    LA Lakers Owner Jerry Buss Dying Of Cancer, Family & Friends At His Bedside

    Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss is dying of cancer and is currently surrounded by family and friends at his hospital bedside, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

    The businessman and billionaire is at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com that Lakers players have been calling with well-wishes and even stopping by to see him in what they expect to be his final days.

    “Jerry isn’t doing well and it’s quite sad, but he’s surrounded by loved ones,” the insider told RadarOnline.com.


    “The cancer is just too much and it looks like this is the end for him.”

    Jerry purchased the Lakers in 1979 and he’s seen great success in the franchise, winning 10 NBA championships.


    Riddled with health problems for the last few years, Jerry was hospitalized in 2011 with a blood clot and then had surgery in August 2012 for an undisclosed reason and was expected to make a full recovery.

    Turning 79 just weeks ago on January 27, Jerry has not attended a Lakers game during the 2012-2013 season because of health concerns.

    Not really the type of comment that is appropriate.

    Very sad stuff. Dr. Buss will be in my prayers.

    A sad thing for any family to go through. Hopefully the kids can put the unimportant basketball stuff that reportedly has them at odds and pull together through this.

    What was wrong with that? His son is an egomaniac that made the decision to hire the new coach because he hates his sister and Phil Jackson. Hence, he is leaving the wrong person in charge. I am supposed to cry over an old rich man I have never met? ...

    Don't mean to be ghoulish, but I agree. If Jim Buss past picks and moves are any gauge, I think Jeanne would be a much better pick. Not to mention she would bring along a pretty good Basketball mind as her boyfriend.

    Look, I sympathize for the gentlemen. I hope that he is able to enjoy his final days and pass away I'm comfort and peace. I am sorry that the man who built the greatest teams of all time, who now has cancer, must also endure the teenage politics of Kobe and Dwight.

    I wish they had a "Groan" button around here for your previous comment. I think the media is making a bigger deal out of Kobe/Dwight than need be they are so desperate for Kobe/Shaq II

    Kobe is near the end of his career he knows it so its probably why he seems strangely Zen(no pun intended) about the whole thing in a year or two this won't be his problem it will be Jim Buss's.

    Dwight OTOH is getting the LeBron burden of can he win a ring or he's well on his way.

    I agree Jerry is leaving the wrong person in charge and I hope his kids can put their differences aside at this difficult time. This is unfortunately something I dealt with myself more or less.

    Well it's a tough break in the end, although 79 isn't too shabby a run. He had a hellava prime run, being a top NBA owner when he was in his 40's to 70's. Think about that. Many of us on here are 40+. Imagine being this age and owning the elite NBA team. Boston was great, but the Lakers were Showtime, not just great but an event in a city that is all about being an event.

    King of the NBA world is a pretty sweet life, but even the great ones eventually hit the end. He should be in a position to deal with this as comfortably as anyone could hope.


    We'll see this same story about Mark Cuban in 30-40 years probably. Just the way it goes unfortunately. That's why it's critical to appreciate the people and moments while you can.

    "So, which one of you guys is going to come in second?" - Larry Bird before the 3 point contest. He won.

    I absolutely despise his team, but I would never allow that to translate to someone's personal life off the court when it comes to life and death.

    I send my thoughts and prayers to him, his family, and YES even the Lakers organization as this process unfolds.

    Never like reading that kind of news, but as was pointed out, 79 isn't a bad run. Not that it would make him feel any better to hear that right now.

    I've come to have a good deal of respect for Jerry Buss. I'm not sure the Lakers will keep their aura of being continual champions once he's gone.

    A man is dying and people want to crack jokes. Every now and then there are a few comments made on this forum by certain individuals that make me sick and ashamed to be fans of the same team.

    However, this thread shouldnt be about basketball but about the Buss family and their loss of a father, brother, husband, ect. I'm sure that he has impacted many people's lives in a positive way during his 79 years. My thoughts and condolences are with the Buss family and his closest friends. Losing someone to cancer is a heartbreaking experience.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.
