Dr. Jerry Buss’ Basketball Hall of Fame Induction

Last night, Dr. Jerry Buss was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield. On behalf of Lakers fans everywhere, we want to congratulate him on an unprecedented legacy he has left our team. As our logo reads, “In Buss We Trust.” Welcome to the Hall of Fame, Jerry!

    GOAT OWNER

  • http://www.jackyang.info Jack Y.

    Outstanding! Too bad he didn’t credit Mitch Kupchake.

      True, he could have mentioned him, but considering the amount of people he could have thanked, I think he did very well.
      He deserves this honour as much or more than any other owner in sports.

    It’s clear that Jack ‘can’t’ Cooke, but Dr. Jerry Buss can. Recall that Buss received his Ph.D. in Chemistry. The Lakers have been ‘all’ about chemistry. Next year, that’s going to translate to another Championship.
    .
    Buss has helped to elevate the Lakers to world class status, and keep L.A. BIG on the sports map (despite ESPN’s discouraging attempts). We don’t have a football team now, and the Dodgers have been suffering lately (no Championships for a couple decades), so we RELY on the Lakers to keep us in the clouds. (ok, I left out Angels, Ducks, etc. — Anaheim … ok?).
    .
    Thank you Jerry Buss, for being the Lakers’ number one fan.

      I can’t “Cooke”? What does that even mean? I didn’t bash Buss. IMO, he’s the best owner in sports. What’s with the hate? Also, a pHD in Chemistry (science) has nothing to do with the chemistry you see between human beings. Quit being a smartass.

        obviously lacking in Lakers history 101 and immature in his own skin. unable to grasp Robert’s clever play of words to pay homage to a HOF owner.

        Why don’t you go to Philly Jack Y. They’ll welcome you like they did when Kobe lit up the 2002 All-Star game in MVP fashion.

        and Kupchak doesn’t need your backing… HOF Buss hired the man and mentored him under HOF Jerry West. Plus you can’t even spell the man’s name correctly. How ignorant is that.

    • Robert.

      Oh no, Jack — no slight intended, only compliments to Dr. Buss !!
      .
      The previous owner of the Lakers was named “Jack Kent Cooke” (nothing to do with you, Jack – just the same name). Cooke was a ‘famous’ owner of the Lakers, the Kings, and the Washington Redskins, and he also ‘built’ the Great Forum (Google it yourself). But, the Lakers started winning Championships when Dr. Buss took over – so my comment was about how Jack Kent Cooke couldn’t bring it home, but Jerry did !
      .
      Also, his Ph.D. is a great accomplishment (I have one too, actually). It was a play on the ‘chemistry’. And the Lakers did have ‘Great’ chemistry after Buss took over, too.
      .
      Nothing but love for the Great Dr. Buss !!
