Thats right Phil, One more year

Not to far into the off season did the Los Angeles Lakers have to wait to find out their coach Phil Jackson would be returning for another season in which he says, “It’ll be the last stand for me, and I hope a grand one.”

Phil Jackson has 11 titles to his name, 6 with the Chicago Bulls during the Michael Jordan days and 5 with the Lakers.

GM Mitch Kupchak said he is very happy Phil has returned, complimenting him on all his accomplishments with the Lakers and touting him as the best coach in NBA History and with Jacksons record who could not agree.

Terms of the contract aren’t finalized but it is reported Jackson will take a pay cut to remain in LA as he and Kobe hunt for their three peat next season.
