About this deal

And when you pose you accept that that's part of the program, except the internet has made it that I literally, probably receive five to 10 requests a week where people printed the pictures and asked me to sign them.

After the Strings folded in 1993, Buss brought professional roller hockey to Los Angeles as owner of the Los Angeles Blades in Roller Hockey International. Buss also served four years as president of the Great Western Forum, then the home arena of the Lakers. But what she felt was lacking was the empowerment that would come with posing for Playboy, a publication that she’d admired since she was a young woman. Jerry once again owned the second incarnation of the Strings, and he appointed the 19-year-old Jeanie as the general manager while she was studying at USC. I probably receive five to 10 requests a week where people print the pictures and ask me to sign them," she said.

They do whatever it takes to get a signature on a dog-eared copy of Playboyeven if it means shoving it under Jeanie Buss’ nose. Born in Santa Monica, California, [1] Buss was the third of four children to Joann and Jerry Buss, and one of two daughters; she grew up with older brothers Johnny and Jim and younger sister Janie.

Everyone can make their own choices - but I have no regrets and would make exactly the same decision again. According to Buss, the team did not go through a public interview process to hire a GM because she did not want to tip off her brother, as the siblings were in a legal battle over control of the team. Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss, as anyone who watched Winning Time or knows anything about the NBA, has lived a pretty amazing life. Buss attended college at the University of Southern California (USC), where she majored in business and graduated with honors.Given her position as the controlling owner and president of the Lakers, Buss has become somewhat of a pioneer in breaking the stigma attached to woman occupying senior positions in sport. Buss praised her father, Jerry Buss, who purchased the Lakers in 1979 and groomed her into a successful sports executive, for how he handled her controversial decision to pose for the magazine. The pair announced their engagement in December 2022 and are now married just nine months later as the Lakers' owner also celebrates her 62nd birthday later on this month.

Matt is a University of Central Florida graduate and a long-suffering Philadelphia Flyers fan living in Orlando, Florida. The billionaire was previously married to volleyball player Steve Timmons but the pair got divorced after three years as she then began a relationship with legendary NBA head coach Phil Jackson several years later. Women in particular will admire how she has become a respected executive with integrity, a sense of humor, loyalty and sensitivity in a male dominated business. And (McGuire) goes, ‘But always be prepared: wherever you are, someone is going to approach you with the magazine to sign it. When I posed, I was 32 years old, it wasn't like I was making a mistake that I didn't know what I was getting myself into," she said on the Daddy Issues podcast in 2020.In the same conversation with Bensinger, Buss spoke about her 'controversial' nude Playboy photoshoot, explaining that it still peruses her despite having done it over twenty years ago. After this book -- I feel not only enlightened by the sports world but as a business women I feel like I can conquere the world of men as a women. On December 21, 2022, Jeanie Buss and Jay Mohr publicly announced their engagement; and on September 3, 2023, Buss and Mohr were married in a private ceremony in Malibu.
