PJax's comeback statement: “Count me in ... It’ll be the last stand for me, and I hope a grand one.”

2011 Motto: Do it for Phil :)

ya I saw this on the bottom of Jim Rome is Burning. I am so happy that he is coming back. Now we have to resign Fisher and get a backup Guard and Center.

They said LA is willing to use the MLE now in the ESPN chat since Phil is returning. Buss is going all in :D

If Buss is going all out, wow! I see us picking up an upgrade at every bench position. We need Fisher for sure though, his playoff toughness and clutchness is priceless!

I think Buss saw dollar signs as well with a price hike, under the guise of Phil's retirement tour.

LOS ANGELES -- Lakers coach Phil Jackson will return next season, putting off retirement for at least another year to chase his 12th NBA championship.

Jackson made the announcement Thursday with a news release. The two-time defending champions' coach said last week he was leaning toward retirement after another long season, but he changed his mind after getting a week to rest up at his offseason home in Montana.

Jackson, who will turn 65 later this year, says next season will be "a last stand for me, and I hope a grand one."

Jackson is the winningest coach in NBA playoff history, with 225 victories and two more titles than Boston's Red Auerbach. He has won five titles with Kobe Bryant's Lakers and six with Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls.

Good to have him back for another chance at a 3 peat. Lakers now need to focus on revamping the bench mob.

I new it. I had that feeling this morning with Shaw taking himself out of the Cleveland job and then Scott taking the Cleveland job that Phil was coming back. That 2 events just had me thinking that they probably knew Phil will be coming back and he did. Let's go for #17 and the 3rd 3-peat for the lakers.

So would it be more fitting for Phil to face CHI or NY in the Finals next year? I guess whichever one makes the best signings but that would truly be an emotional ending for Phil

So many f***in phoney people on this board. They are full of misery, never happy always putting players down. They hate the players You would never believe we won the World Championship. One day you fools the well is going to run dry. Happiness will turn to sadness in Lakerland.

Chicago maybe,but NY no way! Miami only if Bosh and Lebron join forces there with Wade which is a wet dream in my opinion and many experts at this point. Chicago looks more as the best set to challenge us if Bosh goes there too. Otherwise,the Lakers if they get Miller,T Mac,and a point guard like Blake they will not have a problem with any combination except Miami trio plus a bunch of roll player,because those guys together are a ton of power. Lakers will not loose to any combination if the bench gets revamped.:D
