PostPosted: Tue May 03, 2022 1:01 pm    Post subject: Phil Jackson advising Lakers Ownership in Coaching Search

Been a while since we’ve talked about Phil Jackson on here, good ‘ol Jeanie being in love with the past!

Quote:
Los Angeles Lakers are once again turning to Phil Jackson for advice on how to proceed, this time with their ongoing coaching search.

The Athletic notes that Jackson “has been in frequent contact with [Lakers governor] Jeanie Buss about team matters all season long,” and so it isn’t shocking that the team’s perpetually insular brain trust is once again turning inward for more advice from yet another figure from the organization’s past successes.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN had this report:

“This is very much a committee in L.A. putting together this coaching search. And one person who is certainly significantly involved in this process is Phil Jackson. He’s got a voice in this. He did last time when they hired Frank Vogel. He and Kurt Rambis, (Vogel) had been somebody they had considered with the Knicks before hiring Derek Fisher in New York... They’re moving deliberately. They’re not doing seven or eight or nine candidates all at once. They’re kind of going down a list and taking their time with it. I think that process is going to take a bit.”

Remember when Jim didn't hire Phil as the Coach because Phil wanted to have Front Office decision making power and neither Jim nor Jerry wanted him to have it? And all the Lakers fans threw a hissy fit?

Notice how Jeanie(despite everything people told her about him being right) just gives it to him and Kurt now no matter who the GM is?

Jim and Mitch were the only thing that kept this stuff at bay. Which is why she did everything she could through the media, internally and even in pitches to sabotage them.

I trust PJ way more than I trust Rambis. Not sure why all the consternation - sounds like he probably had a hand in advising they select Vogel, who turned out to be a great choice.

That's nice. Phil has a good track record picking coaches.

Man Jeanie is stuck in the past. Showtime and the Lake Show - that's all she can see, except for Jerry West, who despite his age seems pretty current on today's NBA.

Well, the triangle could be better for older players. Too bad Phil hates 3 pointers.

LOL it's like clock work with this ownership, rinse and repeat the old retreats. Phil Jackson? why not Randy Pfund and Dunleavy? if Jeannie Buss or Rambis are reading this, no, that was a sarcastic comment, don't call them up yet.

LOL, you serious? Kurt Rambis IS Phil Jackson. Phil sent Kurt out to test the water, when water is fine, he'll jump right in. don't kid yourself, Phil jackson, Kurt Rambis and Magic Johnson are the REAL owners of this team, Jeannie Buss is just watching 80's Laker highlights and counting $$$.

i can guess the conversation between Kurt and phil when he was fired from the Knicks. Phil probably told Kurt not to worry, why be a head coach when you can run the Lakers, they have a sucker owner (Jeannie Buss) who would buy anything from anyone who had ties with the old Laker glory days.

Why? Seriously, why? I'm not saying that you should trust Rambis. But what has Phil Jackson done as an executive that makes you think that he has good judgment about hiring coaches? If you think that Vogel was a great choice, well, Rambis was supposedly the point man on the decision. I'm not sure that it's really a feather in his cap, given the mess with Lue. But why do you think that Phil Jackson has any expertise on these decisions, especially after what we saw with the Knicks?

LOL.

There's really no hope left until new ownership happens. The Lakers I love are gone.

Total (bleep) show. The modern game has long since passed him by and he proved that in New York.

If they don't trust Pelinka to do the job, then they should fire him and find someone they do trust.

hate Klutch all you want, but they're the only link between Lakers and current state of NBA. no doubt Phil would love to kick Klutch out of the picture so he can control the entire team, then what? this team will be even further away from construct a modern day NBA roster and system.

To be fair, Phil asked Kerr to be head coach of the Knicks before he got stuck with Fisher. So if he’d gotten his first choice, the Knicks would have gotten a good coach…

At least Rambis is not in charge of the Coach selection committee. He might pull a Cheney and pick himself as coach.

Klutch and the Lakers FO are at a impasse right now in their relationship, Phil advising the coaching hire all but tells me that Klutch has lost a lot of power, wouldn’t surprise me if Klutch and LeBron both leave this summer while we give Phil more power.

Sure looks like Phil has softened his stance with Bron & his “posse”.

Melo finally came thru, right? And Phil’s ev n befriended klutch klients now…so there’s that.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/nick-nurse-tells-the-story-of-how-be-befriended-his-idol-phil-jackson-202212146.html

What’s weird is that they didn’t come to terms with Lue before. I thought dude was part of the triangle tree. Either way, I hope they get this one right, but I ain’t holding my breath…this sage is starting to burn my lungs. 😉

it's like picking your poison for laker fans. even more frustrating is the solution is very simple, just dump all ex-Laker aka Jeannie's friends and hire a real president of basketball operations. but Jeannie just couldn't do it, she needs familiarity around her.

The writing is on the wall, Pelinka is gonna get fired and Phil Jackson is gonna be the new president of basketball ops.

i was surprised Fish didn't become a solid coach. i mean banging teammates wives probably wasn't a great look... but was he really that bad of a coach? that knicks roster sucked ass anyway.

he did okay with the sparks, right? how is he as GM of the sparks too?

so... should we give Fish a second shot at the NBA (at least interview him)? or you'd all rather have quinn, marc jackson, etc?
