Buss tweets engagement to Jackson, shows off ring
LOS ANGELES — Known for getting rings, Phil Jackson finally has given one as well.
Buss posted a picture Thursday night on her official Twitter account of her left hand with a diamond ring on her finger.
The accompanying tweet read ”Twitter family – Phil finally gave me that ring I wanted!” followed by a smiley face.
Buss later confirmed the engagement to ESPN.com, saying she received the ring at Christmas and she’s ”beyond happy.”
The 67-year-old Jackson and 51-year-old Buss have been dating since 1999.
Jackson nearly returned to the Lakers in November, but the team opted for coach Mike D’Antoni.
