Everyone did damn good, but we all knew (if you're old enough) that Magic's speech would be last...and have the most impact. Can't say that was fair to anyone else, haha. Magic went through a lot growing up, and Buss changed his life.

"Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come."

Kobe's speech (around 5:30)


The first guy singing looked kind of creepy.

EDIT: That's why his voice was familiar. Davis Gaines is the Phantom of the Opera.

I was thinking WTF. I couldn't figure out why he was speaking.

I maybe alone in this but I would've loved to hear Derek Fisher speak about Mr. Buss.

Kobe's and Magic's speech, both were very heartfelt, its crazy how dr buss was like a father to both. Started with magic, at age 19. Then kobe, at 17 (pretty much been there for half of kobes life).

The first song was from "Toy Story," the last song was from Sinatra, and in between, the stage flashed photos of Jerry Buss hanging out with his grandchildren, his buddy Hugh Hefner, and his poker chips.

Phil Jackson threw a barb at Jerry West. Kobe Bryant popped a jab at Phil Jackson. Shaquille O'Neal took a shot at himself.

And, of course, the wonderfully quirky memorial service Thursday for the wonderfully quirky Lakers owner would not have been complete without someone who was nearly a memorial crasher.

His name was Greg Tomlinson, he is a friend of Jim Buss, and he was an extremely late addition to the program, thus surprising many of the estimated 3,500 mourners at the private Nokia Theatre event by jumping up on the stage before guys like David Stern, Bryant and Magic Johnson.

Tomlinson acknowledged he had met Jerry Buss only a handful of times, and admitted he didn't even know the origin of the "Doctor" designation, but he said he had spoken to his buddy Jim on Wednesday night and been authorized to speak, "as a voice of the extended family of Laker fans."

"I'm not a season-ticket holder, I'm not the guy sitting courtside, but if any of you guys have some [tickets], I'm here for you," he said.

Nobody in the stunned audience laughed. But Jerry Buss probably would have howled. As memorials go, this was pure Showtime, an entertaining reflection of Buss' 80 years in all their integrity, generosity, competitiveness and craziness.


It was a family friend whom Jim Buss asked to talk from a fan perspective. I heard on the radio that everyone in the family was on board with the decision because they felt it was unique to the memorial.
