Los Angeles Lakers Owner Jim Buss has received the brunt of the criticism for the teams lackluster performance during the NBA's regular season.  Recently Buss indicated that if the Lakers aren't contenders in the next 3-4 years, he will walk away.  

“I was laying myself on the line by saying, if this doesn’t work in three to four years, if we’re not back on the top — and the definition of top means contending for the Western Conference, contending for a championship — then I will step down because that means I have failed,” he said. “I don’t know if you can fire yourself if you own the team … but what I would say is I’d walk away and you guys figure out who’s going to run basketball operations because I obviously couldn’t do the job.”
