    Default Phil Jackson

    If we ever gonna get a good production out of DeRozan and Gay, I think we need the right coach. Bring in Phil Jackson, who might turn DeRozan and Rudy into a Jordan and Pippen clone. But with our current coach in Dwayne Casey, it's not gonna happen. Casey focus too much on defense and neither DeRozan nor Gay is good at that, we are a run and gun, triangle offense type of team now so bringing in either Phil Jackson or Avery Johnson is fine but it would be a dream to land Phil Jackson and establish his triangle offense for us and possibly he will make Valanciunas a good player for years to come.

    I can't see Jackson wanting to accept a "project". He's a win-now type of coach.

    You guys should of seen the amount Phil Jackson hate on the LA boards when he was coaching. Just goes to show you that no matter what market, fans always know the most about coaching.

    I dont think he has the heart t take on aproject team the loses and lack of execution in close games would make him keel over.

    I must've read that wrong. There's no way you just compared Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan to Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. Nobody is THAT delusional.

    The only way we "bring in" Phil Jackson, is with a burlap sack, complete with rifles and a white van

    It might cost them theyre entire cap space to sign PJ.

    He wont accept coaching that entails Canada. His hip is going to act up every winter.

    That will get him here but will not make him stay. You will need a Depak Chopra, the Dalli Lama, and whole sack of money.

    I'm not about to suggest it wasn't crazy, but Scottie Pippen is a fairly good physical comparison for Gay.

    Also, I hadn't even read how retarded this post was......Jordan and Pippen were maybe the best defensive wing pair ever. That's the main reason they won. Not because Phil Jackson ran a high-powered offense. it was shut the other team down and let MJ go to work/

    he's also "I can't physically stand whole game" coach

    Give DC a chance I think he's one easily in the top 3 coaches we have had

    Not to mention MJ was THE best player in NBA history IMO. Phil gets a lot of credit but his history of players is off the charts. Also, truly believe Phil was nothing without Tex Winter. Agree with your physical comparison between Pippen and Gay though. Actually believe Gay scores more easily but Scottie is Top 50 all-time. Not sure Gay is even Top 50 in the current league.

    He said he's not coaching, again. Besides, if a team is making it to the Finals already, why would the franchise change coaches?

    Jackson says a lot of things, he said he was definitely not coaching before and then later left the window open when LA was looking for a coach and now says hes def not coaching again.. many people picked LA to win this year and they are on their 3rd coach for the season.. so.. yeah.. but I agree I don't think we will see him coaching ever again
