Joey Buss Rumors

The Lakers’ extended family suffered a loss last week when the Los Angeles D-Fenders video coordinator, Adam Cave, died in a motorcycle accident. He was 22 years old. “We are shocked and deeply saddened by the news of Adam’s passing. His energy, positivity and passion for this organization were apparent and made him a favorite among our coaches, players and staff,” D-Fenders president and CEO Joey Buss said in a statement.

Jerry envisioned youngest sons Joey, 31, and Jesse, 28, having highly prominent roles at some point. Both are cited by team sources as smart and diligent in their current roles. They have a different mother than the four elder siblings—and a very different backstory. Joey and Jesse grew up in San Diego, far removed from their father’s glamorous life, and they acted almost like two shy kids in awe when they got into it.

The D-Fenders, the Lakers’ NBA Development League affiliate, start their season on Friday, visiting the Santa Cruz Warriors. The team is run by President and Chief Executive Officer Joey Buss, who is also part-owner of the Lakers. “My desire is always to win, and I hope to translate that onto the court,” Buss told The Times at D-Fenders media day Tuesday. “At the same time, it’s very important for the team to be a development tool for the Lakers.”
