You heard it here first folks, Phil Jackson will soon be the New Head Coach for the Brooklyn Nets. Shortly after the Brooklyn Nets were eliminated from the First Round of the Playoffs, they took to the airwaves and let the media know that PJ Carlesimo will not be returning as Head Coach.
This news got the media talking as names like Brian Shaw, Larry Brown and Phil Jackson came into the mix. While each coach equally can bring a lot to the Ball Club, Phil Jackson has the experience and knowledge to turn the Brooklyn Nets into a Winning Franchise.
The biggest roadblock will be that Phil Jackson has expressed that he wants to have control in the decisions that are made in the front office. He has even expressed interest in becoming the President of the team he plans on coaching, of course after his coaching term with the team.
Look for the Brooklyn Nets to accommodate Phil Jackson’s request in order to land one of the best coaches in NBA History. Also look for the Brooklyn Nets to pursue players like JR Smith, Paul Pierce and even Kevin Garnett in the off season.
