Phil Jackson gets interviewed by Jon Stewart (VIDEO)

May 23, 2013, 12:47 PM EDT


Phil Jackson has been virtually everywhere the last couple weeks selling his new book “Eleven Rings” but one of my favorite interviews so far is the one from last night with John Stewart on The Daily Show. And not because as a Knicks fan Stewart wants to know about those two rings.

It’s near the end of the interview, when Stewart asks him about coaching the Nets and he says he’s not interested — Stewart doesn’t let him off the hook, he says his eyes say something different. In another interview recently Jackson said his fiancée Jeanie Buss thinks he can and would like him to coach again. And while it will ultimately be the physical grind that keeps him off the bench (in my opinion), you can see there is a part of him still tempted.

And that chair is way, way too small for him.

    Thought Stewart and Phil were the same height…until Phil stepped up onto the elevated stage!

    Phil’s in the”catbird” seat. Why would he want to get back into the grind of head coaching and dealing with all those egos? Both players and owners
