Too bad Phil won’t be engaging in winning with the Lakers…
Phil Jackson Engaged To Long Time Girlfriend
Via TMZ reports:
Former LA Lakers coach Phil Jackson has finally popped the question to his longtime girlfriend Jeanie Buss — after 12 years of dating — but the real question … could this affect the Zen Master’s possible coaching gig with the Brooklyn Nets?
Our Lakers source tells us the engagement went down on Christmas day, but Jeanie — daughter of Lakers owner Jerry Buss — didn’t reveal the ring until moments ago.
She posted a pic of the huge rock on Twitter with the caption … “Phil finally gave me that ring I wanted!”
Jeanie obviously has massive Lakers connections — however Phil’s currently being courted to take over as head coach of the Nets … which might be a conflict of interest.
