Buss' son, Jim, had a brief interview with the LA Times on Thursday.
"He's doing fine," Jim told LA Times. "We just aren't going to make any comments on it. We've been dealing with this."It's been about a year since Buss was diagnosed with cancer, but it is still not leaked to the pubic/media what specific type of cancer Buss is dealing with. Former Lakers Shaquille O'Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabber, Magic Johnson - and current Lakers Kobe Bryant & Pau Gasol have each visited Buss since he had been diagnosed last year.
