Phil Jackson is clear about where he'll be coaching next season, kind of

0 Comments

There have been some rumblings that this might be legendary coach Phil Jackson’s last season coaching the Los Angeles Lakers. When asked about his future plans during Tuesday’s pre-game press conference, Jackson had this to say:

“Do you actually know where you’ll be headed next year?”
“Yes.”
“Is there a possibility you might be coaching somewhere else?”
“No. I can’t, you know, see that. As a prospect.”
“So it’ll be here or nowhere.”
“Probably. I’d say it’s 90% that if I coach anywhere it’ll be here.”
(Media rumbling)
At that point, a chuckling Jackson ended the press conference. Just another one of those moments when Jackson demonstrated his ability to keep everybody, including media, on their toes.
