Lakers Nation would like to take a moment to wish a very happy birthday to Dr. Jerry Buss, owner of the Lakers. Dr. Buss has been one of the greatest owners in professional sports since purchasing the Lakers in 1979. Since then he’s seen 10 championships from his Lakers, and will possibly go down in history as the greatest owner the NBA has ever seen.
It seems that we’re not the only one wishing birthday salutations to Dr. Buss, as team star Kobe Bryant is also pretty excited for the doctor’s birthday.
Dr Buss Bday. #GOE !

While Buss has taken a step back in recent years, his legacy will never diminish in the city of Los Angeles as well as the entire league.
Happy birthday, Dr. Buss!
