Jeanie in a Bottle

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Life isn't easy when your dad effectively fires your boyfriend. But as Sports Illustrated once wrote about Lakers President Jeanie Buss with that picture on the left, "she's got balls." The beautiful Ms. Buss answered tough questions from the LA Times' Steve Springer the other day as part of a very entertaining interview.

Unfortunately Jeanie is also a bit delusional. During the NBA Finals, she went on the Mason & Ireland Show on 710 AM, and said the chances of Phil coming back were 95%. Guess that 5% kicked in. Now we learn she wants to get married. Says Buss:

I haven't made it any secret that I have been looking for a commitment from Phil on a personal level in regards to marriage that he has just not been comfortable giving me.

Hey, Jeanie, we love you, but Phil's building his dream house in Montana and your dad just canned him. It's time to find a new guy. Maybe Rudy Tomjanovich is available.
