The man had a nose for business and was a major player on how we view NBA basketball today. Here's a quote from ProBasketTalk: "Buss is widely recognized as the most successful franchise owner in NBA history, having purchased the Lakers (along with the Forum and the Kings of the NHL) for $67.5 million back in 1979. Buss later sold the Kings in 1988. Forbes magazine recently valued the Lakers at more than $1 billion."

Rest in peace, Jerry.
