Phil Jackson exit interview

June 22, 2008 |  5:30 pm

What you'd expect from PJ - Disappointment in the way the season ended with a sense of accomplishment over how far they came. Those of you looking for any contrition over the work he did in the Finals will be disappointed. There's the desire to learn from mistakes, but not to overreact to them, or try to apply this season's lessons to next season's team when the personnel and how they're arranged might change. There's talk of how to integrate Andrew Bynum, Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom, the difficulty they'll have returning to the Finals in a tough Western Conference, and the challenges of entering next season as a favorite.  Of roster issues (like Sasha Vujacic), of Kobe now vs. Kobe a year ago, and the Olympics.  And so on and so forth.
