^^^^ all that. RIP.

And didn't Buss start Prime Ticket? Which changed how L.A. fans got to watch the Kings and Lakers on TV. Before PT, all we got to watch were road games, and the Kings would show maybe 20 games a season?? (anyone have an old pocket schedule they can check? and I loved the old schedules: Kings schedule on one side, Lakers on the other) The rest of the games were Bob Biller on the radio.
