This is for you angry Lakers fans! I’m still super hyped about The Zen Master heading up my Knicks, but of course I get why Lakers fans would be so upset.  Many fans wanted Phil to take a front office job with the Lakers.  So why did he chose the Knicks?!  His boo, Jeanie Buss, revealed what happened…



Via LakersNation:

Buss sat down with Time Warner Cable SportsNet’s Bill McDonald to talk about Jackson’s recent decision to join the New York Knicks and not the Los Angeles Lakers:

Although many Lakers fans were frustrated and confused by the situation, Jackson simply different have the job offer he was looking for from the Lakers.
