    RIP Dr. Buss. Laker owner Jerry Buss passed away this am. He had a huge impact on the NBA, really re-energized the league. He will be missed by this Lakers fan!

    He'll be missed by non-laker fans too, especially poker fans.

    RIP

    I truly believe Dr. Buss had a big impact on Directv becoming the sports leader.

    Was he involved with NFL Sunday Ticket?

    Either way, he will be missed by NBA fans.

    I moved the thread to the OT, but to honor his passing and influence on sports, I've left a moved thread marker that will last longer than normal.

    Peace,
    Tom

    KTLA 5 broke the news first before Time Warner 691. When I turned to 691, they were replaying interviews from the Lakers loosing to the Clippers.
