The monthlong fight between Jeanie Buss and her brothers, Jim and Johnny, to control the Lakers is over.
The three siblings have agreed for Jeanie to serve as controlling owner and on the team’s board of directors as long as the family owns the Lakers. They filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday asking a judge to issue an order approving the accord.
“The message is clear here: Do not underestimate Jeanie Buss,” her attorney, Adam Streisand, told the Los Angeles Times. “There is not going to be a palace coup. Not now. Not ever.”
