Phil Jackson Cancels Chicago Conference Day Before Brown Firing

The Los Angeles Lakers are currently 1-4 and the team is not playing up to its expectations. Coach Mike Brown was criticized for the team’s performance for quite some time, beginning with its 0-8 record in the preseason.

Even though many people didn’t expect the Lakers to fire Brown five games into the season, the front office decided to make the move official early today. There is now a void on the Lakers’ bench and there are many possible replacements in the market.

Former Lakers coach Phil Jackson is rumored to be on the list of head coaches, someone that would be welcomed with open arms. Surprisingly, Jackson was supposed to a be a keynote speaker at Schwab Advisor Services IMPACT conference in Chicago next week, but he decided to cancel that appearance.

In a last-minute development, actor Alan Alda will replace famed basketball coach Phil Jackson as the keynote speaker on the closing day of the annual Schwab Advisor Services IMPACT conference in Chicago next week, according to Bernie Clark, executive vice president, national sales manager of Schwab Advisor Services.

One could look deep into this report and suggest that the Lakers were in contact with Jackson before they announced the firing of Mike Brown. Perhaps there will be a “secret” meeting between Jackson and the Lakers, and that may be why he chose not to attend the conference.

At this point, a Jackson-Lakers reunion is just speculation and who knows if he will come back to the City of Angels.
