as Hroi mentioned... Buss lived the dream and was lucky enough to be in a place/position so tolerant of a long long life of excess, indulgences, gambling, and wild success. damn awesome.
I endured watching the allstar game last night... and the sideline interview with dwight was horrific. dwight came off contrived and still waffling on how to answer if he's going to let the healthier west all star big men play more because of the situation. it was a fucking knee high slow pitch softball question to answer, but he then waffled in is irritating way.
the thing with the lakers is they have some big decisions to make in lieu of howard being the new face of the franchise.
