Sirius Satellite Radio announced Wednesday that Phil Jackson, head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, will host a weekly NBA talk show.
Jackson will host "The Phil Jackson Show" alongside veteran broadcaster Ian Eagle when the one-hour weekly program debuts Dec. 5. Drawing on Jackson's experiences from more than four decades in the game, the show will include a mix of basketball talk and interviews and air every Monday throughout the NBA season, Sirius said in a statement.
Jackson is one of the most successful coaches in the history of the NBA. He is the league's career leader in playoff victories and his nine NBA titles tie Red Auerbach for the most all-time. Over his 14 year career as an NBA head coach, he groomed the Chicago Bulls and L.A. Lakers into dynasties. In his first coaching stint with the Lakers, from 1999-2004, he guided the team to three straight NBA championships.
