Fox Sports just reported that Phil Jackson will return to coach the Lakers for one more year, Thank God! As a lifelong Laker’s Fan, I am very happy to have him back. There were so many reasons for him to return, here a just a few:
- To attempt to win a 4th set of Three-peat championships.
- To attempt to win a record 12 NBA Championships as head coach.
- The challenge of putting together a team and inspiring them to play for another championship.
- To give Brian Shaw another year to get seasoned and primed to be the heir apparent to his coaching spot.
Now, I hope they can come to terms with his contract and start working on solidifying the roster for next year.
