For a man who watched Magic dazzle Showtime with Big Game James and Kareem, one should be blown away at such a statement; but as a fan you have to sit back and enjoy his passion for winning and his refusal to settle for anything less.
The ten titles won since his purchase of the Lakers makes Dr. Buss the winningest owner in the NBA in that time frame. Even more daunting is that those ten also top any other North American professional sports club by any one owner. David Stern once said that Jerry Buss has built the Lakers into a franchise with a standard, “by which all L.A. sports franchises and most American franchises get measured.”
When the celebrities scatter around their courtside seats and the lights stagger the skies above Staples Center before all home games, you better believe Jerry Buss is in his luxury box watching his passion and his creation unfold.
