Lakers owner and executive Jeanie Buss accepted an award for leadership in behalf of her late father.
"Everything he did, he did with passion. He asked that of his team and his staff," said Buss at the ceremony. "We will continue on in that legacy. We couldn't be more thrilled to be partners with Time Warner Cable."
Buss passed away in February from complications due to an undisclosed form of cancer.
The Lakers completed their first season with Time Warner Cable after signing a multi-decade contract with the network.
"This season was exactly what Dr. Buss wanted for the fans, was a chance for the fans to get closer to the team than they've ever been before," said Jeanie Buss. "With the launch of the new network, it exceeded our wildest dreams."
Along with Buss' fiancé Phil Jackson, players Metta World Peace, Robert Sacre, Steve Blake and Darius Morris attended the event -- as did General Manager Mitch Kupchak, team trainer Gary Vitti, team spokesman John Black, and broadcasters Stu Lantz, Adrian Garcia Marquez, Bill McDonald and James Worthy.
Time Warner Cable's David Rone (president of sports, news and local programming) and Joan Gillman (EVP and COO) presented Buss with the award in her father's honor.
