Phil wants to give it another go!
Sports Radio Interviews: Lakers coach Phil Jackson still isn’t sure if he’ll return next season, but made it known that he would like to give it one more go.
“The organization is obviously behind what I want to do and they’ve extended that offer for continuing here, so that is all positive,” Jackson told ESPN Chicago.
“It’s just covering that hurdle. And, some of that’s just getting old, and the wear and tear of the game, and the amount of flying that you do. You know, this 82 game pilgrimage that you go through before the playoffs even begin and the wear and tear and if that’s a necessary part or if this is the time now to step back, and regard that as accomplishments done and sit back in the rocker and enjoy watching guys do this. But I’d still like to push on through another year if possible.”
