Beyond The Buzzer:
The Los Angeles Lakers illuminated Jerry Buss’ chair in his empty suite on Wednesday night and held a touching tribute prior to Wednesday night’s matchup with the Celtics. Kobe Bryant took the mic at halfcourt and proclaimed his appreciation for “the greatest owner in sports, ever” saying:
“He was a brilliant and incredible owner, but even a better person with a great heart…His vision has transcended the game and we are all, all spoiled by his vision & by his drive to win year after year after year.”
The Lakers also portrayed a moving tribute on the jumbotron set to the tune of Greenday’s “Time of Your Life”:

He was battling cancer...
