Talk about awkward. Known for getting rings, Phil Jackson finally has given one as well. The retired coach, who won 11 NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls, is engaged to longtime girlfriend and Lakers executive Jeanie Buss.
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 in a controversial decision the team opted for coach Mike D’Antoni. Could this engagement be Phil’s form of payback possibly telling brother Jim Buss, who made the ultimate decisio,n that they can snub him as coach but he will still be around his sister. Ouch.
