Dodger statement on the passing of Lakers' owner Dr. Jerry Buss

The Los Angeles Dodgers organization extends its deepest sympathies to the Buss family and the Los Angeles Lakers' organization on the passing of one of the greatest owners in NBA history. Jerry Buss made great contributions to the sporting landscape of Los Angeles and America and was a true champion in every sense of the word. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Buss family.
