Yesterday, the basketball world lost one of its most beloved figures with the passing of Dr. Jerry Buss, 80, owner of the L.A. Lakers since 1979. He embodied the American dream, rising from near poverty to help foster, nurture and own a team he loved and helped lead to their 10 NBA championships under his 34-year command. He branded, befriended, and bolstered the team, created their "Showtime" slogan, and turned its $16 million value into billion-dollar franchise. We celebrate his legacy with a photo roundup of some candid and memorable moments from his life and career.

Let's take a look at some professional athletes who have made noise while splashing onto the NYC Scene. More»
There's no such thing as a meaningless championship, but a rare or unlikely title has a special significance all its own. So while L.A. was pretty bummed out that their beloved Lakers suffered their second straight ignoble playoff exit, I'd say you guys got an even greater gift, as the L.A. Kings overcame 45 years of frustration on Monday to finish off the New Jersey Devils and win their first ever Stanley Cup title. And from the look of the adoring crowds that showed up yesterday to cheer on their downtown parade and Staples Center rally, Kings fever may have come on quickly, but it's not going away anytime soon.

Last night the New York Giants dominated over the New England Patriots for the title of Super Bowl Champions. Some actually took the game seriously, chugging light beers and sporadically screaming at the television, while others (and by others we mean a good majority of those "one day a year" sports fans) were just waiting for the yearly tradition of watching the train wreck of a half time show. Ever since the Janet Jackson "wardrobe malfunction" 8 years ago, the NFL has kept a tight lock down on its acts, using headliners for a more PG crowd like Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, and possibly the worst half time show in history, The Black Eyed Peas. But this year was Madonna's year -- a chance to thrust herself back in the spotlight and prove she's got what it takes, even at age 53.
