Phil Jackson is Now On Twitter!

phil jackson on twitter

Phil Jackson has been out of the NBA, and the limelight that accompanies it, for almost 2 years now. Basketball fans have been deprived of the Zen Master’s wisdom, cleverness and cunning approach.

Phil told it like it is, or at least as how he saw it; it didn’t matter the topic, player/person or even city.

He’s called Vladimir Radmanovic a “Space Cadet” for his times of mental lapses on the court.

In his book, The Last Season, he called Kobe Bryant “un-coachable” describing his stubborn nature.

He called the entire city of Sacramento a “cowtown” and the city of San Antonio nothing but a “tourist trap.”

He’s gotten into war of words through the media with the likes of Mark Cuban, David Stern and Clippers’ owner Donald T. Sterling.

Lakers Playoff Watch 2013: Lakers Loss to Warriors Puts 6th Seed Out of Reach

kobe_frustration2

The Los Angeles Lakers 109-103 loss to the Golden State Warriors last night did more than just drop them 1 game in the standings; it returned the doubt that hovered over the team for most of the season. Much of that doubt had been erased during the Lakers most recent run that saw them climb out of the lower ranks of the Western Conference and back up to playoff contention.

It was just a few games ago that Dwight Howard had been praised for his renewed energy and activity on the defensive end.

Antwan Jamison, Jodie Meeks and Steve Blake had become a formidable 2nd unit.

Kobe was Kobe again.

Then…the last 3 games happened.
