Because the team is millions over the luxury tax. Hiring a coach that wants the sun and the moon isn't going to help that. This is a business at the end of the day. Phil won with Jordan and Pippen, and Kobe/Shaq/Gasol. Same as Spoelstra won with LBJ/Wade. This team as constructed just does not have the personnel to win. They are old. Phil isn't going to make Kobe young, he isn't going to make Gasol healthy and hungry, he isn't going to make the bench play better. Last I saw of Phil he had a higher seeded very talented team get swept by the Mavs. No doubt he is the greatest coach if all time, wouldn't make any difference and certainly wouldn't take a sub .500 team and turn them into champs.

Didn't know Phil told you his demands. As far as i know everything was speculated and his agent was heading on a red eye flight to accept the coaching job and negotiate terms.

Franchises with the mentality of "this is a business at the end of the day" are the ones that fail. The Lakers are about championships first and foremost...money comes with the territory.

PJ didn't want the "sun and moon"; thats already been proven as false.

I like when people throw out the "Phil got swept" argument. That's it? That's all you got? lol

No one cares about that; the man has won so many championships that when he actually doesn't win people think he sucks.
