This maybe the end to our franchise people. Jim Buss is destroying everything.

I wish the best for Dr. Buss & hope he recovers.......I hope before he dies he gives full control to Jeanie.....it's the only chance we have.

Heard he has some kind of cancer. Nash said he visited Buss and had long basketball talk with him. even he says Buss is fighting something big

I guess he is getting up there in age. Cancer is tough fight for anyone, hopefully he gets better soon. :cheers:

This team is doing nothing for his health.

At some point the body cannot fight to defend itself anymore. Jerry Buss is a man who earned his territory. When he became king of the jungle, he didnt abuse his power as an NBA owner, but made sure that laker fans everywhere appreciated the team he brought to the top on an annual basis. For that we thank him, and we hope that he can recover. But if not, this is just his time.

At his age it would be incredibly difficult to battle cancer. I hope for the best, but realistically this doesn't sound like a good situation. I agree with DKLaker. Let's hope he gives Jeanie the majority of the power. This could be the end of an era for the Lakers. Without Dr. Buss and with Kobe on his way out it might be rebuilding over again, but this time with Jimmy running things.... that's means a long time of rebuilding. There was something they were talking about on ESPN before and that was what happens in California when someone passes away that owns a business like this. There was some kind of law about how bad the taxes are or something like that. I can't remember exactly what it was but it would hurt the Lakers very bad financially, which is part of the reason they have all these contracts that fall off in 2014. Let's hope Dr. Buss is able to recover.

i read about this the other day, the death tax. owner ship can borrow money against the time warner deal tho supposedly so it's not a huge deal.
