Earlier this week it was announced that Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss’ health status is grim. JSJ was able to gather exclusive details about Dr. Buss’ current condition and the news isn’t good. I have an update on Dr. Buss’ health. He probably won’t make it beyond the weekend. His pacemaker has been turned off. — Jill Munroe (@StilettoJill) February 16, 2013   He’s still on the respirator, it’s basically the only thing keeping him alive. He’s unresponsive — Jill Munroe (@StilettoJill) February 16, 2013   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 — Jill Munroe (@StilettoJill) February 16, 2013   Dr. Buss purchased the Lakers and the Forum in 1979. He introduced the concept of “The Show” to the NBA. Placing celebrities court side, playing up the Laker girls and making the in-arena club concept a reality with “The Forum Club.” Dr. Buss’s family is at the hospital with him. Making the decision to have a loved one taken off of a respirator is an extremely difficult one. Sending love and light to the Buss family.
