The latest installment of Kobegate
is embarrassing for pretty much everybody in Lakerland, but especially for the team's septuagenarian* owner, Jerry Buss. Kobe hates Mitch Kupchak, Kobe wants Jerry West back, Kobe wants to be traded, Kobe doesn't
want to be traded, Kobe feels betrayed by the organization, Kobe deserves better, Kobe needs to shut up...Kobe, Kobe, Kobe!!*Latin for "wrinkly old dude."
Buss apparently was so sick and tired of the whole situation that he got liquored up and then went for a drive through streets of Carlsbad. Going the wrong way. Cops finally pulled him over -- Buss didn't immediately respond -- and he (surprise!!) failed a sobriety test.
Jeannana M. Flores, a 23-year-old
woman from New York City, was also in the car with Buss. I'm sure she's just a dear family friend and not
some skanky chick Buss was going to
nail in the back seat
have intimate relations with. No, seriously.
In case you're worried about Jerry's mental state and the effect it'll have on his future driving safety, don't. "Although I was driving only a short distance, it was a bad decision and I was wrong to do it," Buss said in a totally made-up statement
issued by the Lakers. "It was a mistake I will not make again."They're just friends, you perv.
