That doesn’t mean, however, that the enigmatic superstar didn’t get close with Lakers owner Jerry Buss.
So you could imagine Rodman was pretty sad when the news came that Buss had passed away Monday. Coincidentally, Rodman...

He would spend a ton and ruthlessly cut players. Jerry Buss was a more civilized version of that, but with just as much success. Maybe more.Yesterday, Buss died at the age of 80. He was battling cancer...
