Kobe calling out Dwight... meanwhile word from a Laker fan pardna of mine (who was one leading the charge to fire Mike Brown) is that the rest of the team don't want to play with Kobe.  The end is near, lol

Updated Feb 18, 2013 11:44 AM ET       
Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss has died after a battle with cancer.

Buss, 79, had been hospitalized and had not attended any games this season after being a fixture in his luxury suite halfway up the arena behind the Lakers' bench. He maintained an extremely low public profile last year, emerging briefly to release a complimentary statement about Derek Fisher when the longtime Lakers guard was traded in a rare cost-cutting move in March.

Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Shaquille O'Neal, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar all visited Buss in the hospital at various stages after finding out about his condition, which was diagnosed at an unknown point last year.

Buss had been in the hospital numerous times the past two years. He underwent an undisclosed surgery last August and was admitted a month earlier for what the team called dehydration. He also was hospitalized in December 2011 for blood clots in his leg caused by excessive travel, according to the team.

Over the years, Buss gradually handed more power to his daughter Jeanie, in charge of the business side of the team, and son Jim, who oversees basketball operations.

Before his most recent medical issues, Buss continued to take part in decision making for the Lakers.

Buss weighed in on the hiring of Coach Mike D'Antoni in November and, a few months before that, was eager to meet Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, high-profile Lakers additions who visited him separately after being acquired.

"I just know how much he loved the game," said Clippers forward Lamar Odom, who won two championships in seven years with the Lakers, when he learned of Buss' declining health. "I know how much he put into it, whether it was traveling with us or just his effort that he put into us winning. He was the best. He was always close to his team and his players. It's tough to hear about that."

OWN UP TO IT
Franchise success or failure often can be traced to the top. We rank the five best and five worst NBA owners.
Buss received a doctorate in physical chemistry from USC, but it was a $1,000 investment in a Los Angeles apartment building that ultimately sparked a career in real-estate investment.

In 1979, Buss bought the Lakers from Jack Kent Cooke, along with the Forum, the NHL's Kings (which he later sold), and a ranch in the Sierra Nevada for a total of $67.5 million.

The Lakers franchise, buoyed by a lucrative TV deal with Time Warner Cable, was recently valued at $1 billion by Forbes magazine. Only one other NBA franchise, the New York Knicks, was deemed more valuable.

The Lakers have won 10 NBA championships since Buss purchased the team and 16 overall, one behind the Boston Celtics.

They are continually among the top-spending teams in player salary, and this season is no different. They have a $100-million payroll, the NBA's highest, and face luxury-tax penalties of another $30 million in an overwhelmingly disappointing season so far.

"When it comes down to it, Dr. Buss is a competitor," Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak said when Howard was acquired in a four-team trade in August. "And when it comes down to a decision about making a couple of dollars or a million dollars or $10 million or putting another banner up, he can't help himself. He chooses to go for the banner."

The Associated Press and Los Angeles Times contributed to this report.

RIP Senior Buss

Big loss for the Laker faithful.  I obviously didn't know him personally, but nothing but good things being said about him by former players and associates.  Turned a $1,000 dollar investment into some apartment complexes into a real estate empire, according to ESPN.  Bought the Lakers, the LA Kings and the Great Western Forum (precursor to the Staples Center for those who remember the Showtime Lakers of the 80s... when I was a fan) for $62 million.  What an investment it turned out to be.

Laker faithful, amazing 4th qtr and OT vs TO at Staples, Benjamin put down some amazing plays, including back to back 3's to send into OT.  Now we 1/2 game away from the 8th spot.  So question, we making the playoffs?  Tough final schedule, I think 8 of the last 10 on the road...
