Via a Kevin Ding article from December 29th, 2010, here’s Phil Jackson on the troubles the league-owned Hornets might run into:
The [Hornets] were recently bought by the NBA, which prompted Jackson to say: “Not happy about that.”
Jackson put forth a scenario where Hornets star Chris Paul might revive his demand for a trade, and Jackson wondered how the league could manage being the one deciding which other franchise would get Paul.
“Who’s going to pull the button on it?” Jackson asked. “When Chris says he has to be traded, how’s that going to go? … Someone’s going to have to make a very nonjudgmental decision on that part that’s not going to irritate anyone else in the league.”
Not bad, Mr. Jackson. I get the feeling this is one of those days where Phil Jackson is very much enjoying retirement.
