RIP Jerry Buss

I'm a Laker fan by no means but went to pay my respects to one of the greatest owners of all time. Dr. Jerry Buss died today at 80. RIP to a HOF legend, and condolences to the Buss family and the Laker family.

My office is a few blocks from Staples Center and I feel that there is some sort of cloud and silence draped over the city. A sad day for Lakers, Los Angeles, and the NBA in general.

Not something to really think about right now, but I just hope that Jim Buss can be half the owner that his father was.

A couple of friends and I took a trip to Vegas in '07 and ran into him at the MGM. He was very personable and probably talked with us for 10 minutes. Not a Lakers fan myself, but he seemed like a really good guy.

RIP Jerry.

RIP Dr. Buss... I hope Jim Buss & Jeanie can do half as well as you did. We were in the finals 48% of the time since you bought the team... That's amazing.

    • It is the off-season and winning online competitions is kinda our thing.   Let's see if we can't swing this thing.  The Pats need to go home.  We must fight the Evil League of Evil coalition. 
    •   So are you upset that Hillary lost and we stopped investigating her?  Or that in an alternate reality, Hillary won and no one is talking about Russia?  I'm trying to see your point, but alas, you might be too clever for me. Or are we back to it's not fair to expect Trump NOT to have Russian ties because of business interests?  Again, all Trump had to do was completely break from his companies, and he did not.  And we're seeing some serious Russian interests in Trump winning, and a lot of contact between Trump's campaign officials and advisers, which is good or bad? I'm not sure the point you're trying to make.  Is it "yay, Trump won so we can investigate Russian interference with the election and administration!"  Or is it "Boo, if Hillary won she wouldn't be investigated!" Hillary lost.  People came out for Trump in the rust belt. Now that people are looking at Trump, what he's said, what laws he's trying to pass, etc; a lot of information is coming out.  Is that bad?  Or is it just that the media is being unfair to Trump? Maybe I'm just not smart enough to get it.
    • I highly doubt this will upset anyone, unless they are trolling that is.
