Mark Cuban pays respects to Jerry Buss

Shortly after the news broke about longtime Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss dying Monday, Mark Cuban paid his respects via Twitter.

"RIP Jerry Buss. Your encouragement and support along with your stories of staying true to yourself had an enormous impact on me," Cuban tweeted.

Buss, whose teams won 10 NBA titles during his ownership tenure, had been hospitalized for cancer. He was 80.
