Like most casual fans of professional basketball though, I had heard about the drama surrounding the ownership of the Lakers franchise. I had also heard that Jeanie Buss, one of the daughters of the previous owner, had become the controlling owner of it.
What I didn’t know was why, or how, or what it meant for Jeanie Buss.
This remarkable article by ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne covers that. It’s a beautifully-written article about how Jeanie Buss did the best she could with terrible, awkward circumstances surrounding her siblings and the ownership of the team. Click here to check it out.
