Posted Tuesday April 15, 2014, About: Odom's arrival in New York imminent
Fisher is a 40 year old guy and what Jackson believe is that the player that bridges the learning curve must also be able to run through the plays. Odom is not that drugged out or up; besides, if the league did a random drug test on the regular they would find more than half the players are using some form of drugs. Jackson understands (drugs) as a former player, partying is apart of a players life style, besides, Odom have never admitted he used; he left the impression by not responding to the media claims. I don't believe he would screw up and blow this opportunity.

I don't think so. He just won a NCAA title and is pretty much enjoying the ride of college ball at this point. However, money does talk but I don't believe he will leave UCON
Posted Tuesday April 15, 2014, About: Odom's arrival in New York imminent
This is something that Phil have done in the past; he reaches back to bring his philosophy forward in implementing the system he wants installed. With the Lakers he brought in Ron Harber and Horace Grant to bridge the learning curve of the "Triangle" to the Lakers system. He's doing the same thing now if Odom is seriously being considered as a possible addition to the Knicks. Next he will hire a coach from amoung his former players (Kerr) and the Triangle will be implemented along with other former assistant coaches from Phil's past.
I have 16 years of coaching experience and would love the opportunity to coach the Lakers. Most of my coaching experience is at the Pop Warner level but I have never lost a single game in 16 years. I have former gang bangers, pedophiles, car jackers, and a host of other street talented personnel. A couple of the guys are 7 years old and stand 6'7"; one of them have a hook shot just like Kareem and the other reminds you of Dr. J and Iceman combined. The good thing about this group is that they all are A+ students and excel in the classroom. Society however look at them with a certain amazement and wounderment because their acute blend of knowledge and menace. I've attempted on numerous occasions to get the information out to the media concerning my talent but to no avail. If I can go undefeated with this group I can go undefeated with the pros and hopefully shine light on the talents of my Pop Warner guys. "CAN I GET A JOB?"

One of the Lakers brite spot on a dismal team season.
Posted Monday April 14, 2014, About: Stoudemire: Knicks can be the NBA's best
Either Stoudemire or Chandler will have to leave. The Knicks will have to free up one of those big contracts in order to bring in new players and get better. The Knicks have a good core but Phil Jackson will put his imprint on the team next season and have reached out to Odom the same way he reached out to Harper and Horace Grant that allowed the Lakers to win 3 championships during the early 2000's.
Posted Monday April 14, 2014, About: D'Antoni out, Gasol in?
I don't see either returning. Gasol can't expect to win in LA, nor can D'Antoni expect to win in LA. The Lakers need a fresh start and that entails the team finding a new identity that does not include either Gasol or D'Antoni nor Nash or Kobe. The Lakers, however, do need to get better quickly and that involve some risk, spend wisely and find a coach that develops players because it will take the Lakers a while to get better.
Posted Monday April 14, 2014, About: Teammates irked by The Lillard Rules?
He's the "point" and a young "point" at that, and due to make mistakes that will hurt the team in decisive moments. The experience he's gaining now will help develope him for the future. It will hurt the Blazer more now than in the future but that is the nature of his maturity and it comes at some degree of pain. Everyone wishes for that guy that never have to experience mistakes, but that is not common for guys to go through life without learning.

Don't believe that he would leave New York, but anything is possible.
Posted Friday April 04, 2014, About: Gasol done in L.A.
I don't see Gasol or the Lakers organization reaching an accord. It will be best for both gasol and the Lakers to part ways. The Lakers need to make drastic changes and ride the tide for a while because there's no game changers any where out there (High School, College, Pros) that will help the Lakers cause. Nash should also be forced to leave as well as Kobe and D'Antoni. This team have no solid pieces and time has past for Gasol, Kobe, Nash and D'Antoni.
Posted Friday April 04, 2014, About: Woodson's new answer to all matchups
Teams will begin to counter this "big" lineup with a small, perimeter lineup that draws the "Big" players into a territory that "Big" players don't like to tread. However, on the flip side if those "Big" guys can reak havoic on the inside then the Knicks have an advantage. You need to have a dominate center to play "Big."

The thrill is gone!
Posted Wednesday April 02, 2014, About: Jackson wanted Scalabrine gone immediately
It's Jackson's team, make the decision and move forward. Jackson don't need a coach that's not on the same page stabbing him in the back behind the scene. Scalabrine may want a head coach job; but the Warriors is not where he begin, apply some where else.
Posted Wednesday April 02, 2014, About: Pacers are coming apart
The expectations and focus are high and everyone expect the Pacers to win the NBA finals. This is the team to challenge and defeat the Miami Heat for basketball supremacy in a lot of people's view; so why are they so disappointing at the wrong time of the season? In order to win at the next level you must be able to play at the next level. Once the Pacers learn to win at the next level things will be fine and they could run off a few NBA Finals championships. Hopefully the Pacers learn fast because their time is now!

A good coach on bad teams.
Posted Tuesday April 01, 2014, About: Cavs setting up for major trade
With all the first round draft picks the Cavs have had recently this team should have begun to show signs of improvement; which they are not showing. The Cavs need to find some useable veteran presence.

Who isn't a candidate?
Posted Monday March 31, 2014, About: Rock bottom for Indiana
So; what are you saying? If you noticed the number of losses the Pacers have had since the all-Star break, the Pacers should be pouring it on at this time of the season and sending a very strong message with the talent this team have. At this point the Pacers are struggling at the wrong time of the season and its because Frank Vogel does not have that next level of coaching and can't get his players into that level. You hear Phil Jackson, Greg Popovich, Pat Riley, Doc Rivers, and a lot of the old school coaches talk about getting to that next level; and that's a step that Frank Vogel can't get his players to play, notice the losses?
Posted Monday March 31, 2014, About: Lakers have a dilemma with D'Antoni
D'Antoni and Nash must go! All the good that happened between Nash and D'Antoni is in the past and will not be reduplicated in Los Angeles. Nash has only played a total of 10-12 games this season and D'Antoni is clearly not the coach for the Lakers moving forward. Not to mention, Kobe and Gasol must also leave. The team have to begin a new chapter and the chapter does not include Kobe prohibiting progress or Gasol playing soft. The Lakers current roster have some good pieces but don't have an identity, a player that can carry the load. I don't know who that player might be (carry) at this time but I don't see it in Wiggins nor Parker and Anthony won't help.
Posted Monday March 31, 2014, About: Rock bottom for Indiana
Frank Vogel is not able to coach this team "up", into that next level. Frank Vogel is a good coach but he has a level, and he has reached that level. The Pacers will have to find a coach that can take this team to the next level, his current players don't know how to reach the next level and that's where the separation between the Heat and Pacer are.
Posted Monday March 31, 2014, About: Should Phil Jackson hire John Calipari for Knicks?
Hell no! Calipari is a college coach, he tried the pros once and did not have any success. Calipari is good at recruiting "one and done" players and hoping that they mature enough by the time the brackets come out to advance or else its a "bust." He won't have that recruiting advantage at his disposal and won't be able to achieve success in the pros.
