Phil Jackson; Hoops Zen Master Guru, Back to Lakers?

Phil_Jackson_LakersLOS ANGELES – Kobe Bryant still hasn’t gotten over the way his final season under then-Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson ended in a second-round sweep from the playoffs.

Bryant wants a chance to make up for it this season. He fully endorsed Jackson to fill the Lakers’ coaching vacancy caused by Mike Brown’s dismissal, following L.A.’s dominant 101-77 win over the Golden State Warriors on Friday.

“Phil, obviously, you guys know how I feel about Phil,” Bryant said. “The one thing that’s kind of always bothered me is that his last year, I wasn’t able to give him my normal self because I was playing on one leg. That’s always kind of eaten away at me that the last year of his career, I wasn’t able to give him everything I had.” (Click to read the entire article by Dave McMenamin at ESPN.com)
