    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- There is growing concern for Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss. Eyewitness News has confirmed he is in intensive care, battling an undisclosed form of cancer.


    The 79-year-old was admitted Thursday to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he is undergoing chemotherapy.


    There are some reports that he only has a few days to live.


    Buss bought the Lakers back in 1979 and quickly built the team into a champion. In fact, the team has won 10 championships under his ownership. He has had a huge impact on the game, certainly building the Lakers into one of the greatest sports franchises in NBA history.


    "He knows exactly what he wants to do and how he wants to construct the ball club and he was extremely, extremely smart in going about it. It's very rare to find that kind of owner that can really, seemingly not make any mistakes. It's pretty impressive," said Kobe Bryant.


    Other players reacted to Buss' illness online.

    I'm hoping he pulls through, but he is ill. Reports aren't looking good.
