PLAYERS: Jim Buss

Via Crossover Chronicles:

We love it when the Taiwanese animators put their spin on the NBA.  The Buss family, however, might not share our enthusiasm for this particular video.  

Jim Buss is flat-out called an idiot (he drives around in a "short buss" and wears a bucket on his head). And the Lakers are a bunch of old, walker-using, has-beens who will basically inspire riots as they try to run Mike D'Antoni's "7 seconds or less" offense.  

I think it's safe to say the folks in Taiwan were solidly "Team Phil" in this case.
