Jerry Buss On The Lakers

Jerry Buss on the Lakers and Los Angeles:

“One of the first things I tried to do when I bought the team was to make it an identification for this city, like Motown in Detroit,” he says. “I try to keep that identification alive. I’m a real Angeleno. I want us to be part of the community.”

“Los Angeles is about diversity, and so are the Lakers,” he says.
