Phil Jackson' comment on Rick Carlisle's statement that Phil will get bored in retirement smoking peyote in Montana:

"Well first of all you don't SMOKE peyote."

Classic Phil.

He's been the coach for the majority of the time I've been a Laker fan. I'll never forget him and he'll always be appreciated.

Thank you Phil Jackson.

The best coach of all time. My favorite coach of all time.

It's going to be weird without Phil. But he really has nothing left to prove.

Can't believe he's really leaving, but it's been a great ride.

We'll never forget those memories.

We will miss you. I hope he stays apart of the front office.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.

Phil,

We sure had a great run over all of these years, counting the days during the first 3-peat and up until now. It's an emotional time for all Laker fans as we will miss you dearly. I will never ever forget all that you've done for this team and I personally won't forget the time you came to the Lakers 1 year later after I first started following the Lakers in 1998. I've essentially grown up with you at the helm with the Lakers so this is why for me personally it hurts. I'm also really going to miss all of the hilarious rants you would pull on certain players and reporters. I'm also going to miss you're incredible calmness during difficulty stretches in the season and after tough losses in the Playoffs. Over the years, no matter how bad we played or no matter how much we lost by I always looked forward to listening to your post game press conferences because you would never get to low. You always had a calmness about yourself, that everything would be okay. I think that one of if the not the biggest thing Lakers fans will not fully appreciate until you're gone.

Well, goodbye Phil...... Thank You For Everything. You'll never be forgotten!!! :man6: :jam2:

I've finally found the courage to join. I've been lurking since forever, enjoying all your posts, debates and rants.

I just want to say I will definitely miss Phil Jackson. Thank you for everything..rings, memories, all of it. There will never be another you. You are the greatest coach of all time.

It will never be the same without him. I can't actually picture the Lakers without him.

Goodbye Phil, enjoy your retirement.

Thank you for everything Phil. You'll go down as the best coach in NBA history. I'll miss the great quotes you gave us whenever you stepped in front of the media. You didn't deserve to go out like this. You will be greatly missed.

Vitti uttered three words that surely applies to how Bryant made two free throws on one leg, walked off the court on his own and processed his rehabilitation plan amid the pain, frustration and tears.

the LA times has some pics of his career

Phil Jackson, a reserve forward for the New York Knicks (1969), catches his breath during an NBA game. He played 10 of his 12 seasons with the Knicks, having his best season in 1973-74, when he played in all 82 games for the only time and averaged 11.1 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 25 minutes a game. His career averages were 6.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 17.6 minutes.
