Is phil jackson still dating jeanie buss taking the next step in online dating
Ohm Youngmisuk and Cassidy Hubbarth react to Phil Jackson and Jeanie Buss calling off their engagement, and how this should affect Knicks' fans ideas of Jackson's commitment to the organization.
()Phil Jackson wasn't in the mood to stop and catch up.
The now bicoastal relationship began north of the border, as the couple first hit it off after having a drink together following NBA meetings in Vancouver.
The spark continued on a flight back to Los Angeles the next day, as described in Buss’ book: “As the first-class passengers were called, I asked if she was going to board the plane, but she said she flew coach, explaining that flying first class wasn’t necessary and that the Lakers didn’t need the added expense,” Jackson writes in the foreword to the book.
“Phil wasn’t looking for the job, and then he wasted 36 hours of his life preparing for it when they were never in a million years going to hire him anyway. Thus began the unique circumstance in which Jackson and Buss are each executives of the two most valuable franchises in the NBA, which looked into the situation to address any issues of impropriety.
“To avoid even the appearance of a conflict, we have addressed the issue with the Knicks and Lakers to ensure that the relationship between Jeanie Buss and Phil Jackson will not affect how the teams operate,” NBA spokesman Mike Bass said upon Jackson’s hiring.
After a season-and-a-half with the Suns, O'Neal was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2009–10 season.
Regis, on 55th Street, Jeanie Buss fondly recalls some of the wonderful times she’s had while staying in the venerable hotel.
“When my father was alive, we always took this opportunity to go to Broadway plays, spend time together and go to fabulous restaurants,” Buss tells The Post.
“Let’s just say that was the beginning of something special.” Jackson coached the Lakers for 11 seasons until retiring from the sidelines in 2011.
After living with Buss for several years in Playa del Rey, Calif., Jackson, who has been married twice previously, proposed to her on Christmas morning in 2012.
