08:06 AM ET 08.15 | Phil Jackson, dogged by the retirement question until he retired, will now be dogged by the unretirement question. Maybe for the Knicks in 2012. It's a topic that will arise every time the Knicks fail to play any defense or show that they need someone other than Mike D'Antoni to figure out how to get the most out of Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire. Jackson himself didn't totally rule it out, as he told several reporters, before presenting Winter and Rodman in Springfield's Symphony Hall. "You can't tell," he said, when asked how he'll like retirement. "I'll know in October, November, December, January or February -- whenever they start the season -- what it's like to be without ball again."

Phil is done. I'm not in love with Mike, but Phil is not the answer at this point.

Damn; I can't believe we agree on something.

QUOTE(#2):

IF phil wants to coach, he basically can pick and choose anywhere he wants to go for basically any price he sets......

I hope Phil stays retired for his own sake, since the man left on the top and as one of the greatest of all times
