Lakers owner Jeanie Buss started signing with Dwight Howard last summer
The owner of the Los Angeles Lakers, Jeanie Buss, talked about her decision to bring Dwight Howard back to the team last summer.
Bass said that without some of the wisdom she learned from the legendary Phil Jackson, she would not reunite with the 34-year-old big man.
“Really, you won’t give up anyone. Phil Jackson taught me. Because you know Phil, before he coached the Bulls, he coached at the CBA and coached at Puerto Rico, he said Each player will develop at his own pace.
You cannot force someone to develop faster than others. Some players are ready to participate in NBA games at the age of 18, he said some players are not ready until the age of 26 or 27. You can’t portray them as “Well, this guy is like this, so give it up!”, Bath said on Friday’s “Daddy Issue with Joe Buck and Oliver Hudson” podcast.
