Jeanie Jackson? I guess it has a nice ring to it. On Thursday, Jeanie Buss took to twitter to announce her engagement to Phil Jackson. #bbpBox_286997419189739520 a{text-decoration:none;color:#F00}#bbpBox_286997419189739520 a:hover{text-decoration:underline}Twitter family - Phil finally gave me that ring I wanted! :-) http://t.co/rIJnTLgoJanuary 3, 2013 4:48 pm via TweetDeckReplyRetweetFavorite@JeanieBussJeanie BussJeanie is the daughter of Laker’s majority owner Jerry Buss, as well as executive vice president of business operations for the Lakers. Phil and Jeanie have been dating for 12 years, so it’s good to finally see them take their relationship to the next level.Much was made about Phil Jackson possibly returning to fill the Lakers head coaching vacancy, but that position was quickly filled by Mike D’Antoni. Laker fans have since been left to wonder what could have been.Was Phil passed over for the Lakers position due to his relationship with Jim Buss’ sister Jeanie? We may never get the answer to that question, but I can’t help but think it clearly had something to do with it. Despite what we were told by the Laker’s organization, Jackson’s system seemed to be a much better fit for the old and slow Lakers than Mike D’Antoni’s.In the meantime, rumors continue to persist that Phil may be interested in the Net’s head coaching vacancy. It remains to be seen, but I wish the best for the happy couple. Still, I can’t help but feel that Phil and Jeanie’s wedding may be a bit awkward with Jim Buss around. The post Jeanie Buss And Phil Jackson To Marry appeared first on Laker Nation.
