Phil Jackson has been relatively quiet since the Los Angeles Lakers decided to hire Mike D'Antoni as their head coach, but it appears he has been watching from afar. Jack McCallum of SI.com caught up with Jackson recently, and Phil had plenty to say.
When asked if he takes notes while watching games Phil revealed that several teams had asked for his opinion on what he saw, including the Lakers.
I sometimes take notes. I have some people who have come to me and ask, "Would you watch my team, see if you can pick anything up?" Four or five teams, plus the Lakers. [He wouldn't identify the other teams.] So while I'm not officially in the consulting business, it might come in handy sometime.
