Walton: Phil Jackson Won’t Coach Again
“I don’t think he’ll coach again,” said Cavaliers forward Luke Walton, who spent seven seasons under Jackson with the Lakers. “I think he’ll get involved in basketball — but as far as the travel, and all the long practices and preparation, I don’t think he will.”
Jackson led the Lakers to five championships and seven Finals appearances from 1999-2011. He coached the Bulls to six titles before that.
Jackson’s name has come up quite a bit lately, as the Lakers are 0-2 under current coach Mike Brown, in his second season with the team. They also lost all eight preseason games.
