The Los Angeles Lakers took their team picture on Wednesday, and they did something very cool to honor their late owner. A chair between Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol in the bottom row was left open, and the Los Angeles Times’ Eric Pincus says that was done to honor Dr. Jerry Buss. Buss died Feb. 18 at the age of 80. He bought the team in 1979, and the team won 10 championships under his watch. He would probably be proud of their recent run that has them in playoff contention.
