Dr. Jerry Buss Memorial Service Open Thread

Stephen Dunn

A place to gather and discuss the memorial service being held for Dr. Jerry Buss.

Today the city of Los Angeles, the Lakers organization, and the friends and family of Dr. Jerry Buss will gather at Nokia Theater to hold a memorial service for the legendary owner who has passed away. There's quite the slate for speakers at the service, including current Lakers players Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol (who will speak solely in Spanish).

The service begins at 3 p.m. pacific standard time and will be airing on local television station in Southern California, nationally on NBA TV and Time Warner SportsNet, and streaming online at KTLA.com, Lakers.com, and multiple other websites.

The Lakers.com stream can be found here

The list of expected speakers is as follows:

  • Jim Hill (emcee)
  • Timothy Leiweke
  • Johnny Buss
  • Frank Mariani
  • David Stern
  • Jerry West
  • Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
  • Phil Jackson
  • Shaquille O'Neal
  • Pau Gasol (will speak in Spanish only)
  • Pat Riley
  • Kobe Bryant
  • and Magic Johnson

We here at Silver Screen and Roll would once again like to thank Dr. Jerry Buss for everything he has done for the franchise, and the city of Los Angeles.
