Bryant said Tuesday that the siblings are ``following the greatest owner in sports,'' but he believes that in their own way the Buss offspring will have success.
The elder Buss died Monday at age 80 of kidney failure as a complication of the cancer that he had struggled with for the last 18 months.
Bryant recalled visiting Buss in the hospital on a day when the owner was in good spirits. They discussed Bryant's career, which began when the Lakers acquired him as a 17-year-old, Magic Johnson and the ``Showtime'' era Lakers, and the rival Boston Celtics.
``That was a good day,'' Bryant said.
