Jackson's Demand For Paid Nap Time Killed Laker Deal

Nov 12, 2012



Los Angeles - Sources close to the Los Angeles Lakers report that team officials terminated negotiations with Phil Jackson when the Hall of Fame coach demanded daily, paid  naps. "It was totally non-negotiable," said one source. 

"You can nap on your own damn time," owner Jerry Buss reportedly told a stunned Jackson before storming out of the meeting.

"What the Lakers have against  napping is beyond me," Jackson told eTrueSports. Jackson also denied rumors he had fallen asleep during Saturday's meeting with Lakers' GM Mitch Kupchak.

"There's a big difference between sleeping and napping," said Jackson.

"I truly believe the Lakers need to reach out to the napping community," said Jeanie Buss, Jackson’s girl friend, a former Playboy model who happens to be the owner’s daughter. 

"The Lakers are on the wrong side of history," said Jackson, "and they need to wake up."
