Phil Jackson looked to be all set to take the Lakers' head-coaching job, but he received a bit of a shock after the team decided to go with Mike D'Antoni instead. D'Antoni has gotten good results out of Steve Nash before, but he's also never won a championship, while Jackson has a pedigree that's the envy of nearly every coach in history. The Triangle offense might not have been a great fit in Los Angeles this time around, but will D'Antoni's fast-paced approach make the Lakers into contenders?
Are you shocked?
D'Antoni (pictured here during his Suns tenure) has an impressive résumé, but Jackson's hiring seemed to be all but a sure thing.
Will Jackson stay retired?
Phil Jackson probably would have to be presented with a unique and stable coaching situation for him to return to the bench.
