Dodgers react to the death of Jerry Buss.

Dodgers co-owner Magic Johnson made the media rounds today to talk about the death of Lakers owner Jerry Buss.



Dodgers president Stan Kasten called Buss “a role model for owners in all sports.” Kasten was president of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks from 1979-90 and said that he became friends with Buss over the years.

“I was there when he was voted into the NBA,” he said. “I remember it like yesterday.”
