Jeanie Buss Says Brother Jim ‘Completely Unfit’ To Run Lakers
Lakers News: Jeanie Buss Won’t ‘speculate’ On What Will Happen After This Season

The ongoing saga between Los Angeles Lakers president Jeanie Buss and her brother Jim, the former vice president of basketball operations continues.

Jeanie recently placed a temporary restraining order on Jim and her other older brother Johnny Buss as she believed they were attempting to oust her as president of the team. Jeanie removed Jim from his position only last week.

Now in some recent court documents Jeanie reportedly said Jim is ‘completely unfit’ to run the Lakers according to Nathan Fenno of the LA Times:

Jeanie also expressed concern over the future of new president of basketball operations Magic Johnson’s future should her brothers take control via Fenno:

It is extremely unfortunate that these issues are taking place in the public eye and potentially distracting the young Lakers down the stretch of this season. With the draft and, especially, free agency coming up in the summer the Lakers need to be on the same page and this puts that in jeopardy.
