Return Of The Zen Guru
Jackson's homecoming should augur well. Just hope he is able to rein in Kobe's narcissistic streak this time around. Any team with only one great player is like a car with only one wheel: it will remain stationary. He should be able to give the entire bench the direction which is sorely needed. I had dreamed of another championship when they had Shaq, Karl Malone and Gary Payton last year but Kobe and Shaq's feud ruined what would otherwise had been a sure deal. Maybe next season?
Phil Jackson doesn't actually need this kind of pressure as his name will already be as legendary as Red Auerbach and Pat Riley. He's probably doing this for love of the game. (And girlfriend, Lakers' owner Jerry Buss' daughter) - LOL...
