08:19 AM ET 11.24 | What is the future of Lakers ownership as Jerry Buss nears 80? Buss, two months away from turning 78, remains determined to hand the team down to his children, although the first audible to his original play call has been made. Jeanie and Jim are indeed following their Jerry-ordained paths in charge of the Lakers' business and basketball operations, respectively, but first-born Johnny has dropped out of the picture that his big, unstable personality so dominated in [a 1998 magazine portrait]. Joey was 14 back then, and his name appeared once and only once among the 5,935 words used in [the article]. Now 27, Joey is very much in the picture -- and he might well have the common sense and the sturdy relationships with Jeanie and Jim to change the story.
