NBA legend and pro moustache advocate Phil Jackson took a little time off of sleeping with a woman nearly 30 years younger than him in order to criticize Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss for pretty much doing the exact same thing. (Well, it was actually for nailing a parade of barely legal sorority girls that would make Tiger Woods and John Stamos jealous - but let's not split bleached blonde hairs here.)
Noted Lakers reporter/author Ronald Lazenby wrote that "Buss and his elderly friends gather in his owner’s box at Lakers games with their young dates, a sight that’s increasingly hard for Jeanie Buss, the owner’s daughter and Phil Jackson’s girlfriend, to stomach."
That’s right sports fans. In case you forgot, the much younger Playboy model Jackson is playing "hide the basketball" with is his boss’ daughter.
Lazenby adds “As for those teen-aged girls, Buss has long dated hundreds of them, usually only once or twice each, and then collected their photos in albums. He has not been above boasting about his conquests to some media and associates.”
Sounds classy enough. I mean, who doesn’t keep an album of the teenage girls they sleep with during basketball games?
Lazenby ends his article by claiming that “one Lakers insider contends that only in Los Angeles could a team owner get away with such antics and basically get a free pass by the media.”
It’s almost as if a city built on sex scandals isn’t angry about an old man enjoying himself. Why has nobody tried to rain on his parade yet? Doesn’t he know that elderly people should be miserable? How dare he attempt to be happy!
Oh, and Phil - people who have sex with topless models in glass houses, shouldn't throw stones. Not very zen of you.
