    Doctor Jerry Buss has left an amazing legacy behind and the Lakers organization needs to honor that legacy by continuing to champion the love of victory and success.

    RIP Dr. Buss, easily the best sports owners ever. A great guy that everyone liked/respected. I expect the Lakers to raise a banner @ Staples center/ make a statue of him because he is the reason why they are the greatest sports franchise. His last championship came against rival boston in a classic 7 game series and thats the first team we play after his passing.
