Pistons may be interested in the Serbian Phil Jackson

By

In what has become a tradition every two or three years, the Pistons are looking for a head coach. The organization realizes this carousel is not a fun ride and it needs to bring in someone who is going to bring a change in culture (read: winning) and some stability.

Or, at the very least, somebody with a name that most of the fans will not be able to pronounce before he's fired in 2-3 years. 

That man is Zeljko Obradovic, who as far as we know has no relation to former Piston Zeljko Rebraca. But he is related to Gregg Popovich, kind of. The two are apparently buddies and Popovich learned from Obradovic — and not the other way around. Obradovic is known as the European Phil Jackson, which means he could win a lot of rings and say some offensive things along the way, and the Pistons are reportedly interested. 

Just tell me where to sign, bud.
