Phil Jackson

Mike D’Antoni finally admitted what we all know.

No matter who the coach of the Lakers is for the forseeable future, he will always be compared to Phil Jackson and the Zen Master’s accomplishment’s.

D’Antoni during a moment of reflection, told The Los Angeles Times that “Jackson will hang over the Lakers for the next 10-15 years.’

No, the specter of Phil Jackson never quite left the Lakers.

“I think anybody that comes in here the next 10, 15 years, it’s going to be that way,” D’Antoni said. “I don’t think there is any doubt that he was so good and so large and he’s still sitting out there.

“Had that bothered me, I shouldn’t have taken the job because you know it’s going to be there. I wasn’t stupid enough to think that, ‘Oh, they won’t remember him.’ Sure they will. It doesn’t really affect what we do day-to-day and how we approach the game.”
