Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Praises Buss Family; Blasts Donald Sterling

The Donald Sterling scandal has taken the NBA and the nation by storm. Sterling’s alleged recording from TMZ.com has sparked reactions from numerous players, politicians, celebrities and other NBA owners.

As a result of the reaction to the scandal, the NBA has been forced to take action and will do so this week.

Even though the league is outraged by the Sterling scandal and will inflict a severe penalty on the longtime owner, NBA commissioner Adam Silver won’t announce the final decision on the issue until Tuesday.

In the meantime, Kobe Bryant took to Twitter once again to comment on the issue. This time around, Kobe praised the Los Angeles Lakers franchise and the Buss family:

There couldn’t be two NBA owners more different than Sterling and Dr. Jerry Buss. Sterling has had a history of racial allegations, lawsuits and a number of problems behind the scenes while Buss was revered as one of the greatest owners in professional sports.

Buss led the Lakers franchise to 10 NBA titles as the owner of the team and was loved by the players, fans and other owners in the league. The late Dr. Buss was respected and helped evolve the NBA into what it is today.

In Kobe’s next tweet, the five-time NBA champion let it be known that he doesn’t think Sterling should continue being the owner of the Clippers franchise:

With Silver scheduled for a press conference in New York on Tuesday, the NBA will likely have a temporary solution for the Sterling fiasco before Game 5 of the playoff series between the Clippers and Golden State Warriors. Although many are asking for Sterling to be forced to sell the team, the league is unable to take such an action.

That being said, it’ll be interesting to see what Silver and company have come up with to penalize Sterling moving forward.
