Corbin, who played 16 years in the NBA, said he visited the Lakers before his rookie season when coming out of DePaul.

"At the time, I was a young guy afraid of everything about the league," Corbin said, "and he was really warm. Had a good conversation about the Lakers and had a chance to meet with him and visit for a short time."

The Jazz are just four years removed from the death of their own iconic owner, Larry H. Miller, who died on Feb. 20, 2009. Like Miller’s, Buss’s death reverberated throughout the NBA community. He oversaw 10 championships with the Lakers, including the celebrated "Showtime" era, and the resurrection with Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal.

"It’s a tremendous loss for everybody," Corbin said. "The way that he ran his franchise and the commitment to excellence he had and set for that franchise is long-lasting."
