Count Phil Jackson Out As Your Dream Coach in Clipper Land

First and foremost, this was never going to happen. Ever.

But for all the loony Los Angeles Clipper fans that thought Phil Jackson would one day smoke enough peyote that he’d go coach the team, here’s some news crushing that dream. After informing the Brooklyn Nets that he doesn’t want to take the position of head coach for the organization, Woj dropped a little note on twitter on Jackson’s future endeavors.

If Phil. Jack returns to the coaching reigns, he’ll be sitting on the Los Angeles Lakers bench, but that opportunity died once the higher-ups at Laker land chose Mike D’Antoni over Jackson. And since last summer, Jackson’s been attempting to get in someone’s front office so he can run the show a la Pat Riley does for the Miami Heat. Remember those Portland Trailblazer rumors that were floating around?

So kill the dream Clipper fans. Phil Jackson’s not walking through that door. You just better hope that Vinny Del Negro isn’t walking through that door either.

UPDATE:

This little birdy just popped up on my timeline.

So the dreams are back on Clipper fans. Phil Jackson’s a good enough coach to where you relinquish all say so in the roster. I still say there’s no chance in the world that Jackson would take this job in the same city where he won five championships.
