Former NBA head coach Phil Jackson has 11 NBA Championship rings to go with his Hall of Fame career.

Jeannie Buss’ ring

Yet, he has finally proposed to his long-time friend Jeannie Buss, a Los Angeles Lakers executive. Buss is reportedly beyond happy to be getting married to Jackson.

She reportedly has been wearing the ring since Christmas, but just revealed the news tonight. There is no date, as of yet of when the two plan to be married.

The couple has been dating shortly after Jackson became the Los Angeles Lakers head coach in 1999. Two years ago, in an interview with Forbes, Buss was stated as saying that she did not anticipate getting married, even to Jackson.

This would be Jackson’s third marriage, and he has five grown children from the previous two marriages.
