Lakers News: Jeanie Buss Says ‘Ultimately, I Am The One Voice’

Lakers president Jeanie Buss has begun to address the concerns of fans of the team in arguably the worst season in franchise history.

On Thursday, Buss made an appearance on 710 ESPN radio with John Ireland and Steve Mason to talk about Phil Jackson recent move to the New York Knicks and the current state of the Lakers organization.

Buss addressed numerous topics on Thursday from Jackson leaving to Dwight Howard to who is running the franchise. Buss didn’t hesitate to let it be known that she is calling the shots via Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

GM Mitch Kupchak and Lakers Executive VP Jim Buss currently run the basketball operations for the Lakers. Buss and Kupchak handle the decision-making process, but it seems as though Jeanie is at the top of the totem pole.

With so many drastic changes over the last two years, the future remains uncertain for the Lakers as they attempt to rebuild in the twilight of the Kobe Bryant era. The next few months will be telling in terms of the direction of the franchise with the 2014 NBA Draft and free agency right around the corner.

The Buss family will continue to run the Lakers organization with Jeanie making that abundantly clear. Only time will tell if Jeanie and Jim can right the ship and get this team back on track.
