David Schuster of the score apparently facebooked that Phil Jackson is still in play for the Bulls. Schuster and I aren't friends [not that we're enemies, I just mean we're not connected via facebook], so I haven't seen it first hand though apparently B&B also discussed it on the radio.
The rumor comes down to the Bulls reaching out to Phil combined with Jerry Buss getting sick of winning championships and deciding to pinch pennies (really, how'd Rudy T work for you Jerry, you really think Phil doesn't make a difference?).
Let's be realistic here, the Bulls are only bringing in Jackson if they're bringing in LeBron which alone is enough to hope that Jackson comes here. If anything pulls him away from both the Lakers and retirement it will be the opportunity to coach one of the greatest players in the NBA and try to win an NBA title with his fourth distinct cast.
Given that Phil discussed only coaching home games last season, it's hard to imagine him fitting in for the long haul in any other situation.
I do think that Phil attracts LeBron and vice versa, but I think the Bulls need to land LeBron prior to landing Phil, and if they land LeBron, I'd happily accept Phil, but I'll happily accept anyone at that point.
