In not-so-breaking-news, Celtics coach Brad Stevens again said he won’t be coaching in the NCAA Tournament anytime soon.
Stevens, who is a fun but unrealistic name to add to the list of potential candidates to fill the newly open position at Indiana University, shot down any possibility of returning to his home state while speaking to reporters before a Friday matchup against the Nets.
“I don’t speak to the rumor mill or anything else,” Stevens, 40, said. “I’ve made pretty clear I’m going to be here. I’ve been asked about that quite a bit. And I’ll keep saying the same thing. I’m going to be here until the Celtics decide they want to move in another direction.”
“The message is clear here: Do not underestimate Jeanie Buss,” her attorney, Adam Streisand, said. “There is not going to be a palace coup. Not now. Not ever.”
Because of Jim Buss’ attempt to take over the team, he now has lost his position as a co-trustee. There were four co-trustees within the two thirds of the Lakers that the Busses own.
According to an L.A. Times source, Jim resigned his spot to younger sister Janie, who has always supported Jeanie. Now the two women and Johnny are co-trustees.
Jim Buss refused to delve into the issues with the family, saying in a text message that, “It is difficult for me to remain quiet as many of the articles and stories are full of Wholesale NFL Jerseys Nike misreporting and does not Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping cover the truth and reasons of what has transpired.”
The brothers tried to oust Jeanie from her position after she gutted the Lakers’ front office last month, hiring Magic Johnson to be president of the organization and Kobe Bryant’s agent, Rob Pelinka, as the new general manager.
Jim Buss lost his position as executive vice president of basketball operations in that makeover.
