MIAMI -- OK, girls and boys, let's all march up to the blackboard and write it 100 times: We're sorry, Jerry Buss. ... We're sorry, Jerry Buss. ... We're sorry, Jerry Buss. ... The much-castigated owner of the Los Angeles Lakers was right. We were wrong. You, me ... everybody. We portrayed Buss as some sort of moron when he decided two years ago to keep Kobe Bryant instead of Shaquille O'Neal. Oh, how we howled. How could Buss allow the most dominant big man of our lifetime to walk out the door?

Cuban plays hard Ben Bolch Los Angeles Times The NBA still has the best owner in pro sports even after the passing of Jerry Buss. His name is Mark Cuban. Not only do his teams win (with the notable exception of this season), but he pampers his players, speaks his mind and always is looking for ways to improve and innovate. Besides, what other owner has appeared on "Entourage" and "The Colbert Report" and starred in his own reality show, "Shark Tank"? Cuban is a man of the people despite his extreme wealth.

LOS ANGELES - Phil Jackson stepped back into the Los Angeles Lakers' soap opera yesterday, agreeing to return after a year's hiatus in which he caught lobsters off the coast of Australia, built a lakefront home in Montana and wrote a memoir in which he bared his ill feelings about the organization that dumped him. Jackson, who guided the Lakers to three NBA titles in five seasons, ended a slow-speed courtship by signing the richest per-season coaching deal...

Let's take a slightly wider perspective on Kobe Bryant's latest tug-of-war with the Los Angeles Lakers. The entertainment value of the NBA playoffs has been deteriorating daily and the postseason is lurching and stumbling to a pulse-deadening conclusion. And it's all Bryant's fault. If he had just looked around him three years ago this month and realized how good he had it, we might be witnessing the end game for one of sports' great dynasties. Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, Phil Jackson and whatever pieces could be fit around them, eagerly financed by Jerry Buss - they could be grasping hungrily for a fifth, maybe a sixth, Larry O'Brien Trophy.

That the Seattle SuperSonics fired George Karl wasn't surprise, considering the team's recent playoff failures. Yet, until a week ago Friday, the Sonics were talking about signing Karl to another contract.It appears it was Karl's mouth -- and not his inability to win -- that got him fired.Just before Karl was fired, the New York Post's Peter Vescey wrote a column that recounted a conversation between Karl and team president Wally Walker about contract talks that were about to begin. Walker had asked Karl specifically to keep the conversation under wraps, and felt betrayed.
