According to Lakers all-star Kobe Bryant, listening is a vital part of leadership. "You have to be able to listen to what your teammates are saying," said Bryant in a YouTube clip released Thursday while he was on a tour of China with Nike. "You have to be observant," he continued. "Observe what they may be going through, what their emotions might be at that point and time. Then once you listen and observe, then you can figure out the best way to motivate them. There's no one way of doing it. It's always fluid, ever-changing because it all depends on the individual.

The Lakers and owner/executive Jeanie Buss miss the late Jerry Buss in many ways. "The Laker way isn't the same because Dr. Buss isn't here," said Jeanie Buss on Thursday, live on ESPN Los Angeles-AM (710) with Mark Willard and Mychal Thompson. Jerry Buss died in February of complications from cancer. Jeanie Buss said her father might have been the key to keeping free agent center Dwight Howard, who left as a free agent to the Houston Rockets. "When it came time to try to convince Dwight to stay, we lost the best closer in the business in Dr. Buss," she said.

Lakers co-owner and executive Jeanie Buss doesn't think Phil Jackson is done coaching. "It has to be the right situation," Buss said Thursday during a live radio segment on ESPN Los Angeles (710 AM). Buss, who is engaged to Jackson, said the former Lakers coach still has "that need where he's got to coach something. " Early last season, the Lakers fired Mike Brown but hired Coach Mike D'Antoni after interviewing Jackson for the position. According to Buss, Jackson believes the current roster is well-suited for D'Antoni.

Dwight Howard looks like Tarzan, but plays like Jane. He is a second-rate star going to a second-rate city. Perfect fit. Good riddance! William David Stone Beverly Hills :: Why is Phil Jackson bad-mouthing Dwight Howard over his decision to leave the Lakers? Isn't this the same Phil Jackson who was offered the coaching job at the Lakers, asked for 48 hours to think it over, then was called the next evening around midnight to learn they gave the job to someone else? Why does Phil stand up for the team that said no to him?

The Miami Heat challenged the Lakers' NBA record of 33 straight wins, but fell short in March with 27. On Wednesday, Jeanie Buss, part-owner and executive of the Lakers, reached out to the Washington Kastles of World TeamTennis for their 34th consecutive victory. "Winning 33 consecutive games was an amazing accomplishment by our 1971-72 Lakers team, as evidenced by the fact that no other team has come close to reaching it for over 40 years now," Buss said. "On behalf of the Buss family and the Lakers family, I want to congratulate the Washington Kastles, their players, and our good friends Billie Jean King and Ilana Kloss on this milestone accomplishment of theirs.

The rules changed when the league adopted the 2011 collective bargaining agreement, but Lakers executive and owner Jeanie Buss is confident the franchise will navigate its way back to the top. "We are in 100% in support of those agreements, but as much as they'd like to try to revenue share and make things equal -- our basketball expertise, they can't revenue share away from us," Buss said.  "I believe that as they keep trying to make things more...

A week ago at a talk about his memoir, "Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success," at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, Jackson said he'd be kidding himself to consider another coaching position. "When I was done I knew I was done -- physically it was over," Jackson said. "Even after I got a knee replacement and a prostatectomy in the last year and a half. " A more recent dialogue with The Times at an event for Time Warner Cable Media on Wednesday revealed a much more ambiguous stance.

As Jeanie graciously answered questions about the team's first year with Time Warner Cable SportsNet, Jackson sat quietly.
