LOS ANGELES (AP) - Phil Jackson is coming back to the Los Angeles Lakers, the team he left last year after three NBA championships in five seasons.

 

Lakers spokesman John Black said Tuesday the team has rehired Jackson, who was let go by owner Jerry Buss last June 18.

A news conference was set for 5 p.m. EDT at Staples Center.

 

Jackson, who will turn 60 in September, is arguably the most successful coach in NBA history. He had health issues in the past and underwent an angioplasty two years ago. He told ABC-TV before the opening game of the NBA Finals that he underwent a series of tests to make sure he was healthy.

This could go down as the dumbest move of all time.

 

If Jackson is never fired, Shaq never leaves L.A., Kobe's traded for TMac and the Lakers are getting new championship rings. Phil's already lambasted Kobe in his book, Kobe's burned every bridge in LA, and the Lakers have no trade chips available to get legit front court help (Odom's good, but his contract is too long to get equal value back), yet they're bringing Phil back?

Well, at least we'll get to see if Phil Jackson is actually a good coach or not now. Any half decent coach can take a Lakers team stacked with Shaq or a Bulls team with Jordan to the playoffs every year. Now we'll really see what he can do with the current mediocre Lakers team.

dude what i meant by who cares is that there gonna be the same team with him or without him. that team needs more than a coach, they need someone that can get kobe to stop being such a ball hog and be a leader to make him teammates better

Yep, :mischief ..finally he takes on a team without two uber stars. We get to see how good of a coach he really is. I think's Red is pretty happy as Phil's reputation can only go downhill.
