Just two days after Dwight Howard talked about the Lakers season, the one and only Zen Master was on “Mike & Mike In the Morning” today and he talked about the Lakers choosing Mike D’Antoni over himself. Jackson said when Mitch Kupchak told him the news, all he do was laugh. He also thought it was funny that Kupchak would pick Mike D’Antoni to coach the roster the Lakers had over himself. Phil did say he thought the hiring was the best for Steve Nash, but not for Dwight Howard. I think most of us can agree with this. The triangle wouldn’t utilize Nash to the best of his abilities, but it would sure work with Pau Gasol and Howard a heck of a lot better than it did and D’Antoni’s system.
Jackson went on to say that he doesn’t see himself coaching again, despite all of the rumors that have come out recently. He has been linked to the Brooklyn Nets, the Toronto Raptors, and the Los Angeles Clippers. He has also been helping the Pistons in their search for a new head coach.
I personally think Phil needs to stop talking about the Lakers because he isn’t part of the team, and hasn’t been for awhile now. All he is doing is creating drama — something the Lakers don’t need more of.
