The Lakers will never be the same now that team owner Jerry Buss passed away this season.
Buss brought flash, "Showtime," titles (10) and much more during his time with the team and this season's Lakers team honored Buss in one awesome way.
During their team photo (h/t Larry Brown Sports) the Lakers left one empty chair in honor of Buss. A very classy move by the organization since without Buss, the Lakers probably would have never become the franchise as we know them today.
