Lakers News: Jeanie Buss Says ‘There Was No Role’ For Phil Jackson
[new_royalslider id=”190″]

Jeanie Buss has been put in a very difficult situation with all that has gone on with her fiance, Phil Jackson. In order to help clear the air on a few things, Buss sat down with Time Warner Cable SportsNet’s Bill McDonald to talk about Jackson’s recent decision to join the New York Knicks and not the Los Angeles Lakers:

Although many Lakers fans were frustrated and confused by the situation, Jackson simply different have the job offer he was looking for from the Lakers. Jackson has made it clear that he loves living in Manhattan Beach with Jeanie, but the desire to get back to work and the enormous offer from the Knicks was too good to pass up on.

Buss sympathized with the frustrated fans by saying the following via Time Warner Cable SportsNet:

With Jackson now on the East coast and the Lakers currently in disarray, there’s no telling what direction the storied franchise is going in. The past paints a picture of constant stability and limited time in mediocrity, but it’s hard to tell if the team will be able to bounce back as quickly as it has when Dr. Jerry Buss was calling the shots.

Only time will tell if Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak can right the ship in Los Angeles. This summer will be the first real test to see if the Lakers can get back on track with a high draft pick and a considerable amount of cap space at their disposal.
