08:18 AM ET 04.27 | Among the options being considered by the Toronto Raptors as they weigh the futures of team president Bryan Colangelo and coach Dwane Casey is making a run at Phil Jackson, according to sources with knowledge of Toronto's thinking. Now that heavyweight sports executive Tim Leiweke has been hired as the new president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment -- the Canadian conglomerate that owns and operates the Raptors, NHL's Maple Leafs and Toronto FC in Major League Soccer -- Toronto's chances of successfully luring Jackson north of the border appear to be much more realistic.

QUOTE(#11):

Phil is the most overrated coach in history. How many titles has he won when he didn't have the best players in the game?

How many did Auerbach win without Russell?

Same answer.

Another "Phil Jackson going to work for..." story. Him and D Rose must be competing for the NBA drama award.
