There were many rumors of Phil Jackson returning as an head coach in the NBA. Unfortunately, Jackson has finally revealed that he does not want to coach anymore on the Dan Patrick Show Tuesday night. The closest job in the NBA for Jackson was in Seattle but Chris Hansen (owner) failed to buy the Sacramento Kings. Jackson would have a choices in that organization but that project is no longer happening.
He also said that the Brooklyn Nets situation was a good one but he just simply does not want to coach. He didn't even have to think about it.
The answer was not surprising due to the Brooklyn Nets roster. They are a good team but have a long way to go to become championship contenders. With Jackson aging and not wanting to travel with the team on some games allegedly, it is likely that he would want to step in a situation that is worth while.
I would have love to see the Nets run the triangle offense between Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, and Brook Lopez. The game would come much easier contrary to the isolation heavy offense that has plagued Johnson's career and the Nets for several. Hopefully, Billy King will find the right coach who demands respect and has the ability to bring the best out of the Nets star players. This season was successful but that was all forgotten when they lost to a team full role players. The standards were obviously too high and a championship in three years may be on the same page. The Nets organization should just focus on progression and nothing else.
