return of the zenmaster

As previously predicted here, Phil Jackson has been rehired by the Lakers, to be announced later today at a 5pm EDT press conference at the Staples Center. During his year out of coaching, Jackson wrote a book about his last season in LA in which he called Kobe Bryant "uncoachable". Apparently that was more fluff than substance as Kobe signed a long-term deal a year ago and he and Jackson will again be reunited in Jackson's pursuit to finally pass Red Aurbach as having coached the most championship teams. They both are currently tied at 9.

Phil Jackson will have the Lakers playing a much higher level of basketball next year without a doubt.
