Miami HEAT Statement on Dr. Jerry Buss

“The Miami HEAT expresses its condolences to the Buss Family, Laker Nation and the entire NBA for the loss of Dr. Jerry Buss. He was an extraordinary man and a true visionary for this sport. The legacy and record of achievement by the Lakers during his stewardship is obvious and part of the history books, but his friendship and the tremendous counsel and leadership he brought to the NBA has profoundly impacted this league, the game of basketball and the world of sports. We are all very thankful for his presence and mourn today for the loss of our true friend.”
