I want a lot of things in life, specifically Elle Varner at the moment, but some dreams just don’t come true. I am trying to think of a scenario where Phil would come to Brooklyn and besides being offered a billion dollars I don’t see any.
According to ESPN sources though they Nets have their eyes set on Jackson.
Jackson’s longtime representative, Todd Musburger, told TNT’s David Aldridge on Thursday that his client has “no interest in the Nets’ job at this time.” But a source told ESPN that Jackson would indeed entertain an approach from Brooklyn and that his flirtation with the Lakers after Mike Brown’s dismissal five games into the season got him “thinking about coaching again.”
Maybe the Nets should have asked Phil Jackson if he was interested before they fired Avery Johnson, but I digress.
