(AP) -- Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson has reiterated this will be his last season working the sideline.
Coming into this season with a chance for an unprecedented fourth "three-peat" and his second with the Lakers, Jackson at the time called the 2010-11 campaign his "last stand."
In an interview Thursday with ESPN-Los Angeles, Jackson said, "Most everybody believes I'm not going to fulfill this 'last stand' promise and I will come back and coach again but it really is (my last season). I really want to do this for myself."
However, the 11-time NBA champion acknowledged in September that he's still uncertain whether he'll retire after this season, as he repeatedly vowed last summer when he agreed to return with a pay cut.
