EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The Zen Master is done coaching the Los Angeles Lakers and his two biggest stars could be leaving the team, too.
Phil Jackson, one of the most successful coaches in NBA history, won't return as coach of the Lakers.
Meanwhile, Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant looked as though they could be playing elsewhere next season.
It appears that this ride is over, time for the Lakers to re-build. They did alright, though, 3 out of 5 championships, plus another finals
appearance, better than your average NBA team.
