Lakers Dwight Howard Receiving Supportive Text From Phil Jackson

The Lakers didn’t get off to the hottest start this season. They lost four of their first five games after not winning any preseason games and fired head coach Mike Brown. After Brown’s firing, many pundits assumed that the Lakers would bring back coaching legend Phil Jackson.

Jackson met with the organization and things seemed to be moving in the right direction. However, things turned in dramatic fashion and the Lakers ended up bringing in Mike D’Antoni despite Jackson endorsements from both Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson.

With D’Antoni, things got worse before they got better with Howard expressing his displeasure in Los Angeles more than once this season. Now, according to a tweet from Dave McMenamin, Phil Jackson has been texting Dwight Howard.

Howard was excited about the prospect of playing in the triangle and getting more post up opportunities before D’Antoni was brought in. Howard may not ever be satisfied with D’Antoni coaching the team, but maybe Jackson could serve as an ambassador for the Lakers to help keep Howard in Los Angeles.

    OKC had 96 field attempts; LA just 77. LA: 16 TO vs. just 2!! by OKC – what a defense: just 2 Turn Overs. When the collective game is such a disaster… what solutions is LA seeking?

    The defense is not coordinated, it’s to easy to find an open guy + 2/4 of the offense depends on Kobe, 1/4 in Nash, 1/4 in the rest = too predictable, too incosistent, too. Which exemplifies how unbalanced this team is: where is the contribution from inside the paint?

    … Howard did not shoot even once during the whole second half. Has Dwight forgotten how to play this game during the past 6 months? Also did Pau? Are we going to invent a ‘Howard-soft’ moniker now? Or since we’re talking about the best big duo of the game… is there anything else going wrong?

    So PJ endorsed himself? I endorse an editor for Lakers Nation!
