Is it possible for Chicago to land LBJ and Phil Jackson?
According to sources the Chicago Bulls have reached out to Phil Jackson to gauge his interest in returning to the franchise he won six NBA titles with. Jackson is in his final year as head coach of the Lakers and could possibly be looking for employment elsewhere.
There has been no direct contact between Bulls’ officials and Jackson however a person close to the situation thinks that Jackson would be open to a potential reunion in Chicago next season.
Chicago has around $23 million to spend in free agency.
If LeBron James was to team up with Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, there is a great chance that the Bulls’ franchise would once again be tops in the East.
If you add the Zen-Master into the mix, you’re looking at another NBA Title for the Windy City. It’s being said in circles around the league that the only way LBJ has a chance of winning an NBA Championship is to hook up with Phil Jackson.
The same Phil Jackson that coached Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, & Shaquille O’Neal to multiple championships.
