Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson joined Fox Sports Radio with Petros and Money to talk about his team's upcoming playoff series with the Phoenix Suns. In the course of conversation, Jackson indicated there's "a pretty good chance" he won't be back coaching in L.A. next year.


What are the chances Jackson retires after this season?

Jackson: Well, I think it's pretty good. It's really about how I feel about getting into another 82 game season. It's a commitment. As you guys know, it's not about this last month of April, May, and part of June to coach. That's exciting, fun, challenging, and you've got a team in a seven game series that brings out all those ideas and percolates things as a coach. But it's those other 82 games, the exhibition season, and being in five different cities in eight different nights or seven different nights. It kind of wears and tears and kind of creates a life that gets a little bit ragged and a little bit jagged.

Obviously I have the pace of that. I know a lot about it, having done it for a large part of my life, maybe 35 years of my adult life. I've got a little bit of the rhythm of it, but it is something that I think about as the season gets to the end. You know, last road trip and stuff like that. You wonder, is there a time where you just feel like I've had enough, I just don't want to do it anymore. It's enough is enough.

Heard this earlier, hope it doesn't happen. Only way is if Jennie Buss opens her legs more often!

I'd hate to travel to many different cities, in a back to back night.

Have done it.. not fun at all.

Before the game tonight he also said:


Jackson swatted away another rumor of his imminent retirement before the game, saying he hadn’t thought about his future since the last time reporters asked him about it.

If they win it all, I'd bet on him coming back to go for the three peat

if the lakers win this year, he will stay. He wants to go 4-0 in 3 peats finishing with 12 rings. 10 rings to fill the hand, 1 ring for his left toe and 1 ring for his right toe.

Craig Sager already reported that the interview was after a long Laker 6 or 8 game road trip. That was like sometime in March. He hasn't said anything since then.


So yes, if (when) the Lakers repeat, Phil is coming back for the 3-peat. After all, Phil wins in sets of 3. (But with this team, I wouldn't be surprised if they can get a 4-peat in the near future! :))

Yeah I doubt he retires, but if he does Kurt Rambis must feel like **** for leaving to go to the T'Wolves when he could be next Lakers coach.

He won't, besides it's not like he's pouring his heart out there and playing the game, he's just sitting down and telling the players what to do! Come on now

He said this during or right after a long road trip and hasn't said anything since. He's not retiring.

Phil has had issues with his hips and back. The travel can't be easy on him. If the Lakers win I bet he will be back to chase another 3 peat. The day is probably coming when he hangs it up, isn't he 65? I don't see him coaching more then a couple years tops, so I seriously doubt he coaches anywhere besides LA.
