Los Angeles (CA) - There is still no official word on the return of the legendary Zen Coach Barbatrucco. Barba is unreachable by telephone: he'll be grazing yaks in some remote part of Tibet, as usual. Or he's already flying over Transylvania, reading some good books, waiting to land in Los Angeles in the coming hours, to put his dreamcatcher in his El Segundo office, and get back to work with the Lakers. Who knows. Meanwhile we found a brief interview with Kobe Bryant appeared today on ESPN2K.com.

Los Angeles (CA) - "I saw him!" A shopkeeper of Italian foods says Barbatrucco came this morning in his shop to buy mozzarella, parmesan cheese, tomatoes and eggplants, ingredients for cooking "Parmigiana".
"I'm sure it was him!" said the shopkeeper. If he was right, it would be the second proof of the presence of the Zen Coach in Los Angeles after the finding of airline ticket at the exit of the gate 12 of LAX (photo below).

Lakers managment continue to deny rumors. "Our coach is Byron Scott" state, "there's nothing more to say." But they seemed nervous. In the city growing waiting. A group of fans perched in front of the El Segundo offices since early morning to catch a glimpse of something.

The Los Angeles Lakers have won 17 Nba titles during the 40 years in which they have been coached by Barbatrucco. A long time ago Barba is also sitting on the bench of San Antonio Spurs for three years, winning a Larry O'Brien Trophy. During his career the Italian coach won 18 Nba titles (out of 20 Nba Finals) in 43 seasons. He won all the first 12 Finals played. But he has won only two rings in the last 10 seasons and its quotes are in sharp decline compared to the first glorious years.

Percentage of winning Nba titles in relation to seasons coached
-----------------------------------------------------------

1. Phil Jackson (Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers) - 11 Nba titles in 20 seasons, 55%
2. "Red" Auberbach (Boston Celtics) - 9 Nba titles in 17 seasons, 52%
3. John Kundla (Minneapolis Lakers) - 5 Nba titles in 11 seasons, 45%
4. Barbatrucco (Los Angeles Lakers, San Antonio Spurs) - 18 Nba titles in 43 seasons, 42%
5. Gregg Popovich (San Antonio Spurs) - 5 Nba titles in 19 seasons, 26%
