NBA Power Couple Phil Jackson and Jeanie Buss Call Off Engagement

Turns out, all is not fair in love and basketball.

Longtime NBA power couple Phil Jackson and Jeanie Buss called off their four-year engagement via social media on Tuesday night.

“With mutual love and respect, we have decided to end our engagement,” read a statement that was signed “PJ/JB,” posted to Jackson’s Twitter account, and retweeted by Buss, who added the comment, “Nothing but love and respect for this man.”

“With the nature of our professional obligations and the geographic distance between us, sustaining the relationship has been difficult,” the statement continued. “We have shared many wonderful moments through the years and we expect to remain supportive of each other in the future.”

Buss, who took over as the president and co-owner of the Los Angeles Lakers after the death of her father, Jerry Buss, in 2013, later tweeted her own statement on the breakup.

“The love of my life is the Los Angeles Lakers,” she wrote. “I love Phil & will always. It’s not fair to him or Lakers to not have my undivided attention.”

Jackson, who currently serves as the President of Basketball Operations for the New York Knicks, won five championships as head coach of the Lakers between 2000-10, after winning six with the Chicago Bulls during the team’s Michael Jordan-led glory days from 1989-98.

He also won two championships as a player with the New York Knicks and currently holds the NBA records for most combined championships as a player and head coach.

Buss and Jackson began dating in 1999 and got engaged in January 2013.
