Jerry West wants no parts of that job. This entire situation is starting to look like Kobe may be involved behind the scene. Pelinka is Kobe's guy, and now the word is Jeanie wants to give more decision making power to Pelinka, who wouldn't have the job if not for Kobe. Jeanie is very loyal to the Laker Family, especially those her father loved. She needs to bring in some outsiders with no emotional connection. Rumors also are out there saying her relationship with Phil Jackson isn't as warm as it once was.......

I agree that Jerry probably doesn't want anything to do with the job. At one point he did, but Jeannie and Phil pretty well nixed that. I think Pelinka is very knowledgable about the game. I wouldn't have been hearbroken had he been fired, but I don't see why everybody has turned on him. I think he deserves another year or two.

The best solution would be for Jeanie Buss to sell The Lakers, and for the new owner to hire basketball people who make basketball decisions based on facts and evidence, and not misguided loyalty. NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!
