We witnessed professional sports greatest poker player constantly and Consistently know when to go all in and when to fold em, he lived fast, played hard, and loved his lakers. Always owned them as a fan first, money always came second. Championship or bust for over 3 decades. A man who bought the lakers because he was tired of them losing to the celtics, took it upon himself to end that. The greatest laker fan ever, and a man who should be the bench mark for all owners.

Hope to see his statue in front of staples put up one day, overseeing the rest of them as he always did. As the franchise has always had greatness dr buss was always looking over it all

A tragic loss.

It amazes me how he took ownership in 1979 and has kept the Lakers in contention, and showing he cared for the team.

Such a sad season.

The Lakers made it to the finals 48% of the years under Jerry. That is pure insanity.

lol i'm not jumping off the bandwagon. there's a difference between losing faith in your team and jumping on the bandwagon. my confidence with this team is an all time low, but i'm still a fan of em.

Many NBA teams even wish to be in the playoffs once.

It just shows how devoted Dr. Buss was for this this team to be and remain successful.
