No better way to end if for the Zen Master than by capturing his 12th ring on his 4th 3-peat!

L.A. Times: Still, Jackson was asked again if he could see himself taking some time off and coming back to coach.

“No,” Jackson responded quickly.

Why not? he was asked.

“I think I’ve put in my service time,” Jackson, 65, said. “I think I’ve done my due diligence that I set out to do, especially with this organization.”

    Phil stopped coaching last year. Thats why Rambis left
    because as a assisant he was coaching and Phil got 12 millon for sitting there . Insiders said enough now its Shaw ,Phil has lost it

    His last quote left the door open that we will be coaching next year, but not with the Lakers. I took it as him saying if he does come back to coach next season, it won’t be with the Lakers. Possibly the Heat or Bulls.

      Greg Papovich and Jerry Sloan are at the top of my list of replacements. I just don’t think Shaw is assertive enough to be a head coach.

        But u do see pApovich and sloan as possibilities?

  • gary_beat_e_z

    i would quit now with this type of laker play

  • lakers_The_Truth

    Well, I just hope when playoff comes this Laker team will give everything they have to award the Zen Master with a 4th 3peat.
    BUT the way they are playing now will be for sure a huge embarrassment end for a such glorious career.
    Wake up mofo!!!!! Lakers fuck you get this shit together!

  • SHOWTIME4EVA

    leave it to Kobe to mess up perfectly Bad playing.

  • ONLY KINGS
