For those who think Phil Jackson returned to coaching to pull in front of Red Auerbach for most championships for a head coach I have just one question. Why did he return to the Lakers?

Sure Kobe's good. He's also a head case and an army of one at Staples Center. I believe Phil Jackson can improve any team. But return this ugly slab of lottery-ness to championship form? No way.

Major re-building is not Phil's game. He specializes in taking over ready-made contenders. The Lakers aren't even pretending to be pretenders. They are full of dead weight and have no cap room. Only a major personnel deal can make this team Jackson-ready. Sadly, Jerry West doesn't live there any more.
