Jackson Counsels Buss; Says Lakers a Mess
“[The Lakers are] going through crisis and if they ask me to come and sit and just listen to what’s going on, I’m willing to do that,” he (Phil Jackson) said. “As of right now there’s not a position that’s open there, in which to have an influence — so I understand that.”
Naturally, he talks to his fiancee, Jeanie Buss, who is an executive and owner with the team.
“I’m trying to counsel her on ways the team can improve,” he said. “They’re a mess, we know that because of their financial disorder right now, that’s the thing they have to get straight right away.”
