Re: NBA 2012-13 Discussion

RIP Dr. Buss, the greatest owner in any major sport of his generation. Without him the NBA would not be the international success it is now. He brought a sense of showmanship and style fitting of the modern era of the NBA with his team's open, fast break attack, the Laker Girls, courting of movie stars, winning, etc. He was always classy in victory or defeat.

I remember going to a game at the Forum in the first year of his ownership and watching him step over seats on his way up to the Loge. I looked at him and thought, "now, that man is walking like he owns the place". RIP.
