Jeanie Buss has channeled her personal Phil Jackson with a message after the Lakers lost in Game 3. The Los Angeles Lakers are currently in a battle with the Denver Nuggets. The series is currently 2-1 in favor of the Lakers. But they are coming off a very tough loss. They have definitely looked like the best team in the series and it will likely stay that way. If the Lakers play to their potential, the Nuggets are no match.
Sadly, that is not the only thing the players are having to think about in 2020. It has been a tough year for everyone. First of all, the players and coaches are having to work in a bubble. And for the vast majority of them being there, they were unable to have their families with them. Now, with the social injustice and BLM, it is making it even harder to focus.
LeBron is asked about this constantly. He talked about his thoughts on the subject.
“I’ve never in my 35 years ever condoned violence,” James said in a videoconference. “Never have. But I also know what’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong, and I grew up in the inner city in a Black community in what we call the hood or the ghetto, however you want to picture it. I’ve seen a lot of counts first hand of a lot of Black people being racially profiled because of our color. And I’ve seen it throughout my whole life. I’m not saying that all cops are bad because, I actually throughout high school and things of that nature, I’m around them all the time and they’re not all bad.”
Jeanie Buss Shares Phil Jackson Inspired Message to Lakers Fans After Game 3 Loss
“But when you see the videos that’s going on and you can see all over the — not only my hometown, but all over America — you continue to see the acts of violence towards my kind, I can’t do nothing but to speak about it and see the common denominator. But not one time have I ever said, ‘Let’s act violent towards cops.’ I just said that what’s going on in our community is not okay and we fear for that and we fear for our lives.”
Luckily, the Lakers have Jeanie Buss on their side. She came out with a message for the Lakers after their Game 3 loss.
Take a look:
The Lakers are likely going to bounce back. They know what is at stake here. Win 2 more games and they will be in the Finals for the first time in years. This would be a great homage to Kobe Bryant.
