As heard on 710 ESPN.

I put together a NATION DISCUSSION on the blog:

http://lakernation.c...ife-after-phil/

It is being reported that Phil Jackson has told Magic that he may retire after “next season.” It has been reported on 710 ESPN and is rumored to air Sunday during the Lakers/Spurs game.

There are a myriad of questions - who should be the next coach? Will this affect Kobe’s decision as a free agent this summer? This is definitely both a motivating and sad news that has us all thinking in Lakers Nation. How do you guys feel? 2 more titles and out? I could do with that…?

No mention of PJ retiring only that Jeannie Buss is posing for playboy again.

NOT!!!!

Horrible timing.

Why would Phil announce this now?

Considering Phil's personality the dramatic way he's announcing this isn't at all surprising.

No point in becoming upset over it now, though. We still have this season and next season to go after titles.

Phil's old as hell, he should be spending these years going on fishing trips in Montana and meditating for 5 hours while playing his drum. No homo.

It's just a really odd time.

Announce this in the off-season, not now when it is likely to play on your players minds.

:no: :unsure:

Bad, BAD idea...


Great player...TERRIBLE coach.


Phil will coach as long as the Lakers are favorites to win it all...the guy LOVES to win...maybe more so than Kobe OR Jordan.
