believe that Howard and Gasol fit better in a run-and-gun than a triangle. Gasol is better shooting 3-pointers than being around the rim? Are you freakin’ kidding me? D’Antoni does not know how to coach this team; Phil Jackson does . . . and it’s too late. Thanks, Jim.

    The problem with lakers right now is the coach period. Jim Buss u don’t know anything about basketball just let phil jackson and jeannie buss to take over.

  • Angry Laker fan
