    Phil Jackson is coming back to L.A.

    My husband just called to tell me that he heard the "breaking news" announcement - Phil Jackson has re-signed to coach the L.A. Lakers. They didn't say anything more than that, but the news conference is supposed to be at 2pm. Should be interesting. This might make me interested in the Lakers again. I'm wondering how much money Phil's getting. My husband said he'd been reporting as asking for $5 million a year and a VP title in the organization, so I guess we'll see what the deal is that they made. I'd love to know the conversations that went on with Kobe. And given the statements that Phil's already made about Vlade, this should be fun. It might be time to pick up the next few issues of Sports Illustrated...

    I just read this myself. I love Phil Jackson, and I'm so glad they're bringing him back. Guy's a freaking brilliant coach.

    From Yahoo Sports:
    Jackson agreed to a three-year contract. Terms were not announced, but it's believed he'll be earning between $7 million and $10 million per year, which would make him the highest-paid NBA coach ever.

    Yeah, the Lakers have been sucking pretty hard. But if anyone can do it, Phil Jackson can!

    I totally agree. How is he going to reign Kobe in? Isn't that something he was really unhappy about? I thought I read an excerpt (or an article about) his book that referenced how the managers pretty much let Kobe do whatever he wanted without objections. I haven't faithfully watched the NBA games in years, but I hope he can straighten this year's team out.

    The current Lakers have no cohesiveness. Phil will change that. A team has to feel like and act like a team. The Lakers just didn't have that this year.

    I doubt the Lakers will be contenders this next year but watch out for the one after that once Phil has a chance to evaluate, cut and rebuild.
