Phil Jackson 2.0

So I guess we'll find out if Phil Jackson can coach a team that isn't already playoff caliber. To be honest, I kind of think he will make a difference, though how much of that will be due to Kobe Bryant accepting the wisdom that a team consists of five players on the floor is unclear to me. I missed loathing the Lakers this year more than I thought I would. It's just too bad that the Celtics aren't what they used to be - now there was a team that was fun to hate. Anyway, either Zenmaster Phil gives us all a reason to hate the Lakers again (yes, pitying them was nice, but it gets old quickly), or the Jackson/Bryant remix implodes like a matter/antimatter collision. That's a win-win in my book.
