Making news around the league…
The Lakers get Phil Jackson for another season. The greatest luckiest coach of all time has decided to suck up the chronic leg and hip pain and pursue back-to-back titles. All that pain will pale in comparison to the ulcers likely to be created by coaching Ron Artest.
