Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss has died after a battle with cancer.
Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Shaquille O'Neal, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar all visited Buss in the hospital at various stages after finding out about his condition, which was diagnosed at an unknown point last year.
Buss had been in the hospital numerous times the past two years. He underwent an undisclosed surgery last August and was admitted a month earlier for what the team called dehydration. He also was hospitalized in December 2011 for blood clots in his leg caused by excessive travel, according to the team.
Over the years, Buss gradually handed more power to his daughter Jeanie, in charge of the business side of the team, and son Jim, who oversees basketball operations.
Before his most recent medical issues, Buss continued to take part in decision making for the Lakers.
Buss weighed in on the hiring of Coach Mike D'Antoni in November and, a few months before that, was eager to meet Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, high-profile Lakers additions who visited him separately after being acquired.
"I just know how much he loved the game," said Clippers forward Lamar Odom, who won two championships in seven years with the Lakers, when he learned of Buss' declining health. "I know how much he put into it, whether it was traveling with us or just his effort that he put into us winning. He was the best. He was always close to his team and his players. It's tough to hear about that."
It wouldn’t be rivalry week without a mascot head getting stolen. On Wednesday, the head of the Duke Blue Devils mascot was stolen and put up on a stake on top of a student store in Chapel Hill.
A photo showed up on Instagram of people wearing the mascot head before it was placed on the stake and had this caption:
“Shout out to my brother and his friends for stealing the Duke mascot head and mounting it on a stake.”
According to myfox8.com:
Derek Rowles, an executive producer for ABC 11 in Raleigh, said Chapel Hill Police have taken possession of the Duke mascot head. It was removed from the bookstore around 3:40 p.m. Wednesday.
This incident should up the ante for the game on Wednesday night. UNC is having a down year, but in a rivalry game, anything can happen.
Local news report says team sources claim that the Vikings are looking to trade Percy Harvin following a blow-up with head coach Leslie Frazier. The incident was credited for why Harvin was placed on injured reserve and why the Vikings are looking to trade Harvin.
Mike Max of WCCO Radio reported this weekend that the Vikings are actively pursuing a trade for wide receiver Percy Harvin.
According to the report, the reason the Vikings put Harvin on injured reserve while he was healing from an ankle injury was related to a meltdown Harvin had that was directed toward head coach Leslie Frazier in the presence of several players.
Sources said that teammates didn’t take well to Harvin’s blow-up at Frazier, which was similar to an episode Harvin had with former head coach Brad Childress. As a result, the report claims, the Vikings are looking to trade Harvin while his trade value is high.
Harvin is under contract for one more season and there has been speculation that, if the Vikings were looking to trade Harvin, any potential trade would likely have to come prior to this year’s draft.
