one of the great owners in nba basketball dies




jerry buss has died, and nba basketball and the los angeles lakers in particular will miss this visionary owner. he completely transformed the lakers and the league itself. the will to do whatever it takes to put a winner on the court defined him. in a way, i am glad that he no longer has to witness the mess that his son, jim buss, has made of the laker franchise.

as a bit of trivia and a tie to utah, jerry buss was born in salt lake city.
