Phil Jackson, Coaching Consultant
I don't know how excited to get...
However, the fact that we get Phil Jackson's input on anything basketball related has to be good. Also good to know that Phil and Gores are friends. I hope that he helps during trades, FA, and the draft, and everything else. Pick his brain for all of its resources.
A spokesman for Gores indicated that this is an advisory role and not a formal position inside the Pistons organization. Joe Dumars, president of basketball operations, said he welcomes Jackson’s input.
"When your team is winning, be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft; on the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing."
