It's only been a few days since the Lakers owner, Jerry Buss passed, and he's already being missed like craaaazzzzy.
On Wednesday night, Kobe Bryant took center court at the Staples Center to pay tribute to the NBA legend and to get the crowd to join him in a moment of silence, and once the lights went off… we couldn't help but tear up.
Bryant was lucky enough to deliver his speech without crying all over his warmup suit, but as soon as Magic Johnson began to show his respects toward Jerry at the ESPN studios, the water works almost went everywhere.
Dr. Buss died at 80 from kidney failure, which stemmed from complications from cancer.
The NBA will never be the same again.
Rest in peace, Jerry.
Ch-ch-check out the moving tribute (above)!
