Jerry Buss had game
http://www.people.com/people/archive/art...01,00.html

Article from 1980.

Grew up poor, full scholarship to college, PhD by 24, made millions from his part-time gig (real estate). And unapologetic player.

Key quotes:
"There he chafed under the regimentation of the aerospace industry and deliberately antagonized security guards by trying to stroll out with classified documents he had written himself. In 1960 Buss stripped off his shoes, socks and shirt to protest the unairconditioned office. Several months later he got hot under his white collar for the last time and walked out of the office before anyone could fire him. "
...

"He rented a small flat in Santa Monica and dropped into neighborhood bars to shoot pool. Some people thought he did it because he was insecure about his money and wondered if people would like him if he were poor. Buss insists he did it for fun. Separated from his wife since 1968, he was living at the time with a former Playboy bunny named Ronnie Huff, who assumed her new man was more or less destitute. "We'd go out for lunch or dinner," she recalls, "and the guy never had a dime on him."
...
""I'm getting old, and I should be dating women 35 or 40," he says half apologetically. "But I find they are so bitter and hate men so much that it doesn't allow for that big romantic shot. Maybe I'm immature, but I still want that." Buss estimates that he spends up to 80 hours working each week ("The life I lead makes it damn near impossible to love me"), eats out nearly every night, then heads for a disco to unwind. "Let's say I walk into Pip's and select someone at random," he says. "Chances are she'll be 23. You might say I should go to a church bake-off, but the way I meet people they tend to be very young. "

...
"I'm fascinated by beautiful women and I love to undress them," he says. "They're like a work of art. If that's chauvinistic, so be it." "

I actually saw on twitter just today where a porn star shouted him out as an old friend. She isn't that great, but bangable if drunk/bored.

Word.


Great quotes. Now that's an unapologetic man doing whatever the fuck he wants to do with his life. Few will ever get to taste the life satisfaction he must've had. He's a red pill role model. Hats off to the man. RIP.

The man is a legend. Grew up on breadlines during the depression era. Turned a $1000 investment in real estate into millions and bought the Lakers. They won a championship in their first year under Jerry's ownership. † RIP †
