Would've been AWKs if they trade Gasol and he gave a speech.

Magic, still a leader after all these years.

I hope this is on youtube by the time I get home. Pretty sure NBA.com might have it as well.

Not gonna lie I did shed a few tears for the guy when Magic was speaking. He really has changed a lot of people's lives. If only our world could see the vision Jerry Buss had, we would all truly benefit from it.

I really liked Kobe's part about Dr. Buss having a vision and because of that vision that you see so many great players and coaches sitting here today.

Tremendous ceremony.

To those who missed it, there are a few YouTube videos up now.

This channel seems to have most of the speeches.

Anyone who watched it can confirm that everything is there?

They're also on the nba.com home page.

It doesn't have everything, but everything you would want to see. It's missing some family members, some people whom we don't know, and singers.

EDIT: he's missing Gasol's speech but he spoke in Spanish so not everyone would understand him.

Thanks! Yeah I figured from you guys's comments that there was gonna be some parts that wouldn't mean as much to us. I'll try to look for a video of Pau's with subtitles.

The ceremony was great except that random ass guy who spoke that wasn't on the brochure.

Did anyone figure out who it was?

That part was definitely hard to watch. If Dr. Buss knew him, they by all means it was fine, but I have a feeling he didn't know him...

Oh yeah! There's also some Jim Hill parts that are worth watching. He was very deep and soulful with his words. He spoke twice; at the opening and end of the ceremony.

pretty neat idea to have someone be the voice of the fan, someone who at least met dr. buss. too bad the guy was horrible.

Lovely memorial. Magic's speech was amazing and the bond between Kobe & Phil is just so awesome. Even when they had to talk about Dr. Buss, their words just intertwined all the time and Phil looked like he was moved when Kobe spoke.

Shaq & Jerry West were pretty good as well, Kareem was so eloquent. Riley seemed to be on some Eastern religion phase but you could say that he really wanted to coach the Lakers one more time.

I did not see Pau's speech and can't seem to find any links. If anyone can point one with English sub-titles, I'd appreciate it!

I feel that Kareems speech was more mechanical. He seemed to be reading everything from his cards.
