The Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss says she’ll never lead the team to tank because fans deserve a “quality product” from the franchise.

“Some people may debate the idea of tanking for several years,” Buss said. “My dad never did that in 32 years. It’s just not the way he would’ve seen the Lakers brand, to be at the bottom of the standings, year after year.

“He always felt that the fans invested their time and their money in your team, and you have to perform for them. If you don’t, then they’re gonna move on and find something else to spend their time and money on. They deserve a quality product.”
