The Bizarre and Wacky L.A. Lakers, Featuring Phil Jackson and Ronny TuriafThe AM Take: Hollywood stars are a touch eccentric, full of interesting quirks and random idiosyncrasies. These celebrities can often be found courtside at Lakers games, expecting the television cameras to shine on them during a timeout or break in action.

At times, the Lakers aren’t much different than their hi-profile fans. In the past, they’ve been ripe with gossip. This year, there has been little off-court drama, but the players and organization still have interesting moments.

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve seen some ‘interesting’ Laker clips on youtube. As always, watch the highlights, form an opinion, and give us your take on the wackiest clip in the comment box below.

Clip 1: Phil Jackson getting domesticated.

The Breakdown: Clearly, Jeannie Buss, the daughter of Lakers owner Jerry Buss, wears the pants in her relationship with The Zen.

Clip 2: Ronny Turiaf and Michael Cooper on 21.

The Breakdown: Not a bad debut, but no threat to Roper and Ebert.

Clip 3: Ronny Turiaf getting turned away at a trendy L.A. nightspot.

The Breakdown: Reservations only? Can’t Ronny get some love?
