Lakers’ Jeanie Buss Talks Phil Jackson, Coaching in NBA

When Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters found out that Jeanie Buss didn’t have Time Warner Cable SportsNet (the new TV home of the Lakers), we’ll have to admit we were a little surprised. Then we took a sigh of relief when Jeanie explained that she watches over at Phil Jackson’s house!

Speaking of Phil, we had to ask Jeanie whether she thought Phil missed coaching, especially when witnessing the overwhelming excitement and potential of this particular Lakers team.

“Any coach in the entire world would volunteer to coach this team. I do think he misses coaching.”

As far as being the female face of a male organization?

“I do kind of feel like the matriarch…I feel like all these guys are like my kids.”

That’s quite a few kids Jeanie, but we’re happy someone is taking care of them! Who has been her favorite Lakers “kid?” Check out the full interview below.
