Phil: I still believe the Lakers can make the playoffs

Phil: I still believe the Lakers can make the playoffs

Postby Kobe8Fan on Fri Jan 11, 2013 1:50 am

"I still believe the Lakers can make the playoffs," Phil Jackson said in an email to The Times. "They might have to have a 'come to Jesus' moment to get their defense in order, but they have the talent."

Phil still believes. I believe. If the Lakers only get to the 8th seed when the playoffs come, I believe they can wit it all. Rockets did it when they were in 7th place in '95. I know it's a different sport but hell, do it like the L.A. Kings did last year. A 8th place team winning it all. Go Lakers!

Too bad he's not telling the players face to face.. I'm sure this will still mean alot to the guys though.. Especially Kobe & Pau, & hopefully Dwight.

Motivation from Phil, I'll take it! I still believe as well, it's just tough.

Kobe on talk with Pau about being more aggressive, "it's against his nature, he's always very nice, very white swan, I need him to be black swan"

It's very subtle here but I think he's hinting at getting rid of Pringles & get me a 2 year 32 million contract. Trying hard to not reach here but that's the vibe I'm getting. Do it Jerry! :man13:

So that he can have a repeat of 2011? Phil should be thanking Jim he didn't get the position because it's obvious this team would have been first-round fodder regardless of who's coaching.

Phil is no miracle worker: he can't make lottery teams into championship contenders (see smush-kwame lakers). And with the way they're playing, they're definitely a lottery team.

Why give yourself such a headache when the end result is a major disappointment?

Maybe he should give kobe a call and ask him to donate half of his 30 mil as well. Since the lakers are under .500 and fans keep saying that things would be different had phil been here at the start, I guess it's safe to say that Phil was the sole reason for those 5 rings and not the players themselves (kobe included). :man12:

you're so wrong

phil is a miracle worker in the fact that he coached a team with d-league talent aside from kobe and lamar in 05-06 and 06-07 and led them to the playoffs both times, with the '06 team coming seconds away from defeating one of the top seeds in phoenix

i can guarantee you if phil wasn't the coach, those teams would have been at best a 9-10 seed

Lol I wouldn't put it past Phil to offer to coach the Lakers for free (sarcastically)... just to troll Jimbo for how the coaching search went down.

I think this is the ONLY thing that could tempt Phil back to the Lakers. I really get the feeling he's over us.

You always have to peel back the layers of the onion on a PJ comment.

Is he just taking a shot Jim? At Mike? Saying that if he came in he could right the ship?

Phil loves to jab in the media. I'm sure it's supposed to be a double-edged comment, that offers encouragement to the team while poking fun at Mikey.
