Statement from Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf and President/COO Michael Reinsdorf on the passing of Dr. Jerry Buss:

"We were deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Dr. Jerry Buss, Los Angeles Lakers owner and member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Over the decades he made significant contributions to the game of basketball and built one of the premier franchises in the NBA. Many of his ideas not only brought about change within our sport, but also revolutionized aspects of the business of all professional sports. On behalf of the Chicago Bulls organization, we express our sincere condolences to the Buss family and the Lakers organization."
