Phil Jackson signs on for another year at the Lakers

LA Lakers coach Phil Jackson will return for another year despite ongoing health issues.

“After consulting with Lakers team internist Dr. John Moe, I feel confident that I can gainfully pursue an NBA season with another long playoff postseason. All things point to go!” Jackson said in a statement.

Jackson has endured an angioplasty, suffers from gout and has also had problems with his hip, back and leg.

Jackson holds the NBA record for most championships for a coach, having delivered 10 championships in his 18 years of coaching so far.
