Many blessings and prayers to Dr. Buss. Legend amongst legends, true basketball royalty.

I fear for the future of the organization without him at the helm, he was the rock and stability of the franchise which has been disolving into madness.

Terrible news, I had no idea his condition was this serious, or that he had cancer in the first place. Very sad to hear indeed. I imagine he's well taken care of and with his family by his side.

Haven't had a chance to come till now but this is extremely sad news. I really hope Dr. Buss pulls through but from I've read these will be his last moments. Just makes this season even that much greater of a disappointment knowing that a team that should've been a monster is going out on a whimper, what a crappy season this has been :man5:
I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

I hope he gets better. He is responsible for bringing showtime to L.A. sports. From Chick to Magic, to Shaq & Kobe.

He will be missed. If he goes because of this, I hope he goes peacefully.

Thoughts go out to Dr. Buss and his family. This is bigger than basketball, of course. But he is the greatest owner in professional sports, ever. The best.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Not sure how credible this blogger is but a handful of NBA reporters are following her and retweeting her

I have an update on Dr. Buss' health. He probably won't make it beyond the weekend. His pacemaker has been turned off.

What's a pacemaker?
Before long, someone recognized Phil Jackson sitting in the front seat, and then the rocks began to fly. Revelers pelted the bus and shook it, mocking the Lakers at their lowest moment.


It was painful,” Lakers forward Pau Gasol(notes) said. “It is a feeling that I want to keep in my mind for every single minute that I’m out there playing them.

A pacemaker is a little device which is inserted into a person's chest. For people who have had heart complications, it helps the them regulate their heartbeat

My prayers are with his family right now.

He's still on the respirator, it's basically the only thing keeping him alive. He's unresponsive

He's been in the hospital about 9 months was moved to ICU 2 months ago. It's esophageal cancer. Prayers for the Buss family

Without Dr. Buss, there would be no Staples Center, there would be no LA Live... The success that he has brought to the Lakers & this city can never be measured... He is more than a great owner, he is a philanthropist & a true gentleman. Most people in L.A. have no idea how much this man has done for this city... Godspeed Dr. Buss & Thank You for a lifetime of Laker Basketball.

Unlike Chick, he goes without seeing his team raising a banner...so sad.

This season was doomed from the start with the Mike Brown fiasco, they held on that clown for too long. He should have been fired before training camp.
