Lakers rehire Phil Jackson as coach
Associated Press
Posted: 11 minutes ago


LOS ANGELES (AP) - Phil Jackson is returning to the Los Angeles Lakers following a reconciliation with the team that cut him loose last year after three NBA championships in five seasons.

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 turns 60 in September, has 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.

Jackson's dismissal a year ago set in motion a makeover of massive proportions that proved to be disastrous.

Dominant big man Shaquille O'Neal demanded a trade and superstar Kobe Bryant opted out of his contract to become a free agent the same day Jackson's five-year run as coach ended.

The futures of O'Neal and Bryant were decided the following month, with O'Neal being traded to Miami and Bryant staying with the Lakers.

Rudy Tomjanovich succeeded Jackson, signing a five-year, $30 million contract, but lasted barely half a season, citing health reasons when he suddenly resigned Feb. 2.

Jackson's name was mentioned as a possible replacement almost immediately despite his having written a book detailing the 2003-04 season in which he called Bryant uncoachable and made other disparaging remarks about the franchise.

With injuries playing a major role, the Lakers lost 19 of their last 21 games under interim coach Frank Hamblen to finish 34-48 and out of the playoffs for just the second time since 1976.

Jackson has coached nine NBA championship teams - six with the Chicago Bulls and in his first three years with the Lakers - from 2000-2002. That ties him with former Boston Celtics coach Red Auerbach for the most in league history.

Jackson also has a record 175 postseason victories and is tied for 10th on the NBA's all-time list with 830 wins in just 14 seasons - nine with the Bulls and five with the Lakers. He has a .723 regular-season winning percentage and a .717 postseason winning percentage.

The Lakers were 285-125 in the regular season and 68-28 in the postseason under Jackson. But this figures to be his biggest challenge since the current team doesn't appear to have what it takes to return to elite status any time soon.

The Lakers are well over the salary cap, restricting their ability to bring in high-priced free-agent talent for at least two years. Their defense was abysmal last season; they had an unbalanced roster with too many small forwards; they had virtually no inside presence on either end of the court; and they were suspect at point guard.

Jeanie Buss, the owner's daughter and the Lakers' executive vice president of business operations, publicly lobbied for months for the return of Jackson, her longtime boyfriend.

She finally got her wish.

Bryant's reaction to a return by Jackson has seemed lukewarm at best. Shortly after Tomjanovich's resignation, Bryant said he would "roll with it" if Jackson returned.

Two days after the season ended, Bryant said he didn't care who was hired as coach, adding he trusted the track record of Jerry Buss and general manager Mitch Kupchak.

"Whoever they bring in here, I'm going to be ready," Bryant said. "I'm just open to whoever they feel like is going to get the job done."

Buss said in early May he believed Jackson and Bryant could coexist.

"Oh, definitely. No question," Buss said. "These people want to win."


Honestly I don't think they can be the team that was once before. Even with Jackson back as the head coach.

Thoights?

All the problems that the lakers had with kobe and phil can be described in 2 words.

Shaquille O'Neal......This man through the use of voodoo cause the temporary insanities that plauged kobe and phil jackson over the past 2 years. All in a futile attempt for this fading light of the NBA to maintain his alleged greatness.

This can be the only reason to explain why the greatest coach in NBA history would write such things about kobe in his book.

It would also explain Kobes wandering eyes that would have him even looking at another woman to have mutual sexual relations with rather than the glamour he has as his wife. It also explains his errand behavour as well.

In fact The mighty lakers should sue shaq for lack of effort in his final year when he showed that after leaving our mighty franchise for the heat that the miserable cretin got his fat ass fit and actually tried to play good basketball instead of the insipid displays the bastard kept producing for us during his final year.

For the team that was assembled it should have put together an almighty better effort than the team did and its obvious shaq's voodoo magic played a part in that when you consider the type of basketball that the glove produced this year while voodoo free. Malone also must have had pins inserted into his voodoo doll because shaq was afraid the mailman would really deliver and complete his quest to finally win a ring. Fisher as well deserved better.

Finally I would like to have 3 cheers that the greatest basketball franchise in NBA history is getting back the greatest coach in NBA history to coach the man who will become the greatest laker ever so they can continue the quest to make the lakers champions again.

Hip hip hooray......hip hip hooray......hip hip hooray

I think Kobe had more to do with the team losing than Shaq had. When your dealing with a whiney little bitch, trying to run the team, are you really going to play your hardest?

Blaming Shaq for Kobe's marrage problems is just down-right stupid.

And what's this "voodoo" thing? Are you siriously saying that Shaq was, "out to get" Malone? That has to be one of the stupidest things I've ever heard.

And until they win more championships than the Celtics, the Lakers are the 2nd best franchise in NBA History.

Getting rid of Kobe would have been a much better move for the lakers than getting rid of Shaq.
