Phil Jackson Could Be The Next Lakers Head Coach

Phil Jackson

Once the Lakers finished off their all-you-can-eat buffet of a summer, there was really only one man for the job. Sure Mike Brown was the coach at the time, but all along, didn’t this job have Phil Jackson‘s name written all over it? The job is his to lose now, with everyone from Kobe Bryant calling him the greatest coach in sports to Jim Buss sitting on his ego for once and acknowledging PJ is the man to even Jackson himself phoning his old assistants to check on their availability, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Brandon Knight Takes out Ohio State With a Last-Second Dagger; Spurs Lose on a Buzzer Oop

Brandon Knight

John Calipari is spoiled. Quit being selfish, Cal – Do you really have to snatch up every great guard? Y’all know the lineup. Rose. Evans. Wall. Brandon Knight ain’t on that level.

(Almost) Daily Fantasy

The Doctor is still taking house calls for the rest of today. If you want your squad examined, go to HERE. Here are the names you need to know for day one of the NBA Fantasy Season.

Gilbert Arenas – The Washington Post reported this morning that Arenas thinks he’ll be able to return in December. For me, an Arenas owner, I’m less concerned on when he’ll return and more concerned with what his game will look like. When Gil returned last year he was a 40% shooter who didn’t have the same explosiveness. Most owners, and Wizards fans for that matter, would rather see Gil back in January when he’s fully ready to go.

Allen Iverson – Sure he had his knee drained about a week ago. Sure his ankles feel like dung. AI has pronounced himself ready to go and with Melo being suspended for the first two games of the season, AI (and JR Smith) are going to be asked to pick up the scoring slack. He should be in all week one lineups. Read More »
