Default Beyond the Glory: The Buss Family

Watching in right now on FoxSports
Buss bought the Lakers, Kings & Forum for $67m.
He is worth about $750m today.

more to come as I watch it.

the children, for the most part, don't communicate amongst each other.

definately looks like this is going to be Jimmy's team to run.

both of the sons seem dysfunctional...trying to "find themselves". they are all really children of the 70's. If you were a late-teenager during the 70s, you would likely have issues too.

they said HE was worth that amount. I would be surprised if that is really all he is worth because the Laker Org has to be worth $500m+. I know he has other significant holdings.... I don't know.

Nice acquisition at $67m...then drafting Magic...then the League really takes off.
