Memorial service for Jerry Buss set for Thursday
The memorial service for Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss will be held tomorrow, Thursday at 3PM PST at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles across the street from Staples Center. Only invited guests are permitted, but local news channels will broadcast live. There will probably be an enormous presence of Lakers fans outside the venue.
Dr. Jerry Buss is one of the greatest owners in all of sports, and transformed the Lakers into a worldwide brand. He was 80 years at the time of his passing. The Lakers will honor Dr. Buss before their game against the rival Celtics tonight.
