    Don't get me excited...

    Still don't understand why people would not want Jackson as coach. "He had Jordan, Shaq, Kobe, blah, blah, blah". Other coaches had Shaq, Kobe and other star teams and didnt win.

    Good things will follow, including players, if he is our next coach.

    He is a great coach but he has never developed a team like Larry Brown has. But Brown only has 1 title. Not all coaches are the same. I would be skeptical if Jackson could take on a development role like we need.

    Scenario (... not gonna happen but wow, if it did?)

    LA amnesty's Kobe and he signs with Detroit to play for Phil.
    ...ok, repeat after me: 'un-paid consultant'; there, back to reality.

    I thought about this same scenario last week., but then Derek Fisher would show up in Auburn Hills too, trying to get that elusive sixth ring with the only coach he won the prior 5 with.

    We would have made the playoffs this year with Phil coaching, right?

    Would Gores show up to their games if Jackson were coaching?

    Only away games against the Clippers and Lakers.
    He might show up to a game at the Palace if it was a national TV broadcast.

    This is stating to take form. Remember my "When does Dumars get fired Poll" ? Well is it's gone but 2013 is looking good. I don't think it went to 2014.

    Good Article about Phil Jackson, in the end there is a reference to what he is doing with the Pistons.

    I'd like to see Shaq elbow him in the face and then have a ref call a blocking foul on him.
