Just like a lot of fans, Magic has an impression of how great Phil used to be but lets keep it real he didn't coach very well in 2010/2011, we had that one amazing 16-1 stretch but seriously you never felt was heart was in it. They had to pay him big to have him come back. Mitch made a trade for a backup C and he still ran Pau out there for 40+ mins a game when Bynum was out. Shannon was shooting 20% from 3 point land and he let him shoot 3s left and right, I could go on and on
We have Pau today, hes not playing like an All star but we're holding on to hope that he will turn back the clock and play like he did in 2008-2010. Phil isn't the same he was then and Pau isn't the same he was then.
The next best choice was MDA...I like Sloan a lot but Im not sure if he can handle the zoo here in LA with all the distractions and what not that goes on here.
MDA increases the value of players in our systesm and it favors Dwight and Kobe a lot...at the end of the day you want a system that makes your best players easy to do their best and MDA's system does that. It is extremely hard to teach the triangle in midseason
Instead of coming up with a defensive scheme to stop Dallas from hitting 3s he was saying thishttp://lakers.ocregister.com/2011/05/08/jackson-needs-more-maverick-misses/54467/
After Game 1, during which the Mavericks hit 9 of 20, Lakers coach Phil Jackson said he was “banking on” Dallas not continuing to shoot 45 percent from beyond the 3-point line. Jackson suggested the Mavericks would eventually come back closer to their regular season average of 36.5 percent.
