Well that kind of came out of the blue. The Detroit Pistons have hired Phil Jackson as an advisor in their coaching search. This could mean everything to Detroit or it may mean absolutely nothing. You would think that initialy Brian Shaw would be the most likely coach for Phil to "advise" the Pistons bring in at least for an interview which really wouldn't be a bad thing. Outside of that who knows who or what Phil Jackson can provide this franchise Maybe this is nothing but a publicity stunt, maybe it is a turning point in the direction Tom Gores wants to take the team. Maybe Phil is able to be kept around for the draft and perhaps even into the free agency period which wouldn't be a bad thing either. Who knows what all this means but a little bit of Phil Jackson fairy dust may be just what this franchise needs to kick start it towards success again.
