Winning Time Got Some Strong Praise From Lakers Owner Jeanie Buss As Fans Rally Around The HBO Show For A Third Season 

Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty is nearly finished with its second season on HBO and, at present, there are concerns about its future on the premium cable channel. 

The sports dramedy has been able to amass a solid following, but it’s been suggested that ratings haven’t been too strong this year. 

So fans and Jeff Perlman (who wrote the book on which the show is based) have been rallying around the show. 

As they implore more people to watch so that a third season will be ordered, Lakers owner Jeanie Buss is weighing in on the series. And surprisingly, she had some high praise to share. 

Many of the people depicted on the show – including Jeanie Buss – have been somewhat tepid about the show up to this point. 

So it was somewhat surprising when she revealed on X (formerly known as Twitter) that she’d met up with Winning Time EP Rodney Barnes to discuss the show. 

She shared a photo from their meeting and added a (mostly) positive message about watching the second season. 

Check out the post for yourself:

Though Jeanie Buss hadn’t spoken out much about Winning Time up to this point, she had previously shared praise for lead actor John C. 

Reilly, who plays her dad – late owner Jerry Buss. Reilly recalled meeting Jeanie at a Lakers game, where she recounted a memory involving her father, who died at age 80 in 2013. 

Jeanie revealed to Reilly that her dad was an admirer of his work, specifically his performance in 2002’s Chicago. 

Her praise of Reilly aside, the exec also gushed about a promo HBO released to showcase the remainder of Season 2.
