Catching the Buss to the Hall of Fame

Written by: Dustin Malcolm

Weeks before the football season starts, fanatics scramble to their computers to do research on which of their favorite players are going to have breakout seasons and draft them to their fantasy teams. The fever to play fantasy sports has caught fire in other sports as well, giving fans an opportunity to be their own Sportscenter anchors in the mastery of common sports statistics.

But what if we were to think about applying the fantasy principle to people and things outside of common sports? If we were to have a fantasy draft of professional sports team owners, who would you clamour to draft with your first pick? Who would be your Kobe Bryant, your Albert Pujols, or your Chris Johnson?

When choosing the Mount Rushmore of professional owners, Jerry Buss unarguably deserves a marquee spot. Even fans of other organizations can appreciate his uncanny ability to find a way to make the puzzle pieces fit in making his Los Angeles Lakers contenders every year.
