VIDEO: The Poker World and Kobe Bryant Remember Dr. Jerry Buss

This past year the poker community lost one of it's biggest supporters; owner of the Los Angeles Lakers, Dr. Jerry Buss. Buss was a regular at the World Series of Poker, and regularly played the biggest games with the best professional poker players in the world. To honor Buss, the WSOP invited basketball superstar Kobe Bryant to play, and although he couldn't make it, he did offer up the "Shuffle up and Deal" via video for the 7-Card Stud Championship.

Lynn Gilmartin spoke to members of the poker community including Nolan Dalla, and Jason Mercier about Buss' impact on the poker industry.
