Jim Buss did not go solo to Phil's house. Mitch went with him, they both said they left feeling like Phil might have been interested. And like I said: if he "might" have been interested, if there was a modicum of doubt, then he wasn't the man for the job.
I really think you're all living in the past, but I've said my piece. I made my point.
This is where people are taking issue with you and mgmt (if that is in fact how they felt).
If thats how they felt the it reinforces to us they made the wrong choice. No one who is as accomplished in their field as Phil Jackson has to jump at a potential offer without carefully considering it.
Other teams are wooing/beggin him to come, and we move on because he didnt sign the contract in his living room??? THE MAN"S AGENT WAS FLYING OUT FOR MONDAY!
Makes no sense whatsoever.
Fact is, they didnt want him and the meeting was merely lip service.
