      If you don't think it's going to happen, Stephen A., then WHY throw it out there?? He's part owner of the Heat, he'd have to sell it, I believe it's 5%, so ownership would have to be at least 10%, maybe more. Go ahead, Jeanie, put your money where your mouth is, make him a minority owner. It won't make a difference. During LeBron's time with LA, they will NOT win a championship no matter who is running the team. It took Joe Lacob 5 YEARS before the Warriors became champions. Think about that for a minute. It's not easy.

        Pat Riley and Phil Jackson dont get along. Phil will,if he already hasn't advise Jeannie not to bring Pat in. The Lakers have the mgmt team they want. Will it work? I dont it. The have created a situation that doesn't maximize the best interest of the organization. Its nolonger the Lakers. This is reflective in no free agents wanting to come.

                          And QUEEN JAMES couldn't handle having the great Jerry West in the Lakers front office cause even Jerry West would pick apart QUEEN JAMES in everything he's doing wrong

                              If any team wants to stop GS they better pick some of those guys from that team and break them up...LeBron should worried about Clay Thompson,and Livingston...instead of kawai or kyrie or AD....and get pat riley or spolstras!

                                        Jeanie called Pat, told him she wants him & will pay him anything he wants.
                                        Pat asked Jeanie that if he takes the job can he hire his own GM & coach,
                                        Jeanie's responded NO!
                                        Pat said thanks but NO THANKS!

                                          All the speculation means nothing. They’re getting paid to hype shit up that’s not even true. These talkshows are just too opinionated from people can’t even play the sport, from people never played a sport before, from people who were not good at playing the sport before and it’s fucking pathetic

                                            Max has a hard job working with Stephen whether it’s admitted or not. The man hardly gets to finish a point without Stephen jumping back in after he’s talked for the longest.

                                                              ??? sit in the rocking chair??? come on man ... where are all the Jerry West disciples????

                                                              Turn the organization over to LeBron James AND his management team... the Man has been in the league 15 years... He knows how to run everything...
                                                              I say let LeBron run the team for the next three years... take whoever He suggests and if they don't win in the next 3 years ... it's on Him...
