Bill Sharman calls Jerry Buss “the absolute best owner”

Below is a statement former Lakers coach Bill Sharman provided to the Daily News on the passing of Lakers owner Jerry Buss:

“Dr. Buss was the absolute best owner that I ever worked for…..and I worked for many including Jack Kent Cook and George Steinbrenner,” Sharman wrote in a statement. “He was a very remarkable person…..brilliant, but at the same time so kind and humble. He was a very loyal person to the people that he cared about, and I feel very blessed to have known him and shared such a great relationship with him all of these years. He is irreplaceable, but he has left a legacy that will last for many generations to come. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the entire Buss and Lakers family….he touched so many lives and he will be greatly missed by us all.”

Rasheed Hazzard, a former Lakers scout and son of late former Laker Walt Hazzard: "We always told Dr. Buss at the games that he kept my dad alive. He gave him a reason to live. That's what Dr. Buss understood. He understood people. That was his gift and why you would run through a wall for him, because he understood people and took care of people. He got Jerry West to sign [my dad] to a contract when he was about to go into open heart surgery with a chance to die. Dr. Buss wanted him to have a three-year extension just in case so my mom would be taken care of and she wouldn't have to struggle for anything. That's the kind of guy he is. A great guy. Loyal. A loyal friend and great owner. The greatest owner in sports history. I don't know if anybody can really argue that."

Leon Rose, I think that's his name, said a similar story about his former agent Magic Johnson, where Dr. Buss helped him through his times after the HlV.

My condolences to the Buss family, God bless y'all.

Celtics' CEO Wyc Grousbeck
"I had the pleasure of working with Jerry closely for the last 10 years on league matters. He was a wonderful business colleague, brilliant competitor and became a good friend. Although our teams competed in two Finals during that time, the friendship never wavered. He will be greatly missed and the entire Celtics organization offers condolences to the Buss family and Lakers organization."

Pacers' owner Herb Simon
"The passing of Dr. Jerry Buss is a tremendous loss, not only for the Los Angeles Lakers, but the NBA. I have known Dr. Buss since my brother and I bought the Pacers back in 1983, we have worked on things together as owners in the NBA and I have had the utmost respect for him. My family and the Pacers' family send our condolences to the Buss family and the Los Angeles Lakers."

Warriors owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber
"On behalf of the Golden State Warriors organization, we extend our thoughts and prayers to the entire Buss family.

His overall contribution to the league over three-plus decades leaves an indelible mark that will never be forgotten."

Phoenix Suns managing partner Robert Sarver
"On behalf of the entire Phoenix Suns organization, our thoughts and prayers are with theBuss family. As an NBA owner, Dr. Buss was in a league of his own.

@SteveKerrTNT
This photo reminds me of my childhood, growing up a Laker fan in LA. Thank you Dr. Buss- R.I.P. pic.twitter.com/bUYgt2CP”

Celtics' CEO Wyc Grousbeck
"I had the pleasure of working with Jerry closely for the last 10 years on league matters. He was a wonderful business colleague, brilliant competitor and became a good friend. Although our teams competed in two Finals during that time, the friendship never wavered. He will be greatly missed and the entire Celtics organization offers condolences to the Buss family and Lakers organization."

Pacers' owner Herb Simon
"The passing of Dr. Jerry Buss is a tremendous loss, not only for the Los Angeles Lakers, but the NBA. I have known Dr. Buss since my brother and I bought the Pacers back in 1983, we have worked on things together as owners in the NBA and I have had the utmost respect for him. My family and the Pacers' family send our condolences to the Buss family and the Los Angeles Lakers."

Warriors owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber
"On behalf of the Golden State Warriors organization, we extend our thoughts and prayers to the entire Buss family. Dr. Buss set an incredible standard of excellence that each of us strives to achieve, but few attain. His overall contribution to the league over three-plus decades leaves an indelible mark that will never be forgotten."

Phoenix Suns managing partner Robert Sarver
"On behalf of the entire Phoenix Suns organization, our thoughts and prayers are with theBuss family. As an NBA owner, Dr. Buss was in a league of his own. I loved listening to his stories and appreciated his willingness to always engage in discussion and offer me positive encouragement and advice. He will be greatly missed."

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa
"Dr. Jerry Buss was a cornerstone of the Los Angeles sports community and his name will always be synonymous with his beloved Lakers. It was through his stewardship that the Lakers brought "Showtime" basketball and numerous championship rings to this great city."

Tim Leiweke, president and CEO of AEG
"Dr. Buss was our partner, our mentor and our friend. He was kind enough to allow us into his world and much of the success we enjoyed at Staples Center and L.A. Live is directly attributed to him. I do not believe we will ever find anyone quite like him. Our prayers and thoughts are with [daughter] Jeanie and the entire Buss family."
Thank you this was emotional to read.


Ditto. Thanks for posting all of those. Man, I was doing just fine until I read all of those.

Not only am I sad that the greatest sports owner is no longer with us, I'm sad/scared about where the Lakers franchise will goes from here. After Chick died, a part of the Lakers legacy died. Now that Dr. Buss is gone, another big part of the Lakers legacy died as well. I never had the pleasure of meeting the man, but he's one of my idols with what he was able to accomplish in his lifetime and the manner in which he accomplished everything.

Kurt Rambis‏✔ @KRambis
Dr. Jerry Buss was a true friend and inspiring mentor who helped me achieve a childhood dream of winning a NBA title, and eventually several NBA titles. I will always be thankful to Dr. Buss for the opportunities he provided me and for all he has done for the entire basketball community. He was a visionary, an extremely intelligent and giving man who turned the Lakers into a world-renowned franchise and he was an integral part in catapulting the NBA to the level we are at now. Dr. Buss was not only an owner, but also a friend and mentor to all the players and was the reason the Los Angeles Lakers franchise became so successful. He understood that teams need talent to win and made players want to play for him and the city. He put everyone in a winning environment. Dr. Jerry Buss will be deeply missed by basketball fans worldwide, myself, my wife Linda, our children Jesse, Jordan and Ali, the Lakers organization, and the entire NBA community.
