Jerry Buss

Born Gerald Hatten Buss on Jan. 27,  1934 in Salt Lake City, UT

When Jerry Buss was growing up in the midst of the Depression in Wyoming, the only thing he could count on was a meal at the end of a bread line. He dug ditches, worked on the railroad and eventually got a PhD in physical chemistry from USC.

While working as an aerospace engineer, Buss and a fellow worker invested in an apartment building in Santa Monica. Twenty years later, after riding Southern California's real estate booms, their empire was worth about $350 million.

Then in 1979, Buss pulled off the biggest transaction of his life, a $67.5-million deal with Jack Kent Cooke to buy the Lakers, the Kings hockey team, the Forum and a California ranch in exchange for the lease to New York's Chrysler Building and several other properties. In all, the deal involved nine pieces of property; 12 escrows in three states; and more than 50 lawyers and advisors.

Glory days, including the Lakers' version of "Showtime," followed, as did multiple NBA championships with such players as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, James Worthy, Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant. Buss, who later sold the Los Angeles Kings and Forum,  has handed over the reins of the team to his daughter, Jeanie, who is executive vice president of business operations.

In 1985, Buss helped launch the Southern California sports cable channel Prime Ticket Network, which Rupert Murdoch bought in 1996 and which eventually became FSN West/Prime Ticket. Buss received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2006 for his role in starting the channel.

Biography

Through education, perseverance, and a lot of hard work, Jerry Buss put himself in a position in 1979 to purchase the Los Angeles Lakers and establish a stronghold on West Coast basketball. In doing so, Buss has left his mark on the City of Angels and the game of basketball. Exercising leadership that brought together some of the greatest players in history, matching them with brilliant coaches, innovative management, and groundbreaking marketing, Buss helped set the ownership standard for NBA franchises. Under Buss, the Lakers have featured legendary players such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, and Kobe Bryant as well as Hall of Fame coaches Pat Riley and Phil Jackson. The Lakers became a mainstay in the NBA Finals in the 1980s appearing in eight championship series and winning five titles. The Los Angeles Sparks captured two WNBA titles under the Laker boss as well. Buss served two terms as President of the NBA Board of Governors and helped launch the groundbreaking Prime Ticket Network, a cable system that televised all Lakers home games.

Early Life and Business Career

Buss worked his way through the University of Wyoming, graduating with a B.S. degree in two and a half years in 1953. He moved to Los Angeles and attended the University of Southern California, where he earned a M.S. and Ph.D. in physical chemistry by age 24.[2] Buss started as a chemist for the Bureau of Mines (now the Mine Safety and Health Administration); he then briefly worked in the aerospace industry and was on the faculty of USC's chemistry department. He originally went into real estate investing in order to provide an income so he could continue teaching. His first investment in the 1960s was $1,000 in a West Los Angeles apartment building. Finding great success in the real estate business, he pursued real estate investing full time. In 1979 Jerry purchased Pickfair Mansion in Beverly Hills from the estate of Mary Pickford.[2] He was also the co-owner of a real estate investment company called Mariani-Buss Associates with his long time business partner Frank Mariani.

Sports ownership

Buss became an owner in World Team Tennis, the Los Angeles Strings. He purchased the Los Angeles Lakers of the NBA along with the Los Angeles Kings hockey team of the NHL, The Forum, and a large ranch from Jack Kent Cooke in 1979. The purchase price, $67.5 million, made it the largest transaction in sports history at that time. Buss later sold the Kings, retaining ownership of the Lakers and The Forum. He then reached a major advertising agreement with Great Western Bank for the naming rights to The Forum, resulting in the official name of the building being changed to the Great Western Forum.

Later, when the WNBA was formed, Buss took charge of operating that league's Los Angeles franchise, the Los Angeles Sparks. Eventually, all three teams moved into a more modern arena in downtown Los Angeles: Staples Center, which opened in 1999. As part of the deal to move the Lakers into Staples Center, Buss sold the Great Western Forum (which was later reverted to its original name).

The Lakers have been very successful under Buss' ownership, winning 10 NBA championships with such players as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, James Worthy, Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant, and Pau Gasol. The Sparks also experienced their share of success with Buss at the helm, winning two WNBA championships with such players as Lisa Leslie, Tamecka Dixon and DeLisha Milton-Jones.

In 2002, when the WNBA was restructured to give its teams individual owners, Buss assumed outright ownership of the Sparks. He sold the team in 2006. Buss also owned the Los Angeles Lazers of the Major Indoor Soccer League. The Lazers also played in The Forum. The team folded in 1989 and the league folded three years later.

Poker player

Buss has been a high-stakes cash game poker player for many years, but recently he has been more active in tournament games. His best finishes include 3rd in the 1991 World Series of Poker seven-card stud event and 2nd place in the 2003 World Poker Tour Freeroll invitational. He has appeared in the GSN series High Stakes Poker and the NBC late-night series Poker After Dark.

Relationship with USC

In January 2008, Buss donated $7.5 million to USC's Department of Chemistry to fund two endowed chairs and an endowed scholarship fund for chemistry graduate students; the two chairs were to be named after his mentors at USC, professors Sidney Benson and David Dows. Buss is an inaugural member of the USC College Board of Councilors.[2]

Personal Life

Retired American professional basketball coach and former player Phil Jackson has been dating Jerry's daughter, Jeanie Buss (born 1961), since 2001.
