Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss has had a hectic few months.
Despite her team entering the season with championship aspirations, they’ve struggled mightily to get any semblance of quality play going. This led to a tense showdown between her and team star LeBron James recently.
But the bad times didn’t end there.
This week, Buss found herself in the headlines for a series of racy messages.
A couple in particular involving the late Kobe Bryant and consensus NBA GOAT Michael Jordan went super viral.
Naturally, fans had some reactions:
I knew she was like that 😂 https://t.co/OWClFVXxhc

The Lakers are in a rough place right now. There is infighting between the front office and the team’s stars. People are unhappy. The losing seems to have broken everyone’s spirits.
And worse yet, there appears to be no sign of reprieve. It’s not like this group will magically wake up one morning and be less old or poorly constructed.
The videos speak for themselves. https://t.co/EURaUTLn3r

Chemistry issues rarely work themselves out without major change.
For better or worse, this is what the Lakers are right now. And what they are right now is one humiliation after another.
