LAKERS’ PRESIDENT JEANIE BUSS TALKS LONZO, LAVAR & MAGIC

It’s been about eight months since Lakers’ controlling owner and President Jeanie Buss took full control of the storied franchise. A lot has happened since then, including snagging  Lonzo Ball in the draft- and his father LaVar by default – plus the hiring of the Showtime era legend Magic Johnson. This week at the espnW Women + Sports Summit, Jeanie shared her experience as one of the most powerful women in sports, plus her thoughts on Lonzo, LaVar and Magic.

On drafting LA area native Lonzo Ball:

I can’t remember anybody with more hype going into the draft except for Magic Johnson. Now we have a kid, born and raised in Los Angeles, and that’s exciting for our fans, and for us, to know that we have someone that really represents the city. It seemed like I was watching a movie. It was really special and a great opportunity for him and us.

Her thoughts on Lavar Ball:

The day of the press conference after the draft, we flew them back to LA so I got to meet him in my office face to face. He’s a dad who loves his children, and I have to admire that. It’s a joy to work with him and his family. But I won’t be wearing Big Baller Brand because I have to stay neutral.

Jeanie and Magic Johnson have been close since the Lakers drafted him. Their relationship is like that of brother and sister. She discussed why it was a no-brainer to bring Magic into an executive position with the Lakers.
