“I know that there’s been some unfair criticism of Kurt Rambis,” she said, via Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times. “I want to remind people, he’s been involved in the NBA for close to 40 years, that he has been a part of championship teams both as a player and assistant coach, he is someone I admire for his basketball knowledge.” 

To those who are not aware, Kurt Rambis, as a player was indeed an all-time great. His credentials as a coach, however, leave a lot to be desired. Be that as it may, Rambis has been close friends with the Buss family and it is clear that he has a strong relationship in place with Jeanie Buss.

“In terms of Linda Rambis, she does not have a role in the basketball department; her role is, as it’s been for the last almost 40 years, is as my advisor,” Buss said. “She and I have worked together for years and years and years. Why that has become an issue for people, I don’t understand.”

To think about it, Jeanie Buss does make a valid point, both Kurt and Linda Rambis have been involved with the team for quiet some year. Even when the newly-equipped Lakers won the league in the Covid-affected 2020 season, they were there. So why weren’t any questions raised then?
