Lakers poll: Does Phil Jackson return?

By Brian Kamenetzky

You've heard what he had to say, you've (hopefully) seen the video of his press conference Wednesday.

Now, all that's left is to wait and see what Phil Jackson decides to do after mulling his future this week. (Nothing like the clear Montana air and sky to help a man make important life decisions.) In the meantime, plenty have speculated on his future, some wondering if he's genuinely considering walking away or just posturing to guarantee a sweeter financial package from the organization (I'm in the first group). But even Mitch Kupchak said he'd be surprised if Jackson retired.

What about you? After marinating in the news for a few days, do you think he'll be back?
