Will Phil Jackson Coach anywhere again?

Will one of the greatest coaches in basketball history be back? Not just with the Lakers, but with any team. If the Lakers get Howard, does he stay? If the Knicks get Chris Paul and think Mikey D can't get it done, does he go there? If the Heat don't win it all, and Eric is fired, does he go there? I don't know, I do know, that I would like him to come back to a struggling team. I want to see if he really knows how to coach, or it has been the players that made the coach (MJ, Pippen, Shaq, Kobe). Everywhere he has coached, he has had one of, if not the best player in the game. Also, I think if he takes a chance and coaches a down and out team (Timberwolves, Cavs, Wizards, Kings) the risk is far less than the reward. If he can't get the team turned around and leaves mid-season, no big deal. If they turn it around and win it all, he might just go down as one of the greatest coaches ever. Something to think about.

I know some people hate posting of podcast and blogs, but this will be the only one on this thread. Try to only post on the first one. So, if you are bored and want to check out a podcast, see links below. Also a post about Gary Williams stepping down in Maryland. Thanks again and have a good one.

It doesn't seem likely. Just the way things happened, it seems like Phil made his last stand. The interview. His kids being there. It just seems like this was it. Terrible way to end.

The only thing that makes me

The only thing that makes me think he might come back, is how much fire he seemed to have on the sidelines. Maybe it was because he didn't want to go out on such a bad note.

Sports Talk Show in Florida

Sports Talk Show in Florida are starting to spread rumors he's interested in coaching the Heat...

But if he does that ,it'll add to the rumors that he's only a great coach becuz of the talent he has.....

Yeah, if I'm him, I don't

Yeah, if I'm him, I don't coach the Heat, or any team with a "superstar". I'd want to show I can really coach. Granted, a team like the Timberwolves probably wouldn't pay him the same amount as the Heat. But, he would have less of a headache here, not having to deal with pre-madona all-stars.

Phil is not tired of coaching

Phil is not tired of coaching, he is tired of coaching KOBE. Kobe is a great basketball player, but he sucks as a teammate and he is irritating as a person. Phil is tired of dealing with him and his ego. He would welcome a change of scenery and players whom he doesnt have to pacify. He will coach again.

Hey NJHooper, Is there room

Hey NJHooper,

Is there room for him on the new "Brooklyn Nets" bench? He would still be in a big city, but not have as much headache. Excpet of course for Williams (see Jerry Sloan)

The Nets would love him

The nets have Avery, but they would welcome Phil aboard if he wanted the job or a job. Deron Williams wont be able to get rid of two hall fame coaches. Well I hope Not!!!

Zen Master

I am not trying to be flip, but I do think he will coach again, but it will not be in the NBA. It will be a local grade school or high school team. His health is not the best and the traveling that the NBA requires really takes its toll on him.

On the Kobe comment, I will be very curious who they bring in because I cannot think of too many coaches who will get the respect of Kobe right away. I like Brian Shaw, but I think Kobe will walk all over him. And as a Laker fan, it would make the current bad situation even worse.

If the Knicks....

Ever come back and become a serious contender (Amare, Melo, Paul and pieces) I am 75% sure he will come back and coach his former team. I always feel like he wanted an excuse to go back there and coach and help them bring another ring to NY.

I would like to see the Bulls

I would like to see the Bulls get Dwight Howard and then getting Phil Jackson to coach the Bulls.

I think the Dwight & Hedo for Noah, Deng, Gibson, Brewer, and picks (28, 30 and a future 1st rounder) is the best trade for the Magic. It's also a good deal for the Bulls (they get a legit second option superstar, plus a solid 6th man creator in Hedo).

This would give the Magic a good young front line of Deng, Gibson, and Noah allowing Brandon Bass and Ryan Anderson to come off the bench. J Rich and Reddick are good at the shooting guard spots, with Brewer playing off the bench as a 2 and a 3. Jameer Nelson is a solid point guard who can shoot from long range. Nelson, Deng, J Rich is a decent 3 man attack on offense. They can use the 28th and 30th to get a backup point guard and maybe another big man. Maybe the Magic ask for CJ Watson (a solid point guard) instead of the 28th and 30th pick.

The Bulls would add a bigger, better scorer at center with Dwight Howard. Howard, Boozer, Thomas, and Asik is a great four man rotation down low. Rose would have a legit 2nd option (Howard) and would make Boozer a third option. The Bulls will still have Bogans at 2, and Korver off the bench. I like Hedo coming off the bench for them as a creator, ball handler, and long-range shooter. Hedo would make a good fourth option. The Bulls then need a small forward who can score and finish a little as well as play solid defense, but they have the superstar big man they need and they also get a good 6th man with Finals experience.

Maybe they can draft DeAndre Liggins at 44. David Lighty might be there. Still, Bogans, Korver, and Hedo give the Bulls three solid options on the wing with a mix of offense and defense.

This Bulls team would be better built for the playoffs and I think the Bulls can lure Phil Jackson to coach this team.

He'll coach only teams that

He'll coach only teams that have a solid chance of winning it all.....the Heat or the Knicks or Bulls if wither of them add to their chances with free agent signings......I may be a Boston homer, but still get upset on comparisons to Auerbach.

All the banter about Red/Russell and all the other hall of famers....look he not only coached that dynasty, he built it

Only posibility is if the

Only posibility is if the Lakers new coach gets fired for some embarrasing scandal in early April, and Kobe says he wants Phil, and Phil agrees to come back for the postseason.

Hey aamir, The only problem

Hey aamir,

The only problem I see with that, is that I don't think PJ likes Kobe and the other way around. Sure, they can play nice when they are winning, but now that they are both older and both heading the wrong way in their respective carrers, I don't see PJ back in LA unless Kobe is gone. I could see PJ coaching again though, I know somewhere in this theard someone said the miami sports radio stations are already starting the rumor that he will be coaching Miami. I hope that doesn't happen. I hope he either takes it easy and just retires, or like I said earlier, coaches a down and out team and shows us how good of a coach he really is.
