NBA News: Phil Jackson Has ‘Reservations’ About Leaving California

All indications seem to point to 11-time NBA champion Phil Jackson taking the front-office job with the New York Knicks. Jackson has been mulling the offer to accept a role with the Knicks for the past few days, but does have one thing holding him back from such a move.

Apparently, Jackson loves living in Manhattan Beach with Los Angeles Lakers executive Jeanie Buss. Moving to New York and away from Buss has Jackson hesitant according to Marc Berman of the New York Post:

A source said Jackson has reservations about such a move because he loves living in Manhattan Beach, Calif., with his fiancée, Lakers executive Jeanie Buss.

With Jackson seemingly prepared to get back to work in some capacity, it may be only a matter of time before he’s fully convinced to take the job with the Knicks.

Despite the fact things appear to be progressing well between the Knicks and Jackson, Lakers fans have a first-hand account of being let down at the last minute when the 11-time NBA champion is involved.

Unfortunately, the Lakers missed out on an opportunity to bring back Jackson for a third stint with the storied franchise. Now the Lakers front office can only watch as arguably the greatest head coach of our time potentially heads to New York to help rebuild another storied franchise from the ground up.

It’ll be interesting to see the transition made by Jackson in terms of leaving Los Angeles for the Big Apple. Jackson has always had a soft spot for New York and seemed intent on returning one day, but his pending marriage with Buss may make things incredibly complicated and possibly a conflict of interest.
