Phil has been getting a ton of flack in the media and by fans for the comments that were leaked in his book Eleven Rings, where he states that Michael Jordan is better than Kobe Bryant. He event felt the need to respond to it all, tweeting:

If you've kept up with Phil and his books, he's often highly critical of Kobe. Part of this may be because Phil is the Zen Master and knows that Kobe's detractors are partially what drives him to be the Black Mamba, since he's still active and MJ isn't. 

However, Jeanie Buss, Phil's fiance and the woman keeping Lakers' fans hopes alive, publicly disagreed with her man, tweeting: No big surprise there because she'll obviously pick the player who brought her family and the Lakers so much success during her dad's later years in life. It's just interesting that when Phil is going through the media gauntlet, she's just piling on.

And this is why they're the best couple in basketball.
