why is Jerry West not running the Lakers? I have asked this over and over again and no one will answer. Why is this Laker Legend out there building other teams while the Lakers struggle. What gives?

If you are Jeanie Buss wouldnt your first call now be to Jerry West with a single question, Jerry West what will it take to get you back in the fold, and by the Way can we have Zubac back? lol

Magic did not want to share the power or prestige as he invisioned his reign at LA bringing with West.   He wanted total power making player trades and drafting .   He said as much and demanded it of the Buss family. NO West ....he wanted all the glory and no work. 

I called it when he was hired ...fools gold .....all talk and no substance.    No experience as a pres GM .  One stupid mistake after another .....his legacy .  Quiting is his gift to Lakers .  Not firing Walton.   

Too bad .....they fell for his smile and sales pitch of how great he d rebuild the lakers .  He left them with Camp LeGoon to deal with.  Instead he traded off much good talent and wasted Lukes effort to build a good young team. 

Luke is a saint for putting up with this clown organization.

Plus .....West is 80 plus years old .....he is too old to run the Lakers , thats alot time and energy he could be a consultant like he is for clips .

West left years ago, pushed out by Jim Buss wanting Mitch Kupchak to assume the throne. Mitch spent all those years being groomed and Jim Buss wanted to run the show, get out from his father's shadow.

Huge mistake

Too old. Doesn't want to run a team (any team) anymore.
