    these 3 legends more than deserve to be in the HOF. Long time over due if you ask me, then again time also helps make legends become more legendary. Tex’s contribution to the game is definitely understated. his development of the triangle, to being the core to our current dynasty. his name will live on in Lakers & basketball lore. Dr. Buss is the definition of what a sports owner should be. Dynamic, listens to the fans, passionate, yet does not interfere with the business. Jamaal is smooth as silk, no need to say anything more.
