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.
