Jim drafted Bynum. That was 7 years ago. It's been Jim time for a while.

Jim rehired Phil, when Jerry was skeptical.

So Jim has been here when we missed the dance and was right there to get us back at the pinnacle.

Now Jerry was in charge in the 90s when we were NOTHING SPECIAL. No Magic, no MJ, no Stockton or Malone, no Barkley, no Payton, no Hall of Famers and no rings in the nineties.

It's not about Jim.

It's about the players who win titles like Jerry West and Magic and Kobe. It's about big men who help them like Wilt , Shaq , Kareem and hopefully Dwight.

It's about the role players like Goodrich , Cooper, McAdoo, Horry, Fisher, Artest, and hopefully Earl Clark and Jamison.

It's not about ownership. Or Clippers would not be having this type of season.

Not sure how credible this blogger is but a handful of NBA reporters are following her and retweeting her

I have an update on Dr. Buss' health. He probably won't make it beyond the weekend. His pacemaker has been turned off.

Pincus follows her so I wonder if he'll say anything on his Twitter in the next couple of hours

My sympathy to the Buss family.. I don't think they're shocked but defiantly sad.. He has been suffering a lot in the last couple of months ..


May god grant him and other sick people longer life ..

He's still on the respirator, it's basically the only thing keeping him alive. He's unresponsive

He's been in the hospital about 9 months was moved to ICU 2 months ago. It's esophageal cancer. Prayers for the Buss family

Hospital for 9 months?

Terrible.

I hope him and his family's suffering ends soon.

When the time does come, I hope it's peacefully. I hope he isn't in any pain.

Yeah when they've been suffering for some time you just want that suffering to come to an end. As much as you want them to pull through and you don't want to lose them you also understand you don't won't to see them in pain anymore. When I lost my father that's how it felt. I understand what the family must be going through. Thoughts and prayers with them and Dr Buss at this sad sad time.

Anyone hear of updates on him. They were saying he wouldn't make the weekend but yet its sunday night. Hoping that means it was wrong about how bad the thing was.

We won't hear many updates. The family requested the media not release any further info on his condition and I think at this point, they aren't providing any other info to anyone.
