Lakers coach Phil Jackson has one year left on his contract, and plans to return next season even though he'd like to quit.
"I'd like to quit at the end of this year," Jackson said. "But you know I won't do it.
"This time of the season, when you're traveling, it's weary, you're like, 'Can I do this another year?' But by the end of July, I'll be ready to go back and coach basketball."
Jackson, 63, can't wait to relax.
"I'd like to be hunting and fly fishing and hiking, but physically, I can't do that anymore," Jackson said. "I also like traveling, but that's also a strain.
"This (coaching) has become part of my retirement life and my middle-aged life... I'll probably write books a little bit. Mentoring."
