NBA News: Los Angeles Lakers Coach Phil Jackson Leaning Towards Retirement


He’s retired before, but it makes sense to go out on top. Again. Sorry if I seem harsh, but I’m from Minnesota and live in Wisconsin, so I’m a little jaded towards people who say they are going to retire.

Jackson made jokes during the regular season when asked which direction he was leaning, but gave more of a concrete answer when asked on Wednesday.

Jackson said he was leaning towards retiring and that he was going to have a series of medical tests, head to his cabin and think about the test results for a week before making his final decision a week from Friday.

The Lakers players all want Jackson to return to lead the theam to a third championship in three years.
