After her father died in 2013, his 66% controlling ownership of the Lakers passed to his six children via a trust, with each child receiving an equal vote. In 2020, she became the first female controlling owner to guide her team to an NBA championship, giving her six NBA titles overall as an owner/executive. It felt invasive to me, and that was if I was asking someone eating their dinner to sign a napkin or a baseball card. Well, for those who missed it, and for all those Jeanie and Lakers fans out there, we thought we’d give you something else to cheer about. And so it never dawned on me that these pictures would have a life on the internet of their own and will always be out there.

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. As a side note, many people get Jeanie Buss’s Playboy photos mixed up with an iconic photo she did with Sports Illustrated and later decided to use for her Twitter avatar at one point.

With their series-clinching Game Six victory at the Staples Center, the Lakers, and coach Phil Jackson, put the perfect capper on a sensational 2000 NBA season.And I was like every other model, I had to go through the test photo shoot and all that kind of stuff.

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 has spoken about the reasons behind participating in the magazine as she said it was her own "personal goal".

At age 14, Buss attended World Team Tennis meetings with her father, who owned the Los Angeles Strings. Lakers Owner Jeanie Buss Throwback Playboy Shoot Main / February 22, 2017 Daughter of the great Jerry Buss once posed for Playboy, after all her dad was maybe the biggest playboy in Los angeles. 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.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. A graduate of USC, she was deeply involved in the business side of her family’s sports teams from the young age of 19. She revealed that despite her past appearance was in the magazine's May 1995 issue, people still approach her for autographs on those photos, particularly due to the prevalence of images on the internet.

We take intellectual property concerns very seriously, but many of these problems can be resolved directly by the parties involved. During an interview on "In Depth with Graham Bensinger," Buss talked about her experience with Playboy. She was engaged to former Lakers coach and former New York Knicks President Phil Jackson for four years, after dating him since December 1999. In fact, it was not that long ago that Buss revealed that she still has to defend her decision to participate in the shoot, and precisely why she wanted to do it in the first place. Throughout her stint with the Forum, her role with the Lakers increased, and she served as the Alternate Governor on the NBA Board of Governors since 1995.

Buss also served four years as president of the Great Western Forum, then the home arena of the Lakers. Beginning as the general manager of a professional tennis team at age 19 to owning a professional roller hockey team to being president of the Great Western Forum to vice president and then president of the Lakers, Jeanie Buss has seen and done a lot. Except the internet has made it that I literally, probably receive five to 10 requests a week where people have printed the pictures and asked me to sign them and they send a postage-paid envelope for me to send it back. 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.
