Phil sailing into retirement?

Coach Phil Jackson was asked before tonight’s game against the Sacramento Kings about which players he might vote for as backups for the All-Star team. He declined to say, then spoke about some of the ways some teams try to sway (read: bribe) coaches to pick players. He talked about receiving gift boxes with bottles of wine and trips to Cabo San Lucas after the season then added with a wry smile, “Actually, I’m waiting for a boat.”

Perhaps the better to sail off into the sunset after his final season of coaching the Lakers.
