Phil Jackson’s checklist
by rick olivares
According to some reports, Phil Jackson will not be coaching again. “I have no intention of ever coaching again,” said the Zen Master to SheridanHoops.com.
Despite Jackson’s proclamation, many expect him to come back next season to coach the underachieving or overachieving (depending on how you look at them) Brooklyn Nets.
I looked to Jackson’s past and have found a formula that if it works will determine if Big Chief Triangle has one more NBA run in him. And I ran that checklist against three possible destinations.
Of the three, it is the Nets – although they do not satisfy all the criteria – that look to be the closest. But it’s both hilarious and amazing at the same time to see the similarities.
PJ Carlesimo has gone 1-6 since he took over as interim coach but that doesn’t mean is all right in Brooklyn.
I guess we will really find out what the score is at the end of the season and if Phil Jackson has one more ride in him.
