it seems rich that Phil expected them to be on their knees begging for him. He's not the only competent coach in the world.

It's not like the guy left on a high note. Lakers got embarrassed by the Mavs and he got clearly outcoached by Carlisle.

The best part was, whatever the demands are, phil said he would agree to the terms and then they hired D'antoni. Oh lord I love it when people **** up.

reminds me of when the Knicks were trying to get in on the free agent haul and ended up with Amare.

Phil was retired. He's old. He was like yea I'll come back but you gotta make it worth my while.

I have a feeling they won't win with Mikey. If you buy into the whole "NBA fixed/heartwarming story" thing, getting Phil would be a huge story and would likely lead to the Lakers winning a championship. Easily.

Now I'm not sure. I think D'Antoni is one of those guys that NBA doesn't want to win.

You guys can say I'm crazy for thinking of things that way, but we'll see what happens.

Magic only got a piece, because he's bookoo paid.
Does Magic have more cash than MJ because of the theater deal he had in the 80's?

Because salary wise and endorsement wise ... I don't think he ever made as much as Jordan.

The only thing we can admit is that we'll probably never know what the details were between Phil and the Lakers...

...that is, until Phil writes another book.

Mamba out

when you're asking the owners son to step out of the picture and take control yourself your demands are already real high, whether people think Jim Buss is a idiot or not.

he may not have asked for some of the stuff people are saying like not going to away games since thats ludicrous, but he had to have been asking a ton knowing him and how he's been the last couple years when it came to him coaching the lakers or retiring. he constantly seemed to play the retirement threat to bargain for more money and control.

Lakers are already paying a $100mill roster of superstars along with a coming $30 mill luxury tax, ceding control and a ton more money just for a coach bringing in a questionable system for this team isn't worth it.

This. Mike Brown was so bad that people forget Phil Jackson's last games with LA were an embarrassing sweep to the Mavericks.

Phils demands were reasonable....except for his not going on road games demand.

Thats a deal breaker for me. Whats he gonna coach from home over skype?

the only unreasonable demand was significant ownership rights. even the old Buss would not want Laker ownership to go away from the family.
