Five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant honored the late Dr. Jerry Buss with a special message to players at the WSOP yesterday. The legendary Lakers owner was a fixture in big California games for decades and he specifically loved stud poker.

Kobe made the dedication and gave the official "shuffle up and deal" announcement for Event #23: $2,500 Seven-Card Stud. Caesers Interactive invited Bryant to play in some events this year but rehabilitation from injuries will keep him out, at least until next year.
