Congratulations to Dr. Buss who is doing a great job at running the best franchise.

ESPN: Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss has been elected to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, multiple sources within the organization confirmed.

“My dream really was to have the Lakers and Los Angeles identified as one and the same,” Buss recently told ESPNLosAngeles.com “When I was just a fan, I used to really object when I would go to see the Lakers playing New York and most of the crowd would be ex-New Yorkers cheering for the Knicks. Then the next time, it would be the same with some other team. When you think New York, you think Yankees. I wanted that to be the case here as well. That when you think L.A., you think Lakers. I believe I’ve accomplished that.”
