Are you prepared to hear Phil Jackson, Lakers color analyst? That's one of several roles Jeanie Buss opined he'd be

willing to fill if the franchise needed, in an angle I simply didn't have room for in my recent piece on the Lakers for The Hollywood Reporter that can be found here: http://www.hollywoodre... "Right now he has no official position," Jeanie said of Phil's role with the team. "He wants to be supportive of me and the organization. He has no contractual obligation. He would listen to anything where he might be able to help. If we asked him to fill in on the broadcast because someone was out, I'm sure he'd do it. Just because everyone puts him as a coach doesn't mean that's the only thing he's capable of doing." Jim Buss welcomes Phil's involvement - to a degree. "We can call him at any time," Jim said. "(GM) Mitch (Kupchak) has sat down with him several times, especially with the Dwight situation. I'd be more than happy to have him on a consultant basis. I don't think we're paying him and I don't know if he has an official title. I have no idea if Jeanie wants to sit down and discuss that. But I have no issues with him coming back or having a role.




I know that it's not a for sure thing, just something Jeanie said Phil would do if they asked him as he's willing to do ANYTHING they ask... but I think that's a very interesting position and proposition that they could ask of him just in case that he'd apparently be up for.   Jeanie planting seeds... and Jim apparently being behind giving Phil something official if he and Jeanie got down to talking about it as well as Phil.  So all those are good signs.

I don't think it will happen anytime soon... but think about it.
If Phil truly can't physically coach anymore... imagine..


Are you prepared for Phil Jackson and Stu Lantz on commentary?

If he were doing commentary, he'd probably tell Kobe to do some stuff LOL. He has coaching in his bloood

I think it'd be great, he definitely wouldn't be a homer and could speak on the things the team should do and it'd be great to hear his insight.

Always love hearing it from Stu(there were some years in between where he seemed to overzealous to take credit from us while being the anti-homer) but he hasn't been THAT hard on us lately for the past few years and seems to have found a great balance.

Would like to hear Phil's perspective and I think him and Stu would be a great commentary team.

Am I the only person who doesn't like this idea?  First of all the Lakers already have the best color commentator in the NBA called Stu Lance. Stu not only give out whats going on during the game, he also teach us how the game of basketball works.  Phil to me is so bias with certain players and always have personal issues with people that it will be very hard for him to say anything good.  I know there has been a lot of Phil love but to me this is a bad idea.  Sure he knows a lot about basketball but to sit through a game which at times he felt bored and talk about it to me is disaster.  Heck, he fall asleep when he was coaching during the games sometimes! What will he say when the Lakers play against the Bobcats? He probably couldnt care less to say anything good about any bobcat players.


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

He could be a good NBA analyst but still then he will be so bias that anything he said you have to take it with a grain of salt. Thats why I believe Shaq is one of the worst analyst in the country.   He is not like a Jalene Rose or a Tim Leglar who has no bias against any team or person.

I like Phil Jackson but it seems like the fans put Phil up so high on the pedestol sometimes it makes me sick.  No wonder Jerry Buss have issues with Phil.  Phil gets all the praised and credit.  Not everything Phil touches will turns to gold people.

Can you imagine all the metaphors and anecdotes he would throw out for every turnover or terrible PF, it would be like an Enlightened Bill Walton with clever Gundy sarcasm and his patented 'chuckle'.

 

Ultimately it would be just so entertaining and interesting.

I'd like Phil to join James Worthy during the half time breakdowns and post game breakdowns.

I could see Phil Jackson jumping on the court  and coching the team and this can be one step closer to a coach.
