Dr. Jerry Buss (Jan. 27, 1933 - Feb. 18, 2013) was the greatest owner in NBA history. In fact, the chemist and card player was arguably the best owner in sports history. The day after this year's All-Star Game in Houston, the NBA's brightest star faded away. With Buss's passing, David Stern's Association lost its most accomplished boss, savviest visionary and coolest 80-year-old.
Q: I’d like to see some perspective on the first great L.A. Laker, Elgin Baylor. Jerry West, his great teammate, suggested that a statue of Elgin should be in prominence there at Staples Center. I agree. What do you think?
