I also agree with DK.
Phil Jackson isn't an amazing coach because of his X's and O's, but he's just a weird dude. By weird, I mean that he's got this talent that no other coach has. This talent is being the best motivator, mind preparer. The man gets the best out of each and everyone of his players, from 1-15. Who else can do that?
Agreed, but this is a tough situation for Phil to walk into seeing as Laker management already has the most expensive roster in the league even without Phil Jackson's salary. I'm thinking he'll expect at least 10 million which would put a heck of a lot of pressure on him to win a championship which the fans will expect. Although it's also a lot of dough, it's also a lot of stress.
