Among the highlights from Phil Jackson's press conference previewing the Lakers-Clippers game

 

Lakers Coach Phil Jackson on Lakers-Clippers game

 

--Jackson tried deflecting the possibility that the Lakers and Bulls meet in the NBA Finals. "Is life really that dramatic?"

--Jackson on whether the New Orleans can keep a seventh seed despite David West's season-ending knee injury: "We'll see. That's a key ingredient team. He's their leading scorer and leading rebounder. He puts a big hole in their lineup."

--Jackson on the Clippers: "Until that culture [changes] with the Clippers, you don't know what they're going to do." He declined to say whether the problem is ownership.

--Jackson on the Lakers' 13-1 mark: "I go to sleep well at night."

--Jackson on the Kings relocating to Anaheim: "There's definitely a push, but that doesn't mean it's going to happen. What other metropolitan area has three teams in it? It's ridiculous to put another franchise in this market. It doesn't make sense. There's so much coverage. You guys are going to be overworked." Jackson didn't definitively whether he thinks it will happen. "I'm not surprised about it. But we're always surprised the Clippers never went there. It seemed like an appropriate place for them to go at that time."

Among the highlights from Phil Jackson's pre-game press conference

On the Sun's makeup with Vince Carter and Marcin Gortat; Jackson calls Carter and Grant Hill the Suns' best post-up players.

On managing Phoenix's pace: "We try not to get caught up in the frenzy of it and try to control it with our offense by making multiple passes."

Jackson simply said "Yes" when asked how much the Lakers' 2010 NBA title influenced his decision to come back. When asked if it would've been easier to walk away losing in the Finals: "Right, I more than likely would've. I think it's pretty obvious winning capped off a great season."

He was then asked if winning a 2011 NBA title would insure Jackson's return: "No. There's no such things as four-peats."

--On Kobe Bryant's left ankle: "His ankle is looking much better and it's coming along, but there is still a process."

--On Matt Barnes since returning with a right knee injury: "He's still tentative out there with the things he's doing. I'm concerned he's feeling a little divorced with what we're doing a little bit. It looks to me sometimes he's not settled in the offense."
