The Lakers have honored longtime owner Jerry Buss, who died two years ago, multiple ways.

It still doesn’t feel like enough for a true NBA icon.

So, the Lakers are again commemorating Buss, who would have turned 82 today, when they host the Wizards.

The Lakers won 10 championships under Buss, and a ring is very fitting – and very cool – way to keep his memory alive.
