To be fair, when he took the Laker job the last time he had Kobe and an awful supporting cast. But you still make a fair point.
That said...being able to get massive egos to work together is a skill that not everyone possesses, and he's the best at it in the world of basketball.
Yes, and all that said, WhoTF would look at the teams that Phil has led to titles and say "Naw, f**k that. I want to try and coach up a bunch of hacks that are 2nd and 3rd stringers." I know I wouldn't turn down superstar talent for the chance to coach the bucks/cavs/hornets. Sure, it'd be nice to see, but f**k that. I'm sure we'd all do just what he did, too.
