Posted Wednesday March 06, 2013, About: Howard's new mentor: Phil Jackson
It's incredible to me that Laker fans can't get move on from Phil. I may be wrong, but I believe Phil won 6 rings with the bulls, and 5 in LA. I don't think I ever heard nearly this much (if any) clamoring by bulls fans that they needed to bring Phil back. But it's happened twice in LA. The lakers have kobe (who many laker fans believe is the best of all time), and other very good/great players around him...yet all the fans do is cry about needing Phil. Teams lose coaches all the time, but no one except Laker fans go on and on and on year after year saying that they need Phil. You arguably have the best resources and market in the league. In the years you have won (and in some you've lost), you've had the most talented team in the league. None of the other teams have Phil either...so it's not like you are at some huge disadvantage.

Do like the bulls fans, and move the eff on already. And remember, in Chicago, he left after winning a championship...in LA, i think he left after getting swept out of the playoffs (in a series in which the lakers were again the favorites).
